First thing we did after embarkation was find Adventure Ocean on Deck 12. We walked though to the nursery area and requested the catalogue of toy bags available to lend for our trip. We were shown 15 toy bundles suitable for babies aged 0-36 months. The bundles are created to inspire leaning though play, something Royal Caribbean seem to be passionate about enforcing throughout the ages they cater to.
We chose bag 7 and were advised that the bag needed to be returned by 10pm the night before we disembark. Luckily the nursery staff also followed up the day before the end of our cruise with a call and a voicemail left on our cabin phone to remind us, great as it had slipped my mind.
Elijah enjoyed playing with these toys whilst we were getting ourselves ready in a morning or getting dressed up for our evening meal, his favourite was the piano that played music and spoke Spanish, he spent a lot of time bashing the life out of it as babies do!
Having the toys lending service meant we saved having to bring lots of Eli’s toys from home and risk losing them or forgetting them. It’s free and super easy to lend them and really useful when you’re struggling to entertain a little one in the stateroom.
All items are sanitized after every use and upon inspection the toys were immaculate so I had no concerns when letting my little one play with them. I would recommend taking advantage of this complimentary service on your next Royal Caribbean cruise.
