While on the cruise:

  • Make sure that you have received a life jacket for you and your babies. Every corner of the room has a life jacket, but you should ask for a smaller life jacket that suits your babies upon arriving.


  • My best tips to those who whom are with infants/babies are to go on the cruise with low assumptions and be patient because most of the infants/babies are sleepy all the day or nappy, so expect that your infants/babies spent a lot of time in your arms.


  • While your infants/babies were sleeping you could go outside and look for the beautiful sceneries while you are reading books, newspaper or any kind of reading materials.


  • Plan for meals and prepare for it or you could also walk around and look for available foods to eat. Also, while your infant was too young, there are activities for kids that they could play with toys, coloring books, crawl around, and mingle with fellow babies. This could surely amaze and full of fun and excitement for your little ones that they would truly enjoy. You could also bring toys for them to play when they got bored.


  • Feed your infants/babies on time. They could also eat some plain yogurt or missed with baby food fruits.


  • My last piece of advice is to have fun, relax and enjoy the cruise with your infants/babies. Make your vacation and travel full of memories as a family.


Traveling with infants/babies were too difficult, a lot of preparations, a lot of things to bring, and have long patience. But the most important thing about it is that you spend your time, effort, love to your family, and it is priceless. Nothing could replace the memories, laughter’s, and the relationship you build together. Yes, it is tiring, but if you look beyond those things is a family full of love and enjoying every second, every minute, every hour and every moment together.
