(2) Do I ask the head server?

(3) What can I ask for? Carrots pureed? Peaches?

(4) Do I order the night before for the entire next day (as I would allergy foods)?

(5) Does room service provide pureed food? Or strictly the dining room?

(6) Are bottle warmers provided for the cabin?

We're cruising Europe so I'll try my best to bring pouches but my luggage space is limited.

Thanks.
Just go to Babys R US and get a food grinder. It's small, portable, and easy to clean.

We traveled in December on the Fantasy with our 9-month-old. Just ask your head server, and the dining room can puree anything your child likes. It takes less time if you tell your server the night before what you want for the following evening. They give you A LOT of puree (like an entire soup bowl), so I brought some "take and toss" containers for leftovers and kept them in the fridge in our room to use for lunch (or breakfast) the next day.

Guest services will provide bottle warmers, bottle sterilizers, a diaper genie, and distilled water for free.

Have a fun trip!!!

Ok, the pp did not ask what is best for her child or what she should be doing. She asked if DCL will provide pureed baby food. I shall answer that question:

YES! In the dining room, on the first night, you may have to wait a small amount of time because they won't know you want it until you ask for it. After that, the servers ask what you want for the next nights dinner. You tell them just what you want, and it will be ready. Like the pp mentioned, it is served in a soup bowl, so the quantity is MASSIVE! But, I would ask for chicken and greenbeans, or turkey and carrots, or beef and broccoli, and it would look just like regular baby food! It was awesome. My son ate better on the cruise than he ever did! I have no idea if room service would deliver because he really was only eating breakfast and dinner at the time. And for breakfast, the oatmeal packets were wonderful, as were tiny bits of the canned fruits they served.

Thank you thank you thank you! Exactly the info I was looking for.

Dumb question on the chicken & green beans, turkey & carrots. Do they just water blanch this? It's not the stuff off the kids' menu right? I'd think that'd be too greasy/salty for the baby....but just want to be sure.

And yea, the entire 1st page lecturing me on homemade foods/food grinders was tiring. I make baby food at home, but I can't on this particular trip. (Typically, we use our DVC just to have a kitchen for my kids when I'm on vacation.) Get over it people.

Thank you for this info! I had no idea they also provide distilled water. I'll ask for this. Last time we were pouring bottled water into the sterilizer. Duh...kinda expensive

Just a quick note, the water onboard (from all souces: drink station, preparing food, making ice, out of the tap in your room) is processed the same way bottled water is (reverse osmosis and filtered). It's really good.

Hey, Are you Mermaid from MP? Did not realize you were going on a cruise too. Hard to believe M is 2.5 and your little one is 11 months. Hi from Siggy.

I didn't ask how it was prepared, so I have NO idea! All I know is that my normally very fussy eater ate like a champ on that cruise! I assume that the meats were baked or broiled, and certainly not ground up chicken fingers, but I really have NO idea! I was just pleased he ate well!

There are lots of foods that you can order that are naturally soft. Baked potato, mash soft fruits with a fork.(pear, watermelon, mango) I always find that chicken noodle soup can be fork mashed and works really well. Plus, there is oatmeal, etc. If you are doing more than whole foods by then, pancakes are super soft, scrambled eggs.

Thanks! Chicken noodle soup sounds like a great idea.

Thanks for posting this. We'll be traveling with a 12 month old in October and I was wondering the same thing.

Question - what are your plans for breakfast and lunches? And will you be bringing snack items along (i.e. Cheerios, yogurt bites, etc.)? TIA.

Also - for BF babies who will be staying in the nursery at least one of the evenings, are you leaving a bottle? If so, will you be carrying a hand pump? I'm trying to decide if I'll need one.
