This is my first time cruising with an infant/toddler too but one great tool we used when we took our daughter (10 months old at the time) on vacation last year was a PeaPod travel bed. It's a bed for infants that looks like a little tent. We bought ours on Amazon but I know they are sold other places too. A couple reasons we liked it so well: it's really light - only 7 lbs or so and folds up into a circle about 15 inches in diameter and 3-4 inches tall. If you have to fly to get to your cruise it's nice not to have to lug a pack-n-play along; it's easy to set up and take down so if you want a little more room in your cabin during the day that is nice; it has flaps on each side that can be open or closed if you want less light to come in. I had our daughter try it a couple times at home before we went on our trip and she did great in it. Just a thought... Have a great time!!!
