    Hi, I am traveling on a Disney Cruise to the Bahamas in March. My son will turn 3 five days the end of the cruise. Would he be able to join the Oceaneer lab with his brother who is 6 years old?

    Welcome aboard, Cindy! Next month you're going to be off on a magical adventure at sea with your kids! It is so exciting to plan for a Disney Cruise Line vacation, but even more exciting to set sail!

    Disney Cruise Line's Youth Clubs are so fabulous. The counselors are amazing with kids of all ages, and there are some really fun activities and events that go on in the clubs all day and night! Plus, the spaces in themselves are super cool. I get a bit jealous of all the fun my kids have there! The Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab are the clubs for kids ages three to twelve, and the age restrictions are pretty firm. While your younger son won't be able to stay during secured programming with your older son, he can certainly hang out in the Club and Lab with you or your husband and your six-year old during Open House hours. These Open House hours occur each day and that's the time that parents must stay with their kids in the Club or Lab, and guests of any age can come join in on the fun. There are really fun activities planned for those hours! I love to go to Open House with my kids! The first Open House hours are when you first board the ship, so that's a great time to check out the spaces and chat with the counselors.

    If you would like to sneak away for some adult time in one of the great Adult Exclusive areas onboard or for dinner at Palo or Remy, the adult restaurants onboard, you can book some time for your littlest sailor in It's A Small World Nursery. Everyone gets their own personal fun and later you can enjoy lots of family activities together too! It's the best way to cruise!

    Have fun getting ready to set sail next month, Cindy!
