    Doing 3day cruise on Dream while on maternity leave with just my new baby, for bonding and recovery. Baby will only be 1-2mths old at time. When & how many hours/per day should I schedule nursey time? For dinners & spa time. Also what are the diner

    Brandie, welcome aboard! Congratulations on the upcoming addition to your family! I don't blame you for wanting to start out your time together with your new little one by including Disney.

    Unfortunately, Disney Cruise Line maintains that babies must be at least 12 weeks or older to come aboard the ships. You can read their infant policy on the website. This is for everyone's safety.

    However, I do hope that once your little one is a bit older, you will consider sailing with Disney Cruise Line. The nurseries onboard the ships are amazing spots for the babies to interact with other little ones, counselors and even some Disney characters. You're right that the nursery time must be pre-booked, and it's a good idea to do that before getting onboard, as the time slots fill up. 

    Next time you sail, when your baby is old enough, be sure to sneak away for dinner at the Adults-Exclusive restaurants Palo or Remy. Spa time is a must as well, especially for a new mom! The Vista or Senses Spa's Rainforest Room offers aromatherapy showers, saunas, steam rooms and an amazingly relaxing atmosphere. Of course, you could always book a massage while you're there too.

    Good luck with the arrival of your newest family member, and I do hope you decide to cruise with Disney once he or she is old enough!
