I don't know if it's ok for me to post this but its a general policy paragraph being widely distributed, not copywrited information...

Effective immediately there will be a new policy in effect for people
traveling with infants and women who are pregnant for all Royal Caribbean
International®, Celebrity® and Azamara sailings.
Infants sailing on a cruise must be at least 6 months old as of the first
day of the cruise/cruisetour. However, for Transatlantic, Transpacific,
Hawaii, select South American cruises/cruisetours and other selected
cruises/cruisetours, the infant (as of the first day of the
cruise/cruisetour) must be at least 12 months old.
Also, Azamara Cruises, Celebrity Cruises® and Royal Caribbean
International® cannot accept guests who will have entered their 24th week
of pregnancy by the beginning of, or at any time during, the cruise or

Cheers, Neil

Thanks for the info, Neil. I wish they would step it more than 6 mos. This rule still would not have prevented the Cortez fiasco.

I agree with you 100% but it's better than the old, no minimum age policy. And they've pushed the pregnancy rule out 1 add'l week from the old policy. Isn't the most dangerous time frame for pregnant women the first tri-mester? If that's true why is that the only time frame allowed on most cruiselines?

Cheers, Neil

I cruised Jan 25 of 1994 and my youngest was born April 10. I tried to cancel--it was booked before I knew I would feel sick the entire 9 months! RCCL would not release us, even with a signed letter from my Dr. Times have changed! (by the way, we had a great time, everyone on staff bent over backwards to make sure I had everything I needed--more than they usually do! and I did get more nauseated than usual and the ship's doctor gave me a shot after letting me read his PDR on the medication that it was safe for pregnancy that had me feeling pretty great for the week!)

I am not sure if it is copyrighted or not. Sometimes paragraphs can be copyrighted under general copyright protections. A good rule of thumb regarding this if in doubt, is to put the information in your own words, or post a link to the information. Just wanted to pass along some friendly advice about it.

Getting back to the topic, CCL has had a very simular policy in place about pregnancy and infants for a long while. I agree with the good Dr. about making the age limit more than 6 months for infants. I don't know if this is true, or even legit about the pregnancy time frame. I read somewhere though that some of it had to do with births at sea, and citizenship concerns.

Here is a link to RCCL's Infant Policy.
