Carnival is a good choice because they have some limited hours of group babysitting fo ryour one year old and change diapers -- most other lines don't. I'd avoid the Celebration and Holiday -- they're very old, small ships. The newer ships are Carnival Freedom and Liberty. Carnival has a good youth program so you'll probably enjoy whichever ship you choose.

Smooth sailing,

I'm worried that you will have a hard time finding a cabin that accommodates 5 people? Usually it's just 4?
Check the guidelines for the ship..
Carnival Miracle to Aruba/Curacao/Dom.Rep/Grand Turk - 3/11
Carnival Miracle to Panama/Belize/Costa Rica-1/10
Carnival Sensation to Bahamas - 8/08
Carnival Spirit to Acapulco/Zijuantenejo/Manzanillo- 2/08
Carnival Miracle to Bermuda/Newport,RI - 4/07
Carnival Legend to Jamaica/Grand Cayman- 4/04
Carnival Imagination to Barbados/Martinique/St.Maarten- 2/03
Carnival Victory to San Juan/St. Thomas/St.Croix- 2/01
