Can I cruise whilst pregnant?

Cruising whilst pregnant is possible up until a specific number of weeks, however this will be dependent upon the Cruise line and Airline you are travelling with so you should always check the individual terms and conditions.

Pregnant women must seek medical advice from a doctor before travelling on a cruise, just as you would with any other form of travel. If you are fly cruising you must also check with the airline as each supplier will have varying terms and conditions of carriage.

Most Cruise lines such as P&O, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean or Azamara will not let you travel if you are past your 24th week of pregnancy. Others such as Hurtigruten and Fred Olsen will let you travel up to 28 weeks so it is vital that you double check.

Most cruise lines do require a doctor or midwife’s letter stating that mother and baby are in good health, fit to travel and that the pregnancy is not high risk. The letter must also include the estimated date of delivery. These documents are normally required at least 2 months before you travel; again you must double check with the terms and conditions of who you are travelling with.

You must also ensure that you have sufficient travel insurance to cover you in case of an emergency and also disclose your pregnancy to your insurer. If you do not inform the Cruise Line that you are pregnant then there is a risk that you may be turned away from the port and unable to embark your cruise.

Booking was made easy and were very helpful during that process.

Booking with CruiseKings was made easy and staff were very helpful and answered any query made. They were very good in ensuring the booking was as I wanted and explained everything fully. This is my first booking with this company and so I cannot comment on the actual holiday until later. Hopefully this will go ahead without too much trouble or restrictions. I also think that you can only really know how good a company is by how the deal with any problems that may arise. Hopefully my holiday will be plain sailing with no issues.

Was delighted with the customer care I received from Melissa! Explained everything very comprehensively and gave some great advice.

Mrs Brogan / June 2021

GREAT!

Really pleased with the holiday purchase. What made the experience so good was the holiday rep, Heidi. A real fountain of knowledge, explained the various options that were available to us. Would have to say without all her knowledge and patience, we probably would not have booked.
