    Can you make Nemo's Reef Reservations or Oceanear's Club Reservations ahead of time? I can only book my activities 45 days in advance, will I have trouble reserving a spot? Do they get full? Can my kids nap/sleep there?

    Hi, AnnMarie!

    For Flounder's Reef Nursery, you do need to make reservations ahead of time, but you shouldn't have trouble reserving the times you need since you'll more than likely make simultaneous reservations for adult-only bookings such as spa treatments or dining at Palo. Nursery reservations do book up fairly quickly, but sometimes plans change.  Therefore, if you don't get the times you want, check again when you're on board to see if the times have opened up.

    For the Oceaneer's Club or Lab, you can check your kids in online, but you don't have to.  You can wait until you arrive at the port terminal or once you're on board.  It just helps to expedite the process by registering them online.  There are "quiet spots" in the nursery as well as the youth activities clubs for children to wind down or even sleep -- my kids have taken naps in the kids' clubs.  Of course, they have cribs for the babies in the nurseries.

    I hope that helps you.  Let me know if I can help with other questions you have.  Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation.

    Bon voyage,
