Making Your Cruise Reservation
Cruise fares are per person which includes children and infants. When traveling with 2 full fare guests, additional guests in the same stateroom pay a discounted cruise fare. Children less than 2 years of age are not required to extend gratuities.  

Infant Policy
For all cruises (except Transatlantic, Hawaii, TransPacific and South America cruises), infant guests are required to be at least 6 months of age on embarkation day to be eligible to travel. For Transatlantic, Hawaii, Transpacific and South America cruises, infant guests are required to be at least 12 months of age on embarkation day to be eligible to travel.

Baby Food and Formula
We do not carry baby food or formula onboard our ships.

For your baby’s powdered formula, you may bring onboard nursery water or distilled water packed in your carry-on luggage. Distilled water may also be purchased onboard at $3.00 USD per gallon by contacting Room Service.

Food items brought onboard must be pre-packaged, unopened and cannot require any food preparation from the dining staff. Homemade items or pre-cooked foods will not be permitted onboard. All items will need to be stored in the stateroom; we are not able to provide food preparation, refrigeration or storage for personal food or beverage items.  

Breast Milk
If a guest needs to refrigerate breast milk, it is recommended you bring a cooler (no larger than 12" x 12” x 12”) and request ice from your Stateroom Steward. You may also store the breast milk in the refrigerator at the Guest Service Desk.

If breast milk is to be used post-cruise, you must alert the onboard Guest Service Desk so appropriate authorities may be advised.

Breast Feeding Policy
Nursing mothers have the right to breast feed in public or private areas and are not required to cover themselves while doing so.  This policy is consistent with state law in 49 states in the U.S.
