The nurseries are available on some of the RCCL ships for children that are too young for the children's programs. You can reserve nursery time--my understanding is that everyone is able to book a certain amount of time at the beginning of the cruise and you can then book additional time later if there if time still available. Children are dropped off at the nursery for their reserved times and are watched by the child care staff. I've read that there are cribs, toys, videos. I've also read that parents are given phones that work on the ship so you can be contacted if needed. There is a fee for this service ($8 per hour last time I heard).
We plan to use this one night during our upcoming Allure cruise for DD who is 2. We will be traveling with quite a few family members & friends who have offered to babysit, but I think she'd like the experience so we will probably do it the evening that we all go to Chops.
