Diarrhea + vomiting and a cruising with kids (maybe while pregnant) question

1) Today I had to pick the little guy up from daycare because he had diarrhea and he threw up.  I think it may be related to the Gerber 3rd Foods he ate on Wednesday night. I say that because the last time he had diarrhea he had eaten those at least 2 nights in a row.  That was a week to 2 weeks ago.  He never threw up that time.  The diarrhea lasted about a day.  I still give him that stuff if I get home too late and I don't want him waiting a long time to eat.  Or he won't eat what I've cooked for dinner and I want him to eat something.

I was thinking the other day that he might be too old to be eating those.  He'll be 2 on the 15th.  I'm not sure why he would though. Google has failed me.  Maybe his system doesn't like those foods anymore.  I feed him those smoothies by Ella's Kitchen and couple of other brands I can't recall at the moment.  No problem there.

Has anyone else ran into this?

2) A friend invited the hubby and I on a cruise.  If we go, we'd have to decide if we want to take the little guy.  He'll be 2 1/2 yo. I read the travel:water tags and there's some good info.  I'm asking here to see if anyone has traveled with kids on the Carnival Victory Cruise.  How'd did it go?  In the past I've been told not go to Carnival because they aren't as nice as other cruise lines.  I also plan on being pregnant then.  If all goes well, I'll be about 8 months.  That probably sounds crazy yet I still want to go because it's our friend's and his wife's 30th birthday. Plus, being in the military means friends and family are often far away so we want to take this time to spend with them and other friends.  So any advice on cruising while pregnant would be great.

Thanks.
