Orion II for Families
These cruises are not suited to young children, and families are not actively encouraged, though they're not banned, either. No children were onboard during our sailing, but passengers spoke of several young teens on the Kimberly Coast voyages on the original Orion. These light expedition cruises would suit well-behaved children, ages 12 and older, who were able to create their own entertainment and function happily on a mainly adult ship. There's no children's facilities or babysitting, and children would be expected to dine with the other passengers and fit in with the activities.
