    I am wondering about cruising with an infant that is 6 months old. Don't have a specific sailing/itinerary as yet but the date will be for January/February 2022. I'd like to know about the rates for the infant. Will they just pay the taxes?

    Ahoy Jason!

    Planning on starting 2022 out right with a Disney cruise I see. First up, you will be welcoming a new "baby on board"...and then taking your baby literally onboard with Captain Mickey! Since you haven’t chosen an itinerary yet but are decided on January or February, I highly recommend either a Star Wars Day at Sea or Marvel Day at Sea itinerary if you are a fan of those franchises. 

    On the Disney Cruise Line website, your search begins by using the “Find a Cruise” tab under the Plan a Cruise header. Select January and February 2022 as the potential dates for your cruise. Then, enter the number in your travel party. When you choose child, it will ask you the Guest’s age, which you will say infant. The website will then generate a list of all cruises available. 

    Once you select a specific itinerary for viewing, narrow your search by stateroom category (Inside, Oceanview, Verandah, or Concierge) and the site will have you pick a specific stateroom. Disney Cruise Line will then list a price. You can then click on the Rate Details for more information. Try this for several sailings to compare the prices.

    When I did these steps online to see what popped up, the rate always includes a small amount for a child, which was listed separately from taxes, fees, and port expenses. So from that I can infer that there is a cruise fare for an infant traveling. The actual amount varies depending on the itinerary selected. 

    As you are already aware, Guests on Disney Cruise Line have to be at least 6 months old on the day of sailing, and for Transatlantic, Panama Canal or Hawaii cruises, your child would have to be at least one year old to sail. So just make sure you only select itineraries that meet these criteria.  

    Good news: Disney Cruise Line makes traveling with little ones a snap with complimentary diaper disposal units, bottle warmers, bottle sterilizers, cribs, and playpens (available upon request). Since these items are in limited supply, I would request them as soon as you board the ship at Guest Services (Deck 3, Midship).

    Drop us a message in a bottle if you think of any other questions, Jason. All of us here at planDisney are happy to help. Wishing you a joyful experience as you welcome your little one to the magic of Disney cruising!
