Unless you're cruising with family and kids, I'd never do it on mass market lines like RCI, Carnival, NCL and all the others. Just too many kids.

Except for Alaska cruises, Oceania does not have a children's program. Oceania is known as a cruise line for foodies, and we concur. We really love Oceania's low key, upscale ambiance.

I suggest you go to the cruise line's website and go to the area where they list their excursions. They will list whether each trip is mild, moderate or strenuous in activity.
