You can choose coloring pages in any number of different themes, for either boys or girls. At Thanksgiving, select holiday themed sheets and encourage the youngsters to put them up around the house.
When children enter school, some of them have more trouble than others with simple tasks like writing and cutting with scissors. Children who have developed their fine motor skills tend to perform much better throughout their academic lives.
Instead of buying coloring books of the child's favorite cartoon or movie characters, use the internet to look up some coloring pages for Disney, Pokemon, princesses, Barbie or whatever your child's particular passion is. There is an endless selection from which to choose.
In contrast, the few dedicated transport-oriented ocean liners that remain typically transport passengers from one point to another, rather than on round trips. Historically, shipping lines built liners for the transoceanic trade to a higher standard than that of a typical cruise ship, with higher freeboard and stronger plating to withstand rough seas and adverse conditions encountered in the open North Atlantic ocean. Compared to dedicated cruise ships, ocean liners usually have larger capacities for fuel, food, and other stores for consumption on long voyages.  Some former ocean liners, such as Marco Polo, now operate as cruise ships, although their number is diminishing.  The only dedicated transatlantic ocean liner in operation as of December 2013 was Queen Mary 2 of the Cunard Line, which features amenities of contemporary cruise ships and sees significant service on cruises.
