Youth Center / Toilet Trained Provisions

Ship Youth Center – Child Care

In addition to our Autism on the Seas Respite Sessions (Staff Assisted Cruises ONLY), the Children's Programs onboard the ships can also offer respite time, with their own staff, where our staff is on call to them for assistance.  Most of the ship staffs have experience with children with special needs.

 

Toilet Training Provisions
Note: These guidelines are specific for Royal Caribbean International Cruises, but are very similar on Disney, Celebrity, Carnival and Club Med as well…

 

For individuals with special needs who are not toilet trained, please note the following:

If an individual is less than 3 years of age by the cruise date:

    • Participation IS allowed in the Royal Babies and Royal Tots Programs.  This program requires parents to participate as well.

    • Participation IS NOT allowed in the Children’s Program.  This program is for individuals 3 years or older.

If an individual is more than 3 years of age by the cruise date:

    • Participation MAY BE allowed in the Royal Babies and Royal Tots Programs, if the parent feels this is the appropriate grouping for their child.  This program requires parents to participate as well. Special restrictions may apply here, please contact us if you have any questions.
