Ah, you might want to check Carnival's rules while you still can cancel and get some of your money back. Most cruise lines don't allow infants aboard ship until they are six months old, and there's no refund if they turn you away at the pier

I'm not aware of any cruise line that provides cribs. The best answer probably one of those travel cribs that doubles as a playpen during the daytime.

I also recommend a larger than standard cabin, or perhaps a minisuite, if you are taking a travel crib. Standard cabins do not have much room, so you'll be struggling to climb over it or to squeeze by it when you have it opened.

Swim diapers are unsanitary. Please do not put your child in a pool or hot tub frequented by others if they are not potty trained. E-coli is an ugly thing, if you've ever had it. It's heartbreaking if your child gets it. Ditto for someone else's child....

"Swimmies" are okay in the ocean.

From Carnival's website (FAQ's)

Can I sail with my infant?

Minimum age for sailing will be generally 6 months and 12 months for Transatlantic, Hawaii and South American cruises. This is a company policy which takes into consideration the safety and comfort of the infant as well as the other guests. Carnival has fully researched the legality of the policy and it is not discriminatory and does not violate any applicable law. Carnival will not make exceptions and do not allow for the signing of waivers or releases to make an exception to the policy.

What can I rent on board?

The following services are available for rental and must be arranged for by the guest once on board:

Motorola Radios
Baby Strollers
Golf Equipment

Rental fees may be obtained aboard your "Fun Ship."

I checked with Carnival and the new rule about infants being 6 months started Jan. so we are grandfathered in with our baby since we booked in Oct. I also got all the information on cribs, renting swings, bouncing seats, strollers, etc. for anyone who needs information. You can always just call Carnival. Thanks for tips. Looking forward to the cruise, it's my fourth so I'm excited!
Also anyone who needs to know the passport info changed, now you don't need one until June of next year not this year.
