Default toddler tips

we are going on our cruise on Oct. 2nd with our 2.5 year old son.
I am debating if we should go and buy our son a lifevest of his own and bring it with, also my son is lactose intolerant and i was curious if they have soy milk on board for my son to drink or if we should just bring our own.

any other tips on bringing a toddler would be greatly apprecated
big thanks before hand=)

They provide life vests for children on the ship in case of emergency, but if you are gonna be swimmnig alot then you may want to buy one. Try calling your travel agent or contact carnival on the soy milk. Did you tell them about special dietary needs when you booked? I would think they probally have it, but you may want to take just in case.

Since you have so many choices of where to eat on board, I would suggest bringing your own. If you have a frig in your room, it would be easy to keep it cool. If not, then a small cooler which your steward can keep filled with ice might work best.

we have decided to go and get a lifevest ... they werent that bad priced...

we told our TA about the soy milk, and carnival actually called us to find out about it had have it on the boat for us... but we will go out and get some just incase.. in the health food store they actually have ones that are made like juice boxes...
and i believe they wanted to make sure of any allergies...

will the cabin steward take out some of the stuff in the frig for us, so we can put the soy milk in there?

The room fridge is a small dorm style fridge that is empty. I could be wrong but I believe they are only in Catagory 11 and 12 suite's.

We had one in a category 8 on the Carnival Spirit.

They are supposed to provide child-size lifejackets, however, we had a real hard time getting them to actually provide one for my 2 year old niece on our Pride cruise last September. We asked the room steward when we first arrived and she didn't seem to understand what we were talking about (even though she spoke good English). Next, we asked the officer in-charge of our muster station at the life boat drill. He promised to bring us one, but never did. We asked at the Pursor's desk after the life boat drill and they promised to send one up to our cabin, but it took several phone calls and two days for them to actually do it. So my suggestion would be to bring your own.
