There are safety concerns to consider when traveling while pregnant. This is especially true of going on a cruise. Here are some important things to consider before you say “bon voyage.”
Consult Your Physician
Before booking your trip, consult with your physician on whether or not you’re safe to travel. They can best advise you on the optimal times to take your babymoon.
Check With the Cruise Line Before You Book
Cruise lines are concerned with the safety of their passengers, and pregnant women are no exception. Some cruise lines don’t permit women beyond six months pregnant to embark on a cruise. For many, the cut off is 24 weeks. Some lines require pregnant women to submit a doctor’s note. Many river line cruises offer more flexible policies, as these ships are closer to ports of call with medical facilities. Before you book your cruise, check the line’s pregnancy policies.
Pack extra pairs of comfortable clothes, extra medication and any other items you may need in an emergency.
The whole point of going on a cruise while pregnant is to relax. Instead of overextending yourself going on multiple excursions, opt to lounge by the pool, book a spa treatment, take in a show or any other activities that will give you much needed R&R before your bundle of joy arrives.
No matter how many years of flying experience you have under your belt, some travelers still struggle to find the perfect position in which to sleep, and also may find it difficult to find the perfect accessory to aid in this attempt.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
