Anyone know of and have used,Cruises that offer childcare for toddlers?
Were looking to book a cruise and we have 5 kids. We want to take the 3 older girls on excursions but think its to much for two toddlers ages 1 and 2 to do daily.Anyone used and reccomend any cruiselines that offer a “baby camp” or childcare? Thanks!

I don’t know about the others, but Carnival only allows you to leave the children at Camp Carnival on At Sea days.

Most cruise lines look after kids from the age of 3 and older and fully potty-trained.

Disney cruise line has the best childcare. My kids loved it and begged me to take them there 24/7. You can even see what it looks like on the disney cruise website. It is an AWESOME center!

All cruise lines now offer youth activities and “babysitting” in the youth center. However, Disney is the only line that will take children as young as yours. NCL accepts 2 year olds (and they don’t have to be potty trained), the other major lines only take them from 3 years. I don’t know much about Disney, but NCL accepts children in the youth center while parents go ashore, not just on sea days. Most of the major cruise lines do offer this service for a fee.

Travel agents in particular will tell you any cruise line will accept your children, when the reality is quite different. The worst thing is getting onboard and finding that in fact you can’t leave your children in the youth center when you were told you could! Look into Disney due to the ages, but have you thought about leaving the toddlers at home with a family member or friends? Then you know you won’t have any issues! Good luck.

Disney Cruise for sure. It’s the only one that would take infants and toddlers and have late night hours also. Their nursery is very cute and the staff was great. Just got back on 9/9 from a cruise. There is a fee ($ 6 for 1 child per hour + $ 5 for any addtl children) They keep them busy and even have the characters come and visit them while in the nursery.
