Any advice from parents that sail from New York with a one year old would be greatly appreciated. FYI, I'm taking my mother and other family members may go as well so I think babysitting won't be a problem at all.
Thanks in advance!

. And let me ask, does anyone listen to the no diapers allowed rule?! Every single baby i saw in the kids pool on our ship had a swim diaper on. And then in the big pool there was a kid who was probably about 5-6 yrs old who had a swim diaper on too! My poor boy seemed to be the only one not in the pool because i follow the rules
Thank you all for the tips. I'll definitely need a packing list since there are things I won't remember or know I'll need until I'm there.We were in the same boat as you, but we took our DD on Explorer the day she turned 6 months and had a blast! Not having to fly was much easier, and we were able to pack everything and extras just-in-case.
I'm really considering NCL for July 2013 on the Breakaway. It leaves out of New York and is a brand new ship. Any tips on cruising with Norwegian and babies?
It's during the summer, July 2013 on the Norwegian Breakaway. I think you're right it is Bermuda not the Bahamas. I've sailed Norwegian and Royal Caribbean before but this will be the first time with baby. That new ship is definitely calling me. I wonder what baby amenities are available?Are you sure you'll be three days there? Most likely the ship will be going to different ports -- traveling during the night.
I would hope that someone let security know that that was happening. Like posted it IS A health issue onboard. Ship personal like to stay spot on to avoid any compliance issues. Security probably was not aware of that issue.I don't think some people understand (or maybe, don't care) that one little "accident" would require the crew members to drain the pool, clean up the mess, refill the pool and "shock" the water.
On carnival people point fingers
To the OP - the Breakaway is going to be incredible. And the Explorer is starting to show wear. Until RCI transfers a new ship to Bayonne - I am refusing to do THAT ship. At this point it's a matter of principalShe was beautiful on our trip this past June. In comparison to Freedom & Liberty, shes clean and very well maintained. Don't believe all the CC hype.
