The Best Lines for Cruisers of Any Ageby Fran Golden | March 10, 2016
Mommy and Daddy need some alone time? Many cruise line kids clubs don't accept babies and toddlers — and some won't take small children if they're still in diapers. Sure, some of these ships have in-cabin babysitting or special hours in the playroom dedicated to parent-supervised play for toddlers, but if you want substantial grown-up alone time you're going to want to pick a ship with a proper nursery, where your little one can play with toys, and maybe take a nap.
Great Choices: On Disney Cruise Line ships, babies and toddlers can romp around a colorful nursery decked out with an "It's a Small World" or "The Little Mermaid" theme. On Royal Caribbean ships, the Royal Babies & Tots program is designed specifically for children from six months to three years old, as is the Guppies Nursery on Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Escape.
