Hi I am taking a 14 month old on ncl this summer. been taking my daughter since she was 3. as fsr as I am aware all childcare starts at 2 years (can't wait!)till then no timeout for us.
Royal Carribean the best, try Navigator of Independence of the Seas. Superb childcare facilities, lots of activities and excellent choice of food, Children allowed in pool. We have children and sailed with Princess before, but after RC would never go on another cruise liner.
We have cruised with our children - now teenagers since the eldest was five months old. P & O are excellent and the nursery facilities very good.
I Wade - Chesterfiel.
P & O cruises- Oriana
Caters for young children-has seperate children pool, creche and night nursery
Would highly recommend that ship
Try P&O even though we have no young children, we have seen that the facilities for young children are great. On Oriana there is a swimming pool, exclusivly for families and there is a nursery and creche on board as far as I am awar.
WE WENT ON Ocean Village in February and they seemed to have excellent baby care facilities with a professionally staffed creche. you can get all of details from their website . Our 14 month old baby grand daughter is on OCEAN VILLAGE with mum and dad at the moment. They have a deck area at the back of the ship reserved for young ones and parents with their own paddling pool.
I've just been on Ventura and the baby/toddler facilities looked excellent. They also have an outdoor toddler playarea and pool. The baby room looked nice and spacious too. I think the best thing to do is to have a good look on all the ships' websites.
Thomson Cruises have a kids zone and children are allowed in the pools as well.
I am taking my baby on royal carribean cruise in july she will be 10 months. - i have cruised before with them so know that they do cater for children. however they only offer a baby sitting service from the age of 12 months - so will will miss out on this. however i am confident that we will all have a fab holiday.
We have cruised with P+O and RCI (we also cruised with one other line that was dreadful, but lets keep this positive!) both lines were absolutely fantastic. First time we cruised I was pregnant and my other daughter was 11 - that was on Aurora - Brilliant. We then cruised on Oriana, Navigator of the Seas, Aurora again, Oriana again and then Oriana once more - by now my daughters were 5 and 17 - both had a wonderful time on all ships and we are desperate to sail again.
