Default Are babysitters always available?

Our Grandson will be much too young to attend Portofino with us and his parents. Does anyone know if babysitting is always available on Freedom of the Seas? If so, how do you go about reserving a sitter? We appreciate any help offered.

This is the official policy on the RCI Travel Agent site:

Group sitting is available on all ships and is supervised by the youth staff. The service is offered from 10:00 p.m - 1:00 a.m. each evening in the youth facilities. Note: Children must be three years of age, toilet trained, and pull-up diaper free to participate in the program or enter the facilities. There are no exceptions. Children fully toilet trained and pull-up diaper free are able to utilize all pools and whirlpools onboard. The rate is $5 USD per hour per child.

In-stateroom sitting must be booked through the Purser's/Guest Relations Desk at least 24 hours in advance. It cannot be booked prior to the cruise vacation, and there is no guarantee that sitters will be available. The service is offered from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 a.m. Children must be at least one year old. Approximate rate: $8 USD per hour for one or two children within the same family or $10 USD per hour for three children within the same family.

Times and prices are subject to change without notice. Payment must be made in cash.

I'm sure when your Grandson is with you people must think he is your son.

You are all so sweet and kind.
The hard (and believe me it's hard) truth is that
I (Mike) am 54 and my wife Suz is 51.
I guess playing in a rock band keeps us both young.
This is a picture of the whole crew that will be going on FOS in November.

First picture is me, Daddy Joe holding newborn Henry, Suz's daughter Nikki
(looking every bit like she just had a C section...) and proud Grandma Suz.



And here is Henry now... during a visit last month... they live outside St Louis.
Here you can see Henry going over the drink menu at Applebee's!
