Flotation Devices

We will be cruising on the Fantasy in July with our grandchildren who will be 6, 3, and 15 months at the time. Their mothers are wondering if DCL will allow them to wear Coast Guard approved life jackets while in the pool and on Castaway Cay while playing in the ocean. Has anyone here had any experience with this? TIA!

This is from the DCL website:

The following items are permitted but with the following restrictions:
•Coast Guard approved personal flotation devices (PFDs) and flotation sewn into the bathing suit for safety. However, recreational floating devices such as floats, rafts and fun noodles cannot be brought on board and are not permitted in the pools or on Castaway Cay.

A heads up for the 15 month old, he/she won't be allowed in the pools on the Fantasy even with a swim diaper. Children have to be potty trained to swim in the pools. The Fantasy does have Nemo's Reef for those in swim diapers, it's a splash area that parents can take their little ones into. It looks like alot of fun and personally I can't wait to take my little one in there in October.

I don't have an answer on the life jackets.

I found the pools on the fantasy were so busy i didn't even want my 11 year olds in them. They are pretty small from what i imagined and there were very big adults jumping in where small children were swimming. Unless we were going at the popular times we tried twice and then found other things to do. The splash pads are really neat!!
