We will be sailing with our 13 month old son in the fall and looking for any must have items to bring and other useful tips.
We have a balcony stateroom and I am worried about bringing him out on it... I just have irrational fears of him falling over. Also considering bringing a monitor so we can hear him wake up from a nap while we are on balcony. Has anyone done this? *sigh* one more thing to pack...
We plan on flying in the day before and doing some shopping there for items like diapers, wipes, disposable bibs, sun screen, blow up pool and sand bucket/toys, etc.
We have sailed on the Oasis (pre-baby) before, so I am familiar enough with the ship.
Stops: Bahamas, St Martin & St Thomas. Any tips for what to do on land? We have never been to Bahamas, but have been to the other islands. Hoping for something we can walk to or get on a shuttle for to avoid getting in a cab. Is there a beach within walking distance in St Martin? We were on the other side the last time and just did a beach break excursion. Not sure if we even want to get off the ship at this port.
Atlantis is fine to just walk around and see the sights - you can get a visitors pass which does NOT allow you to use any facilities (except sidewalks, and see aquairiums, etc) for about $20 - $30 per person.
If you want to swim there, using the waterslides, river rapids, etc, it is over $100 per person. There are people who make reservations at the hotel there in order to get passes for the facilities. But I don't recall the details, sorry!
I am the editor, but I also speculate, ask questions and play devil's advocate. I reserve the right to change my mind.
