You and your husband love to cruise. It is what you did for your honeymoon. You try to take at least minus one cruise each year. But you’ve just had your first baby, and you’re wondering how you are going to cruise with a baby in tow. Let’s get you some important pointers that might help.
- The most important thing is to know your baby. Do they adapt well to change? Are they at all open to trying new foods? Do they need a quiet place to sleep? Do they need it to be dark? Do they play well with others? Knowing these things will help you choose the right cruise for your baby.
- Booking early will be to your advantage. Since the nicer rooms fill up quicker, this will ensure that you get the right room. You will also want to be sure to get the early or flexible dining plan.
- Unless you’re cruising with Disney or are in a suite, you will not be able to count on a tub. you might want to take a little inflatable tub unless baby can do either showers or sponge bath.
- Make sure your cruise has a 24/7 buffet. Or at least a buffet that is opened in the late afternoons. But your baby may surprise you and do well with the long formal dinners. Sometimes babies can be quite social.
