I seriously cannot believe that you are considering taking an 8wk old baby on a cruise. Illnesses such as norovirus and germs spread quickly on board a ship, and a small baby has no immune system against these. The medical staff may not have the full facilities to cope with this and if you are in the middle of the ocean when the baby gets sick then they cannot get you to a hospital. Please rethink.

RCI state no infant under 6 MONTHS at time of boarding is allowed to cruise.

Some cruise lines will not take babies under a year, check with a TA.

No! Check with the Cruise lines Terms & Conditions, a TA just might get it wrong.

I have seen young babies on the ships before but I do agree with the respondent below, although the medical departments on the ship are very capable a baby this young could well need specialist care and at times you are a very long way from land, at Christmas we had to turnaround and sail back for 5 hours to be close enough for a helicopter to reach us from San Juan, this made us 7 hours late docking in New York and hundreds missed their flights. Why not choose a landbased holiday this time and take your precious cargo when they are a little older.

I don't think question exists. RCI, NCL, Carnival, who own just about everything else, all state MINIMUM AGE 6 Months.

Traditional or Freestyle ? Whi...

By Camilla Edwards

Carnival`s decision to introduce a new rule of traditional diners on their ships made me think of the whole subject of when, where and with whom do you choose to dine on your cruise. On board Carnival Glory and Carnival Conquest passengers who opt for first or second sitting traditional dining will be turned away from the restaurant if they are more than 30 minutes late for their selected seating. So that means be there on time , and probably queue to get on, or go to the buffet.Dining time s...

Most of you will know I already have two wonderful children, Aimee and Rafe.They’re currently 9 (Aimee will be 10 in September) and 6.But I’m about to join the difficulties of finding 5 berth cabins! Baby number 3 is on it’s way!!Baby is due around mid January (although we’re sure he or she will be late and will come on Rafe’s birthday on 20th January).Being 35 means I’m classed as ‘higher risk’ due to my age (I’m not THAT old, am I??) bu...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
