Default Pregnancy


Has anyone here cruised while pregnant or know if there are any rules or
regulations with the cruise lines about pregnant passangers?
Thanks

The cruise lines all have regulations about it, from Princess for example:

4. RIGHT TO REFUSE PASSAGE.
You will not be allowed to board the ship or be entitled to a refund if You
do not have proper documentation. Carrier may refuse to embark You if, in
Carrier's sole opinion, You are unfit for any reason or You will enter the
third trimester of pregnancy by the end of the Cruise. If Carrier refuses to
allow You on board for any of these reasons, any refund of the Cruise Fare
will be made based on the timing of such refusal in accordance with Section
6 and Carrier will have no further liability. If You become unfit to travel
for any reason during the Cruise and/or disembark early, Carrier shall not
be liable for any refund or damages.

RCCL:

Pregnancy
Royal Caribbean will not accept guests who will have entered their third
trimester of pregnancy (27th week) at the beginning or at any time during
their cruise vacation. Please contact us if you have already booked your
cruise and do not meet this requirement.

If you look in the FAQ section of the various cruise line sites, you will
usually find the stated policy on pregnant cruisers. I think most lines
adhere to the "can't cruise in the 3rd trimester" rule, but obviously, you
shouldn't rely on a Usenet post on such an important issue. Certainly,
medical direction is essential. Cruising while pregnant presents issues....

Diana Ball
near Houston, TX---- thinks it would be more romantic to conceive on a
cruise

Has anyone here cruised while pregnant or know if there are any rules or
regulations with the cruise lines about pregnant passangers?
Thanks

Diana,

I do appreciate your reply, however I am not stupid enough to cruise
before clearing it with my doctor. My cruise was already booked when I
found out I was pregnant. Thank you.

I'm sorry you took offense. None was intended. Best wishes on your
pregnancy. And cruise!

I was 5 and a half months pregnant back in 1992 when I cruised for 7
days. No problems whatsoever.

My sister-in-law chose to take a 4 day cruise when she was 8 months
pregnant with her second child. She had a note from her OB if needed.
It wasn't. I'm not condoning cruising that late into your pregnancy,
but this is what she did nevertheless.

Lindsay,
I don't know of any cruiselines these days that would allow someone to
cruise at 8 months pregnant with or without a note.
