How to Pick the Best Ship for Babyby John Roberts | October 30, 2016
Taking a cruise with a baby can be a surprisingly low-stress family vacation. Think about It: you only have to unpack and re-pack once, so there's no searching for lost baby socks and toys as you hop from hotel to hotel. Restaurants are just a stroll away so you don't have to worry about getting a squirmy little one in and out of a car seat for every meal. And, if you have been "blessed" with a very early-riser, you can head to your balcony or up on deck each morning to admire the sunrise together.
That, said, picking the right ship is key when you are traveling with a baby. Some ships are more baby- and toddler-friendly than others, with amenities that make traveling with your little one a breeze — and give you the opportunity to have some much treasured grown-up time on your vacation. Read on for what to keep in mind when looking for a baby-friendly cruise ship.
