Do I need to buy a ticket for my baby? If you are able to carry your baby, they would qualify as 'babe in arms' ( (i.e. a very young child or a baby who is not yet able to walk or crawl, and so must be carried in someone’s arms) and you don't need to buy a ticket for them.

Check out our FAQ page for more information on what to expect.
