Thanks for the tip about the strollers. Maybe we'll take an umbrella stroller or something small.
We are travelling with 12 family members, so we'll have built in babysitters with the aunts and uncles. I really don't think I'd ever be comfortable leaving my baby (9 months at the time) with a babysitter I don't know really well. I am OK with my 4 year old going to Camp Carnival because she can communicate with us and tell us if she is not comfortable, etc.
Oh - also, thanks for the tip on talking to the pediatrician. Very good idea!
2nd cruise planned - March 2008 - Emerald Princess - Eastern Caribbean
