Royal Caribbean has just announced they will no longer be offering its private in-room babysitting service, Sitters at Sea.
The cease in service will kick in September 30th 2018 and the decision is said to be a result of not being able to consistently meet the demand for private sitters on every sailing.
“We are sorry for any impact this may have on your vacation. If your sailing departs on or before September 30th and you were planning on using this service, we will happily accommodate your request if sitters are available.
Once onboard, please visit Guest Services regarding availability,” Royal Caribbean stated.
Traditionally, sitters have been available on a first come, first served basis and reservations can only be made by visiting the guest services desk.
Royal Caribbean was one of the last cruise lines to offer in-cabin babysitting, but will still be offering two other programmes for a fee:
“Our kid programmes, Adventure Ocean and Royal Babies & Tots, remain unchanged, and we still offer our “Late Night Party Zone” group sitting by our Adventure Ocean Youth Staff for children between the ages of 3 to 11.
Thank you for understanding. We look forward to having you onboard very soon!” Royal Caribbean clarified in a statement.
