Thank you so much!
Yes, we are planning to take the bus, especially since I just added my nephew on the trip and that makes 7 of us. (starts sweating and avoiding the credit card)
I think I need to buy a new stroller. The umbrella stroller does not recline and the Bugaboo bee does not fold easily. (drops head on desk and groans but doesn't look at the credit card)
NOOOO!!!! The bee is PERFECT for a cruise ship!!!! I actually didn't know about this stroller and watched a video the other night when I saw your previous post. It is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT-trust me.
I don't have experience with the bus lines, but cruisinmomma is a wealth of info and she would not give bad advice-it just sounds like you need one that folds down to a relatively compact size which yours does for sure. The fact that it doesn't fold "easily" isn't an issue-just as long as it folds. You don't need a car seat if you are doing the buses. Also, if you want to be safe, buy a $15 umbrella stroller at Walmart or Target and check that through just in case you can't get on the buses with the Bee...it sounds like you won't have an issue though so I would just bring the bee.
You don't need packing tape. The only things you "need" are diapers/wipes, bottles/sippy cups, a bottle brush, and lotions (diaper rash ointment) and potions (tylenol/benadryl etc), and a baby blanket! And sunscreen! And some clothes, of course,-but baby clothes are small. Bring some socks, pants and sweaters/cardigans-it is cold in the ship. With all this stuff you will be set. And the duck tub and a beach pail-but it sounds like you have that covered already
. It sounds like a lot but really you can pack everything you will need for your child in one large suitcase.
Is this your first cruise?
