Here's a thought. Why not take some professional advice from a Cruise Specialist, like the Freephone number at the top of the page? Get a few cruises, lines, ships & prices & then throw the options into this forum to get responses, reactions & opinions from those who've experienced similar circumstances.

The price for children varies from cruise to cruise. Sometimes it is free, sometimes not. You will generally get the best child prices if you travel outside the school holidays. There are two berth and four berth cabins although the size is virtually the same. The extra berths either drop down from the ceiling or fold down from the side. However, with a one year old, you may be better off with a cot. You will find a miriad of cabin grades on most cruise lines, although these can be narrowed down to four basic types. These are (1)inside, no windows but with all the facilities, (2)outside, simliar to inside but with one window, (3) balcony, cabin with a balcony, (4) suite, cabin with more space and with living/dining area and sleeping area. Within each of these there are small price variations depending on location. Cabins in the middle and higher tend to be more expensive. If you look on the different cruiseline website, you can find cabin layouts and video views. Which you want depends on your preferences and the size of your wallet. P&O have a supervised night nursery for under 2 year olds, which you may find useful as you can then enjoy your evening.

Hello you should get a good deal with little ones, usually no charge as they will be in your cabin. There's seems excellent childcare facilities offered on most of the major family cruise ships. My two girls started cruising when they were very young, we had an outside cabin in those days (mid nineties) and there were two additional beds pulled out of the ceiling! Still the same sort of procedure. Check with the cruise lines. Only one problem, if not already, you'll probably become 'hooked' on cruising as will your children !! good luck David Powell, travel journalist.

All ships seem good price wise but not many really cater for little 1 year olds. ie most lines do not allow tots in the pools even with swim nappies and clubs seem to be from 2 to 3 yr olds.please research your line carefull because the ship will make or break your vacation. let us know if you get some good advise.

RCI does NOT do reduced prices for babies - they pay the full 3/4 occupancy rate. Theyalso do not provide baby food, nappies and children are not allowed in the pool. Personally I feel 1yr is far too young to cruise as they are susceptible to diseases etc far more than adults, but the choice is yours.
