Any Guest 23 months or younger for the entire journey, is classed as an infant, and must be accompanied by a Guest 15 years of age and over or the parent/legal guardian who is 13 years of age and over.

Any Guests travelling with an infant may be required to show proof of the infant's age at check-in, at which time the evidence of age must be presented on request. The infant’s valid passport and/or travel documents will fulfil this condition.
