Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas - Second cruise line with a nursery room

When it comes to cruising you may not see a large number of babies on board and there is a reason for that.  Cruising with a baby can make it difficult to enjoy your fine dining, live shows, lounging by the pool and other adult activites, especially when you don't have other means of babysitting.  But cruise lines are working towards making cruising more family friendly for parents with babies.

Royal Caribbean has launched their newest ship "Oasis of the Seas" (Worlds largest cruise ship) and along with their other wonderful grade school and teen programs they now have a Nursery for babies and toddlers ages 6-36months.  The Royal Babies and Royal Tots clubs are staffed with trained proffesionals and is sponsored with great activities by Fisher Price and Crayola.  Take a look at some great pictures of their playrooms here. The only thing to note is that there is an $8/hr charge, unlike their other school age programs which are FREE!  The first cruise line to have an onboard nursery was Disney Cruise Lines.

If your planning to take your baby on a cruise, remember to check with the cruise line first. All cruise lines have different age limits for allowing babies to cruise and some do not allow them until they are 9-12 months old. ShareThis
