Hoping to book first foreign holiday a family of, dc will be 5.5 and 2.5.
I've done a mini winter cruise and really enjoyed the lack of airport faff, so was maybe considering a cruise from Southampton, but will it be a bit much with 2 small children, would a holiday village place be better?
Can anyone give any advice or recommendations please? Any kids clubs tha take very little ones at 2yo very welcome, he's a sociable little soul and would love some kids to play with.
Thanks in advance

I think I’d work out which has a kids club for your youngest first and then go from there.

Holiday Village run a crèche at that age which I think has to be supervised by you, the parent. I am not 100% sure though as it’s been a while since we have done a holiday village holiday.

P&O run kids clubs from 2 years old. That could be an option. Never sailed them though. They go from Southampton. MSC are sailing from Southampton just now and do kids clubs for a 2 year old.

Southampton is good as you won’t be restricted by luggage. You can spend 2-3 days at sea though but usually there is plenty to do onboard the ship to keep everyone entertained.
