    Hello! My best friend and I are taking our first Disney cruise this November (Fantasy, Western Caribbean). We are both on our late 30s. I am overwhelmed trying to pick out shore excursions. What are the must-sees for adults? (Cozumel/Grand Cayman/Jamaica)?

    Welcome aboard, Jennifer! I love sailing on the Western Caribbean itinerary with Disney! 

    My favorite adventures in Grand Cayman are ones that include either Boatswain Marine Park Turtle Farm or Stingray City. A few different adventures will take you to those spots, so check out the ones that look right for you. Where else can you head out into the middle of the crystal clear ocean and jump off the boat on a sandbar to get up close and personal with these beautiful stingrays? And at Boatswain Marine Park, interacting with the sea turtles is such a cool experience! Both make for great memories and lots of photo opportunities!

    In Cozumel, I've enjoyed both the Cozumel Beach Break and the Ruins at San Gervasio. You can do a combo adventure with the Cozumel Ruins, Chocolate and Beach Break adventure. A bit of history, chocolate, and relaxing on the beach? Doesn't get better than that! I can't wait to go on the Secret River tour in Playa Del Carmen, so that's next on my list!

    In Jamaica, you can't leave without experiencing Dunn's River Falls. It is the absolute "must-do" in Jamaica! Again, many combo adventures include a visit and climb in the falls, so see which other options sound good and pick that combo!

    I recommend combos whenever possible because Disney arranges for you to see more of the highlights of each port with these types of adventures. The guides who drive between adventures in each port usually have lots to share too, so it's like a sight-seeing tour in itself as you make your way to your main adventure!
    I hope those details help as you continue planning, Jennifer!
