Hi there. Wondering if we should bring a stroller for our infant (will be 10 months old) on our upcoming cruise. I saw pictures of the pier and it looks like it's quite a walk from the gangway to the island. Is it a good idea to bring a stroller? Are there paved walkways or is it just sand? TIA!

We bring our stroller on cruises. My daughter is a champ stroller sleeper so it allows us to enjoy a quiet meal with her snoozing next to us.

Can't comment on Labadee in particular until we sail next month but a stroller is a foregone conclusion with us. My daughter is just over 2.

Absolutely bring it for Labadee...you'll be so glad you did (preferably an umbrella type with a sunshade) We like our Mountain Buggy Nano..Nice paved walkways and you're correct, it is a long walk and also around the outdoor market area.
