I'm the family cruise editor here. I will contact Celebrity and try to get answers to your questions. (I'm going out of town in a day so I may not be able to get back to you until late next week. What's the date of your cruise?)
Smooth sailing,

I too am very interested in getting the answer to these questions. We leave on our Celebrity cruise Next Saturday (Feb 8th). We definitely hope to partake in the in room babysitting.

Sorry I'm just getting back to you -- Celebrity took a while to get back to me and I've been out of town and then got sick!

In any case, here goes:
* Celebrity says it's "not hard to get a private babysitter but guests are asked to make request at least 24 hours in advance" at guest services.
* Children must be at least 6 months old for private babysitting.
* Private babysitting is available day or night, providing the request is made at least 24 hours in advance. Group babysitting via the Celebrity Youth Program, for kids ages 3-12, is from noon to 2 p.m. on port days and during the evening "slumber parties" from 10 p.m. to 1a.m. nightly, for an hourly fee of $6/hour/child.
*The cost of private babysitting is $8/hour per child, with no more than two kids per babysitter. All babysitting fees may be paid only via the shipboard account since cash is not accepted.

I hope this helps. I'd love to hear how you and your children liked Celebrity upon your return!

Smooth sailing,
Luisa Frey Gaynor

Thanks for posting!

We are leaving day after tomorrow for Florida. I am getting excited (nervous about packing though).

Have a great cruise Erika. And start packing now -- planning for a week's worth of diapers, etc. for a baby/toddler takes some concentration!
Let me know how your cruise was upon your return.
