We're just over two weeks away from our 7 night Southern Caribbean jaunt on Jewel leaving out of San Juan in early March. MsDig and I will be traveling with our daughter, son in law and 22 month old grandson (currently competently walking and venturing into running). We are in a Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony on deck 9 while they are just the other side of the elevators in a Standard Balcony with an additional Pullman and a pack n play (pnp) has been requested. Little Man currently sleeps in a regular crib and is fairly 'migratory' when he sleeps. The concern that has been voiced is that the pnp might be too confining for him. I called ahead and was told the mattress size in the pnp is just under 36" in length (about 24" wide) while he is a nominal 30" tall. Granted, no one sleeps fully stretched out but given his penchant for wandering in his crib while sleeping, we are concerned that he will be uncomfortably confined, at the minimum and worst case, will have a severe headache! He's tall enough now to climb out of his crib but it hasn't occurred to him yet to try it. I can't come up with a safe way to put a near 2 year old into the upper Pullman berth as he would surely tumble out at some point. I'm wondering if anyone has some insight and/or previous experiences that they or other parents may have had when kids are at the age when a pnp is a bit too confining. Thanks!
We are cruising in July and we're bringing our 16yp DS's 16yo best friend ( he does have a passport). His parents are divorced and both are remarried. I remember reading somewhere here that there might be a Royal Caribbean release form for those of us who will be bringing a minor who isn't our own and that it would need to be notarized. I've searched these boards and cannot seem to find that particular thread again. Can anyone help?
When we sailed on Allure in 2017, we were disappointed that there wasn’t an easy way for the counselors in Adventure Ocean to notify us regarding our son as we weren’t sure how our he would do. They had a few “radios” and we were lucky that they weren’t all gone the first time. Another time, the counselor acted strange and said they couldn’t give them out. We kept going back to check on him every 30 minutes which wasn’t relaxing at all. We are cruising in 2020 and we now wonder if there is a system in place for parental notification. TIA!
