    Is there childcare at Scuttle's Cove for children under age 3? Is it free or do we need to reserve time just like on board in the nursery? I'd like to get a massage on the Castaway Cay island but would need childcare during that time. Thanks.

    Carrie, welcome aboard! Castaway Cay is the perfect place to escape for a massage and a little adult-time!

    Scuttles Cove is for children ages three to 12, similar to the Oceaneer's Club and Lab on the ship. It's a really wet, wild and sandy spot for kids in that age group to play the day away on Castaway Cay, and is included in the price of the cruise.

    But it sounds like you have a child under the age of three. If you'd like to make reservations for your little one to have some playtime in the nursery (either It's A Small World on the Dream and Fantasy or Flounder's Reef on the Wonder and Magic), be sure to book that before you set sail as the times do fill up. The hours vary, but they do offer hours during your port stops, whether it be Castaway Cay or another port, when you can check your child in for care while you venture out to explore off the ship. Before you book your massage, check the times that are still available for the nursery and I hope you can match them up.

    Carrie, please let me know if you have any other questions before you set sail! I'm happy to help!
