It is a Coast Guard regulation for health reasons. Poop in the pool means it must be evacuated, drained, cleaned, and then refilled. NO EXCEPTIONS. Swim diapers hold poop, they do not contain it. The best analogy is a tea bag: the leaves don't get in the water, but they do steep in it; poop does the same thing and contaminates the water. Taking a non-potty trained child into the pools is going to ruin someone else's vacation. That's why there are splash areas for the little ones. :D

We cruised last month with my 7 month (turned 8 months the last day of the cruise) Twin Grandbabies.
We took their Front to Back Double stroller (Graco Duo Glider) and it fit through the doors just fine. When folded up, it fit nicely inside the closet. Saw another family with a side by side double stroller and the father was commenting to me on how he wished they had brought their similiar one to ours.

The Biggest tip I can offer anyone travelling with baby's is regarding food. The twins were still on purreed food, and my daughter did not have to use any of the jarred food they brought. The dining staff and chef's were more than happy to puree up some of whatever we requested, and would take the requests the night before at dinner for the next day, and have it ready waiting on our table. Same at breakfast The girls had carrots and sweetpotatoe pureed with Chicken, peas and carrots, apple sauce, blue berries, peaches and more, all supplied by DCL
Do take some of their own jarred food from home for perhaps the first day on board and of course pre cruise days, but don't worry about food from there on, as the Servers are more than happy to get them whatever is required

We are planning our first cruise on Wonder in October. We will probably have our 2 yr old sleep on the sofa bed. Does anyone know if bed rails can be used on them? If so, does the ship have them, or do I need to order that from Babies Travel Lite?

They will be provided by the ship. We had our 18 month sleep in the bottom bed (sofa bed) and it worked really well. No worries; a cruise is almost consistently under the motto: "ask and you shall receive". Which is why it is such a great way to travel!

We just got back from our Fantasy cruise with our 8 month old twins. We had a fabulous time! We used the Small World Nursery for dinner time (we had 2nd seating), Palo Brunch, and to give us a little adult time occasionally, and our boys loved the time they spent there. When they saw their favorite cast members in the lobby area, they would reach out for them. Gina in particular was great with them, but I felt comfortable with all of the staff and left glowing comments about them on our comment card. We didn't use our Graco front to back stroller much on the ship, but it did fit through the doors easily. We used our Ergo carriers when we were spending time touring the ship or doing the MidShip Detective Agency game, and that worked really well. We didn't feel like we had enough room for 2 pack and plays in our stateroom, so we had our stateroom hostess set up the bedrail on the sofa bed and used the other pack and play to help block the additional opening. The boys slept great on the makeshift bed, and we felt secure with them there. Overall, it was a great experience and I am glad we did it.

When we checked in at DL, the front desk said they didn't have our package, that it didn't arrive. I called Babies Travel Lite & he called the hotel & sure enough our package was there.
What's Babies Travel Lite?

It shouldn't be so surprising. A non-potty trained baby creates a very unsanitary swimming environment for everyone else. The leakage from the diapers can introduce all kinds of bacteria and viruses into the pool like e-coli making other children and adults very sick, ruining their vacation and their health. I have sometimes seen a few parents who choose to ignore this rule, not caring for the health of others. Their selfishness really upsets me and I make sure that I let a CM know so they can get them out of the pool.

We cruised last summer with our 2 children, who were around the same age as yours. Dress them however they are comfortable! And feel free to bring your baby into dinner in her stroller if she likes to sit in it - or if she is sleepy. Mine fell asleep during meals more than once. 😊

We found that with our 18 month old, that she was happier in the nursery during dinner. "Skirted" around the whole clothes issue entirely.

We CD at home but will be using disposables for the cruise. I do not think anyone will look kindly on using communal washers and dryers to wash your cloth diapers. Not to mention you wont be able to do pre-rinse, extra rinse, etc let alone at different water temps.

Or are you doing a short cruise and just planned to haul all the dirty diaps off with you at the end?

I agree with this. No way I would trust the onboard machines to handle cloth diapers, nor would I want to inflict that on other passengers. Also, I don't do laundry on vacation, period. If I were on a 3-day, I *might* consider staying on cloth and bringing a huge wet bag, but no longer than that. We switch to disposables for cruising.

Jeans are allowed in the dining room.
