  • Find a tiny blow up pool. They sell little ones to travel with so you can give the baby a bath. Cruise ships usually only have showers. I wouldn't put my baby in a bathtub outside our home, Too many germs. Also bring a bottle of lysol cleaner to clean the bathroom prior to use & antibacterial wipes too. I'm a clean nut as you can see.

  • which cruise line? bring formula and food, they don't supply it. do not run out of Diapers either. You can buy more in ports if you need to, but the ship will be expensive. A porta crib would be needed too. You can find lots more answers at www.cruisecritic.com

  • Carnival is the cruise line. I was wondering if I should bring the walker. Since he started crawling he doesn't like to stay in one spot. Like in a pack n play for example. We have a suite so I'm guessing there might be enough room for it. Any suggestions??

  • I am sure you know your baby is allowed but one cruise line (don't remember now) told me they didn't accept kids until age two.
