Overall, the cruise was fantastic.  However, I had paid for my whole family, including grandchildren to cruise.  I knew in advance that the 8-month-old could not be dropped off in the child care area.  I did NOT know that he wouldn't be allowed in the pool with a swim (or any other kind) of diaper.  So, he couldn't take advantage of the kid area, he couldn't go in the pool, he didn't eat anything (he is nursing and baby food) and he slept in the bed with his parents.  My question is - why did I have to pay for him?

Ship Tip

If you are traveling with babies or young children, bring a folding wagon. It was a lifesaver. Also bring a little inflatable pool for the kids who can't go in the other pools.
