your baby can not go into the pool so if you want to give your little one a splash then take a blow up pool with you. Plan on carrying all of your baby needs with you. They have some stuff in the shop but not a lot and its expensive. The big baby buggies get jammed up in the hallway when there's a lot of people especially when your trying to go ashore. Take one of those little fold up light jobs. What ever your routine is with the baby now, you'll want to keep that. Perhaps early dining.

Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.

This is an interesting article I'm not sure how up to date it is. It lists the age requirements of each cruise line. I don't know anything about the company was I'm not recommending them. I'm only putting is link on for the information. http://www.vacationstogo.com/preg-infant.cfm Disney was the lowest at 12 weeks. The standard age seems to be 6 months, unless it's Hawaii or a Transatlantic cruise in which case it's 12 months. As Dina said no babies in diapers are allow in the pool. However, the biggest Royal Cruise ships and the Disney ships have water fountains for the ones in diapers.
One part age; three parts liquor!
