Cruising With A 1 Year Old

Cruising with a 1 year old - everything you need to know before hitting the high-seas with your tot!

Earlier this year, I shared our experience of cruising with a 6 month old. Last month, we took a 4-day cruise to celebrate Ryder turning 1 (and us keeping a tiny human being alive). Today I’m excited to share cruising with a 1 year old. Holy smokes, there is a huge difference between the two age ranges. Especially if your 6 month old is not mobile (like ours was at the time). The other week I shared a free printable check list that you can download that will help you pack for a cruise when traveling with baby or toddler. This will definitely help you if this is the first time your cruising with baby or even first time ever cruising. The cruise ship does have diapers and some baby food but supplies are very limited. I would rather over pack than under pack and be stuck. Especially if your at sea for a few days. No place to run and grab tylenol or a thermometer. You get the point…

This time we cruised on Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas. This is a “freedom” class ship and one of the larger ships in the Royal Caribbean fleet. We loved everything about the larger ship. Let’s talk about the big elephant in the room… the nursery!

Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas Nursery

The nursery on the Liberty of the Seas is so much larger than the nursery on the Enchantment of the Seas (then again the ships are much different in size as well). I loved this nursery and didn’t feel guilty one bit dropping off Ryder. And it helped that we got there a little early and he was able to play with Jon while I filled out all the paper work. Like last time, I can’t stress it enough, if you plan to use the nursery you really need to make a bee-line for the nursery and reserve your time slots. You can reserve up to 15  hours on the first day. So the best thing to do is to reserve your dinner nights first. Then the next morning you can reserve some of your days. That way you are guaranteed dinner time. Of course if eating dinner with your significant other in peace and quiet without any interruptions is not high on your priority list then reserve other times. Prices are still the same. $6 per hour before 5pm and $8 per hour after 5pm. [Continue reading]
