    We'll be cruising with our 10 & 3 yr old daughters and are considering the Blue Lagoon Dolphin Encounter. I know my 10 year old will love it but am wondering if it's age appropriate for a 3yr old (almost 4)?

    Welcome aboard, Lindsay! My daughter and I had the most wonderful time during our dolphin swim at Blue Lagoon when we visited with Disney Cruise Line!

    Yes, your 10 year-old daughter will love this! I am sure that your three year-old will have a wonderful time too! If your younger daughter were four, and paying the full child's price, I would say to think a bit longer about if you want to spend that amount of money for her, but since three year-olds are currently only $19 with a full paying adult for this adventure, go for it! We loved that we got quite a bit of one-on-one time with the dolphins when we experienced this. We found Blue Lagoon's dolphin center to be very knowledgeable, taking good care of the dolphins. First we watched a video and had a talk from one of the dolphin trainers, so we came away with not only the rules and expectations of how to handle the dolphins in the water, but a really nice education about dolphins in general. I love when my kids can have an educational experience along with a lot of fun on our Port Adventures.

    Then, we were offered wetsuits if we wanted before we headed out to the pools. The groups were small, so we didn't feel crowded, and had quite a bit of interaction with the two dolphins that joined us. Your older daughter will be thrilled and surely feel good about petting and kissing the dolphins, and even dancing with them! The dolphins were very sweet and gentle, so I'm sure your younger daughter will adore this experience too.

    Don't forget cash or a credit card so you can purchase pictures afterwards! My daughter still has the picture of her with Laguna, the dolphin she adored, hanging up on her bulletin board in her room. It was an amazing day!

    Have so much fun, Lindsay!
