Royal Caribbean announced that beginning September 30, 2018, the cruise line will no longer offer in-room babysitting service.
On its website, Royal Caribbean cited the decision was made as a result of , "not being able to consistently meet the demand for private sitters on every sailing".
Not to worry, as Royal Caribbean will continue to offer the day- and nighttime Royal Babies & Tots drop-off program, as well as nighttime "Late Night Party Zone" group babysitting, both for an extra fee.
Any sailings departing on or before September 30 will still offer Sitters at Sea upon request and subject to availability. Guests can inquire at Guest Services onboard for further information.
