    Are there activities for a 70 year old grandmother to do with 10 and 12 year old boys that do not require an expensive shore excursion fee? We are taking the 3 day Bahaman cruise in late February. The excursions are all so expensive.

    Ahoy, Nancy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! My family loves to take Disney Cruises with my parents joining us. Embarking on a multi-generational cruise is so fun because there is something for Guests of all ages, every day of the voyage! The kids will never forget the time spent sailing to paradise with their grandmother!

    We love to book Port Adventures while visiting each destination during our Disney Cruise, but exploring the different ports of call on our own is also a really fun way to submerse ourselves into the culture and traditions of each port of call! The 3-Night Bahamian Cruise is a wonderful itinerary because there will be plenty of fun things to explore just steps from where the ship docks, without booking an excursion. In Nassau, grandma and her buccaneers can debark the ship and visit restaurants, local merchants and shops just a short walk away from the cruise ship. On Disney's private island, Castaway Cay, there will be a list of complimentary scheduled activities (held on the island) on the Personal Navigator newsletter. Did you know Guests are allowed to bring their own snorkel gear from home to use while visiting the island? That might be a really fun activity for the family to try!

    Thank you so much for stopping by and asking this wonderful question! If you can think of any more questions, please don't hesitate to visit us again!
