Oceania rarely has children on its small ships, and if they are there, you don't notice. It's always "country club casual" in the dining rooms in the evening, although you may see cocktail dresses...

Didn't have much success with them, although other cruisers swear by them. If I'm expecting rough seas I wear a transdermal patch. Otherwise I use over the counter remedies like Gravol or Bonine. I...
