I would think a small child very easily could pinch an arm or leg in a small gap. I thought the cribs used on the ships were smaller, soft sided collapsible ones. If Carnival can put a cot in a cabin for a fifth passenger, then I think NCL can put a collapsible crib in a cabin. Space may be tight at night but it's put away during day. I would think it's much safer than the other alternatives.

They usually use small "pack n play" style collapsible cribs which maybe are 2x3 feet. I believe it is something that you need to request before you get to the ship, as in when you book. But your agent can still arrange for it. When we cruised with our son at around 2 years of age we got a triple cabin and kept the beds split. Our son got one bed to himself and I used the pulldown bunk.

Is there any rental car drop of location at port? I am flying from Toronto on 26th and planning to rent a car at airport and to drop it at Miami port on 27th.
Thanks

Not anymore. However the larger companies have offices near the port and usually will shuttle you to the pier. You need to check with the particular rental car company you will be using.

Thanks Richard & Mary,LisaP, Richard & Mary, Cruise Fanatic Moderator and Dave Beers.
The advices really helpful for me.
I requested "pack n play" by e-mail (Guests with Special Needs:accessdesk@ncl.com ) and I got the response for it.
But I've still wanted to know, should I tip for room cleaner each time?

You will be charged $12.00 per day per person for all the tips for all crew members. That's $36.00 per day (assuming 3 passengers in the room age 3 or higher).....times the number of days. This charge will be added to your bill that you recieve at the end of the cruise.

The $12.00 per day charge covers the room stewards, waiters, waitresses, evrybody that delivers service. It does not include automatic tips of 15% on each beverage that you order, either soda. mixed drinks, or beer. Coffee, iced tea, water is of course free, unless you stop at the Java Cafe for a premium blend, latte coffee.

Hope this helps. It's always good to know what your up against as far as charges before the cruise.

(If a child is from 6 months to 2 years, you will not be charged).

If you use the bed for your 2 year old....just ask the cabin steward for a mattress pad, and you will have no problems with any split in the bed. There is no way anyone could fall between the split of the bed.

I seriously doubt any dangerous situations have been reported where a passenger has fallen between the split of the beds.
That's not the cause of infant/toddler deaths when sleeping in an adult bed. Consider the following, which you can find if you google the topic:

"The main causes for suffocation in adult beds were getting wedged between the bed and the wall, stifled by soft bedding, or overlying, which is when an adult lies on top of the baby, the study reports.

"Babies lack the motor skills to deal with environmental risks. They can't roll over or push things off their face," Kemp says."

"Babies can suffocate when...

•Sleeping with adults or other children
who may roll over on baby

•Slipping off the chest of a sleeping adult
and getting trapped between the adult
and bedding or sofa cushions

•Sleeping on a soft surface like a pillow,
pillow top mattress,memory foam,
sheep skin or comforter."

I make the same recommendations as Lisa, a crib or sleeping bag, depending on the age and ability of the child.

Kei, no need to tip each time. Glad to hear you got the pack-n-play, that's great! Hope you have a fantastic cruise. The Sky was great and the crew was fantastic. Here's hoping for picture perfect weather! Bon Voyage
