Disney Cruise - From Newborns To Grannies
There are all kinds of ways of cruises on the market but the Disney cruise is truly unique for it doesn't just cater to children and adults – from newborns to grannies there is a place on a Disney cruise.
Disney is the only fleet that has a nursery for infants and toddlers ranging in age from 12 weeks to 3 years. So after the birth of the baby you can take that well deserved, relaxing vacation, and know that you baby is in good hands when you take some time for you.
One of the famous Disney cruise nurseries is the Flounder's Reef Nursery which is well equipped and has well trained staff that you can feel comfortable leaving your baby or toddler in their care.
It has been almost ten years since Disney Cruise line launched their first ship. Even back then they recognized the need for childcare for the younger children allowing for a full family vacation from the very youngest child to the older children, and of course the adults. But demand was so high they had to add the Flounder's Reef Nursery only two years later. And today they continue to include these terrific facilities on their new Disney cruise line.
The key to the Flounder's Reef Nursery is the reservation system. The minute you've boarded head up the nursery and reserve for your little one. They are very careful to not overcrowd the nursery so their may be the occasional night when you just can't get in. There are never more than four infants ever assigned to one counselor and they prefer the ration to be lower than that. With toddlers it's six to one.
Your children will be in a safe and caring environment, which means that you can enjoy a night out without having to worry. Perhaps a romantic dinner at Palo is in the your cards. Or maybe you'd like to spend a little more time with the older children.
The sleep room has eight cribs, 30 toddler mats, and two strollers. The playroom is filled with age appropriate toys and of course a full selection of Walt Disney movies.
They also offer free family time in the nursery for a couple of hours each day. Just bring yourself and your tot and you can have so quality playtime.
But wait – what about the children that are a little older? Great news – deck five is Disney's floating magical center. There is the Oceaneer Club for kids' age 3 to 8, or the Oceaneer Lab fro kids age 9 to 12. So when the kids get bored of hanging around with mom and dad they've got their very own deck. It's safe and supervised, and it give parents and children their own time to enjoy.
The Disney cruise lines sail to many different locations so whether you are cruising to the Caribbean or spending a little time along the Florida coast from newborn to granny your Disney cruise is going to a vacation you won't forget.
