There’s a special joy in introducing our children to new destinations, people, and experiences; being there to see a whole new world open up in front of them. That’s why we do the family vacation- to treasure every moment with them.
Well, okay, maybe not EVERY moment. Even adults need some time to play… so in addition to Royal Caribbean’s children’s programs and facilities, there’s one more very important thing you should know about: Babysitting Services. There are different options, depending on what you’re comfortable with as a parent, so enjoy at least one nice, kid-free dinner or entertainment event while on board. It’s your vacation too!
Here’s what the line offers:
Group Sitting and In-Stateroom Baby-Sitting Services
Late Night Party Zone – Group sitting is available from 10:00 pm to 2:00 am in the Adventure Ocean center. The cost for this service is $6/hour per child. Children attending must be at least 3 years old and fully toilet trained – no diapers or pull-ups allowed.
Our Sitters at Sea program is available through the Guest Relations Desk and must be booked at least 24 hours in advance.
A Royal Caribbean staff-member will arrive equipped with Fisher-Price toys and Mattel games, and engage and entertain the young cruisers until their parents return. Children must be at least one year old.
Upon their return, parents will be presented a log of the child’s activities with the babysitter, including books read, games enjoyed, food consumed, and when the child was put to bed.
The charge is $19 per hour for up to three children within the same family. There is a two-hour minimum requirement.
