. .. is s ie b a B r o f t s Be Disney Cruise Line has the most facilities on board for babies! Women who are pregnant can cruise with Disney Cruise Line up until their 24th week of pregnancy. If your little buddle of joy is already here then they take babies on board from 3 months; which is the lowest age any cruise line will accept infants.

Bottles & Food Not only are bottle warmers available for babies, but so are bottle sterilisers upon request so you don’t have to bring your own! If your little one is onto solids then fruits and vegetables can be blended to make suitable meals for the infants on board the ship. Highchairs are also available upon request for your baby’s meal times to make feeding easier.

Facilities for Babies There’s an on board nursery for a small charge where your baby can be looked after by highly trained staff so you can enjoy some peace and quiet. Also, babysitting services are available on board so if you want to go to the spa together or have a romantic meal for two of an evening then you can take advantage of this fantastic service. There are plenty of activities for babies on board in the nursery and also your child can use the fountain play area and the children’s Mickey pool.

Baby Essentials You will most likely have all of your baby essentials with you, but if you’ve forgotten something or you run out then don’t worry as the on board shop stocks Huggies nappies, formula, nappy cream, baby suncream and other baby essentials for you to purchase should you run out. All-in-all Disney have everything you will need as a parent for your child – so relax and enjoy your cruise holiday!
