Nope, no go.

Use of the Pools:

Due to United States Public Health (USPH) Regulations, we do not allow children in diapers or those not toilet-trained in the pools.

Don't know where I saw this post before but a really good recommendation was to bring one of those little blow up pools that you can use out of the way and let the baby "swim" in it without getting dirty looks or literally thrown out of the pool by security.

thanks for the info. Bringing a small inflatable pool might be a good idea.

Default Cruise pools different from a "community pool"

Hi..most cruise pools, Carnival included, are salt water...

some YMCA or community pools have baby pools, heavily chlorinated, filtered...the ship's pools are NOT set up for this

one accident and the ship has to clear the pool, shock it and it is closed for the day...I have seen ship workers tell parent to take a baby out of a hot tub and I was glad to see it

cause this really could be dangerous for everyone, e coli can kill, there was a water park in Atlanta Georgia where a little girl died due to infection from fecal material ...very scary..many others sickened by it

Some people bring a small blow up pool for their balcony or a little yellow duckie "tub" to fill ....maybe tip a staff member to help you with this ??

Thanks for being an understanding and caring parent and keeping the pools safe for everyone

I think that is a very immature thing to say , this parent was just asking and making preparations in advance. As a parent of two children, one that is potty trained and one that isn't I can see make arrangements in advance so that the whole family can enjoy the trip.

I think that was ment as a joke. It was just taken out of context. Carla

I don't want to swim in whatever floats out of that diaper. Sorry! I just don't, but apparently the Canadians don't mind!

It's not that we don't mind, we just like to treat everyone the same. It's not like we would throw them in the pool with nothing on.

Hightower I don't think they allow swim diapers but the small blow up pool is a great idea. As in most community type pools that allow them (many here in FL) if there is an accident, the pool gets closed for the day, so it may be best to take that posters suggestion about the blow up pool. Many people would consider you very considerate and applaud you for you ingenuity!

On another board this was recently discussed. I suggested that the poster bring an inflatable pool, someone else stated that they had done that and then given it to "Club Carnival" who planned on using it to fill with balls or a ring toss game...they were very thankful for the contribution. As others have stated onboard pools are not chlorinated which most first timers don't realize.....so let's be kind. I think it was wonderful of the OP to think to ask vs just showing up and assuming her child would be allowed to swim. Not only would the baby not be allowed but he would then be disappointed, not fair for a little one.

Oh, btw...the person on the other board said they just emptied the little pool by dumping it into the drain on the side of the deck....that's what the staff had her do, told her a lot worse went down there at night....ie...puking drunks!!!

While on the subject but a little off topic, why is no one concerned about the hundreds of adults and kids who may pee in the pool! Is it because we can't see it that we accept it! but one piece of doody shuts the pool down for the day, people run screaming jumping overboard, the coast guard gets called in, they fly flags at half staff, the military gets put on alert, the terror attack rating goes up one level and the boat gets a f-15 fighter jet escort to port. Why?

The blow up pool can also be used in the cabin shower to bathe little ones who are too young for a shower without a tub.

Rescuedad and all, I always thought the same thing but it was explained to me that the clorine kills anything from urine but doesn't work on fecal matter, therefore is much more dangerous to everyone's health.

Urine is simply sterile, and fecal matter is not.

First of all the OP was just asking a question BEFORE she traveled and this is a good thing if you don't know what's acceptable. Secondly urine is NOT sterile! It's only sterile for YOU if it's your own. Urine can and does contasin viruses especially HIV and Hep!

"Urine is sterile the second it is expelled from a human. Therefore fresh urine can be used to clean wounds in emergencies, when no alternatives are available. Urine only becomes contaminated when it has been standing for a time

When we went on our last cruise on Oct.06(Victory), they had closed a hot tub due to chlorine level being to high. Thats what the sign said and you could smell it! And I do home daycare and take first aid every three years and they tell us to use bleach 10 to 1 to clean up poop and pee. So I don't understand why it wouldn't work in a pool. (saying the pool uses chlorine!)

Hightower,take 2 small inflatable(in case one gets a hole in it) blow up pools that you can buy at kmart,or walmart,and pack them in your luggage,and when you go to the pool blow it up,and have your child play in it right next to you as you lounge(read) simple.....just dip something(cup,bar pitcher) into the Lido pool to fill it up....do this everyday,and your child will love it....just my two cents

It is also unsafe to swim in a pool with a clorine level higher than 3 to 4 PPM.
