    me again - is it cooler in the evenings? what offshore excursions are suitable for 10 & 5 yr old girls?

    Great to hear from you again, Kheirunnissa!

    I do like to take a cardigan or wrap to have in the dining rooms during dinner and on deck.  I am cold-natured though so it may be a comfortable temperature for you! 

    Your Eastern Caribbean itinerary offers some great Port Adventures!  The St. Maarten Island and Butterfly Farm Tour is a fantastic way to experience this spectacular port of call.  I think your girls would enjoy the seeing the beautiful butterflies up close!  If your family enjoys marine life, the Seaworld Explorer is a fascinating submarine ride that allows you to explore some Caribbean coral reefs. 

    In St. Thomas, I recommend the Tortola Dolphin Encounter or one of the Coral World experiences.  Both of these excursions are great for young children, and I don't think you could go wrong with any of these choices. 

    You are going to adore Disney's private island, Castaway Cay!  This is my favorite port of call, and I love lounging on the beach and taking a dip in the crystal blue waters!  My family enjoys renting the bicycles, swishing down the waterslides at Pelican Plunge and splashing around in Spring-A-Leak, the water playground.  Many Guests like to book Castaway Ray's Stingray Adventure to see the stingrays and snorkel. This might be a good option for your crew!

    I hope my suggestions help with your planning!  Please let me know if you think of any other cruise questions!

    Have a wonderful day!
