Think that cruises aren’t possible with young children?

These days, cruise lines have introduced programs to keep even the fussiest toddler occupied.

For parents that want to take their kids on the ship, but don’t want to run after them, cruises now offer babysitting programs, even for infants.

Royal Caribbean has “Aqua Babies” for kids aged 6 to 18 months, which offers interactive classes such as musical inspiration, babies gymnastics and games, all developed by Fisher-Price experts.

Cunard Ships Queen Mary and Queen Victoria have a nursery and a children’s center supervised by fully trained nannies and youth staff.

However, children must be at least a year old to go there without parental supervision.

Disney Cruises has live shows, character experiences, movies, and much more for kids as young as 12 weeks.

But be aware, on many ships’ babysitting ends at nightfall, so plan accordingly.
