If you are a member of a state motoring association such as RAA, RACV, NRMA, etc. (sorry but I don’t know the name of all of the state ones) some of them have travel sections. If anybody has special dietary needs you need to make enquiries whether they can guarantee their food will be safe and not cross contaminated in any way. Some also don’t supply baby food even if they know there will be babies on board, A lot of food can be mashed up but we found not all was suitable. Fortunately we took commercial sealed baby food with us. We went with Royal Caribbean. They were excellent but they are often more expensive than others (I didn’t choose the cruise company. I went with family who had gone with them before) You may find you can purchase your cruise cheaper on-line. Make sure you get Travel Insurance. Read the Terms & Conditions etc. carefully as some companies are a lot better than others. We used Bupa whose policy was the best we could find. Some charge extra if you have some medical conditions. I expected to be charged extra but I wasn’t.
