About taking you baby on the cruise...been there and done that...we took our daughter on the destiny at 9 months old...personally it was a nightmare...we never used the pools as they were over ridden with older kids and crowed and down right dirty...yuck. Beware the cabins on Carnival do not have bathtubs or refrigerators and good luck trying to get a refrigerator....that was the last time for us on CCL..the following year we took HAL..what a major difference...the Maasdam is smaller, the cabins much bigger, standard outside cabins come with bathtubs...big plus for kids, and we had a refrigerator for $2.00 per day..worth every penny. We used the pool in the solarium and had no problems....however we vowed not to take a cruise with the kids (we now have new baby boy) until they are walking, out of diapers and eating on their own. To us its just too stressful...we love to cruise but we opted for Beaches resort in Negril...much easier and much more relaxing all around. I sailed on RCCL this summer and kids that are not potty trained are not allowed in the pools even with swimmer diapers on....I'm glad at least one cruise line is doing this and I suspect many more. So we hit the beach so the baby could swim in the calm ocean....we had a blast....hopefully in a year we can all sail together....who knows the baby might be in diapers till he's five....ha.

We took our one year old son on a Carnival Cruise and we had a great time. It was never a nightmare for us, but rather a great family experience. We took our son in the kiddie pool just about every day there and never had a problem. He loved it. I see no reason to ban kids from pools ever. As long as swim diapers are used, what's the problem? As long as you are patient and willing to spend time with your child, you will have no problems on a cruise.

Oh, and the pools were always a comfortable temperature. There were only two occasions when the pools were empty: when were leaving and when we were coming back in to port. Other than that, they were full every time we went past them.
