I hope it is correct - who would want to swim in faecal matter from an unpotty trained child - I am surprised you have to ask!

I assume that you do not have children and never go to the public swimming baths. you do not swim in faecial matter - there are such things such as Swim up nappies which are specifically designed for children who are not potty trained and are considerably more hygienic than allowing children (of all ages) to wee etc in the pools - which happens and you will know that it does. The reason I asked the question was to enquire if the ruling is strict or if children are allowed in the pool in the specifically designed swim up nappies. I am a parent who is aware of her responsiblities - I am surprised and disappointed with your response - it is hardly constructive and a waste of time.

Actually, we do have children and also are aware of responsibilities. However we also have consideration for other people, and a cruise ship is the last place that you want bacteria and bodily fluids to risk causing infection to others. That is why ships are completely strict about the use of hand sanitisers and good hygiene. Please also see the comment above about the regulations from a,n. This is an open website for comment - if you are not happy with people commenting on your question, then the answer is simple - don't post a question! As for being surprised and disappointed with my response - tough!

Totally agree Marshall, I had the misfortune to see a so called 'swim up pant' come apart in a pool... I won't say anymore... leave it to your imagination .

Thanks Mike but sorry about your unfortunate experience. As "cantes" of Sunderland is specifically asking about Royal Caribbean and Brilliance of the Seas, it states on in the General Information section of Royal Caribbean's brochure "Due to US Health Regulations, young children in nappies/pull ups (including "swim-safe" varieties) MAY NOT use the pools/whirlpools". It also says "The health and safety of our guests is our number one priority". Lastly it says "all children participating in children's programmes must be toilet trained". I think they are making the point that they don't want accidential spillages of faeces or urine where it can come in contact with others! Perhaps she should read the booking conditions/information before booking!

RCI are pretty strict on not allowing incontinent youngsters in the main swimming pools with good reason but I am not sure about the children's splash pool, I just assume the same would apply. ... Neil.

Freedom & Liberty have a 'baby splash zone'. These are the only 2 RCI ships that allow 'untrained' youngsters to 'swim' Regards Wilba.

No, of course children who are not potty-trained are not allowed in the pools.

Hawaii FIVE O!!!!!

By Drew Lazarus

Drew Lazarus's blog

Hey! Back again with some more world cruise ports and pics! I think the shot above (the whale breaching the ocean) says it all. So whilst on tender duty in Lahaina , assisting passengers get ashore, I was fortunate enough to witness this through a tender boat window. I still look at the picture and think WOW!!! This was of course the high light of the day for me. There were a number of many different varieties of whales that were not shy and for want of a better word were parading around the...
