Disney has been providing massive entertainment for all its viewers, listeners and fans for decades and for the same reason Disney Cruise Lines has made it possible for its fan to have a magical sail at the sea with them. But is it a good idea to cruise while being pregnant?
Can I Cruise If I’m Pregnant?
Yes! If you are having a healthy pregnancy and your doctor has given approval it is okay for you to cruise. Many cruise lines welcome pregnant passengers in their first or second trimesters. However, there are strict pregnancy policies implemented that limits the travel for pregnant women, starting ahead of their third trimester, due to possible pregnancy complications and likelihood of preterm birth.
Passengers in their 24th week of pregnancy at any point during the sailing will not be allowed to cruise. These policies have been put in place for the safety and well-being of mothers and the babies, since most lines are not equipped to safely care for a newborn that is delivered prematurely.
Health questionnaires are signed by some cruise lines when booking or at check-in so that to make you aware of all the rules and pregnant related policies. Other cruise lines need a approval letter you’re your doctor that ensures that it is safe for you and your unborn child to travel while being pregnant and the expected delivery date. It’s important to follow official protocol, or you may face any kind of issues with boarding or may end up losing your cruise ticket.
If I Get Pregnant After Booking My Sailing?
Many people decide cruise vacations in advance, there is always a possibility of a later unexpected pregnancy that might coincide with your sailing plans. If you have not done the final payment and you do not wish to cruise while being pregnant you can always cancel your booking and get a refund back. However many cruise lines do not consider pregnancy as a cause for refund so if the cancellation is done after final payment it is possible that you may not receive full refund due to cruise line’s cancellation policies.
It safety measures it is recommended to purchase travel insurance as to protect the vacation investment you did. Conditionally whatever plan you choose, it should help in cancelling or rescheduling the sailing plans if you later learn that you are pregnant after booking.
Is There A Medical Care Onboard?
If you have already booked and later on got pregnant, you should check with your doctor and make sure that cruising is okay for your health. In the past if you have experienced any pregnancy difficulties or are expecting twins or have delivered preterm, it is prudent to reconsider your cruise plans.
