Baby has to be over 6 months otherwise not allowed. No baby food so take your own, not allowed in pools because still in daipers, baby pays the full 3/4th passenger price, no babysitting facilities as not a year old, 45min mother and baby bonding session once a day......to be honest I think cruising with a baby falls into the 'too hard' category, why not leave it a few years and then go (or why not leave it at home with granny and go yourselves) (bet I'll get flamed for that one!!!!).

There are usually minmum ages for infants, usually around six months. On P&O, there are many cruises where kids go free outside of school holidays. They also have excellent well supervised child activities split into four age groups. There is also a night nursery.

You need to state the age of the infant. For instance infants under 12 months are no longer allowed & clubs & activities are variable relating to age. Regards Wilba.

Addendum: Age 12 months relates to Transatlantic. 6 months or Europe.

We were on Independence last month with our nearly 3 year old who loved it. Independence has a great water area for younsters, the H20 zone, but children have to be potty trained to use it. Although there is a small area for toddlers/babies in nappies. There are four hour long sessions per day put on for the under threes (which you have to attend with them) split into 6 - 18 months and 18 - 36 months. We attended a couple but our son was just as happy walking around the ship, playing mini golf and watching people on the flowrider. We went on the Navigator last year (when he was 22 months) and he was no trouble at all, so dont leave him/her at home, take them with you and have a great time.

A Cruiser? Me Sir? No Sir?...

By Jodie Baldwin

My last blog was about my partner actually taking his first cruise . My blog today has been done by Mike who tells us about his first cruise experience. Today is part 1 with part 2 to follow next time. Here goes!The idea of a cruise never really ‘floated my boat’. Hundreds actually thousands of people lumped onto a vessel, fighting for space and corralled for a least a week . No- not for me. On the other hand , if your partner is employed by one of the largest cruise travel agenci...

Over the last few years here at www.CRUISE.co.uk we have seen the cruise industry change massively. Gone are the days when a simple cruise will suffice, people are now wanting more from their cruise.We are seeing a steady rise in the requirements to do a land stay prior to the cruise (or after it in some cases). Not only that but people are wanting tours and particularly escorted tours that really give an essence of that region.Our most popular package of the last few years has undoubtedly been...

Is River Cruising Accessible?

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

Quite simply, River Cruising is my passion, my favourite type of cruise. i have been lucky enough to do five river cruises to date and the next one can’t come soon enough. Top of my river cruising bucket list has to be the Mekong, gliding through Vietnam and Cambodia – one day I hope!You would think that river cruising would be perfect for people with limited mobility, smaller ships with less passengers on, only three decks etc, but is river cruising really ideal for wheelchair an...
