    Hi Mom's and Dad's We have our Disney Cruise on the Fantasy coming up over Thanksgiving 2014. I was looking at the segway tour in San Juan for my mom & husband but my mom is 74. That said 2 years ago she did the helmet dive! Any exceptions available?

    Welcome aboard, Elaine! What a wonderful way to spend Thanksgiving this year: setting sail on the Disney Fantasy! You'll have even more to be thankful for this year, as you get to experience the amazing activities and events onboard the ship and the Port Adventures in these tropical ports of call!

    The Fortifications Segway Guided Tour in San Juan Puerto Rico is a wonderful adventure. When I first rode a Segway, it was such a neat experience. I was surprised how stable those Segways are. I honestly expected to fall right off, but I didn't luckily! Actually, they are very stable and after a few minutes of practice, pretty easy to get used to! Unfortunately, Disney Cruise Line's age restrictions are non-negotiable, so I'm afraid you'll need to check out some of the other Port Adventure offerings if your mother would like to join you. In fact, the computer system will not even allow you to book her on the adventure because it takes into account the registered ages of all guests.

    But the good news is, you can still explore Old San Juan. And since it sounds like your mom is one that is up for all sorts of adventure, I would like to recommend the Horseback Riding Adventure. You'll get to meander on horseback through the gorgeous country of Puerto Rico while learning more about the history and culture of the area. If you'd still like to explore Old San Juan, don't worry! The port is right off of Old San Juan, so depending on the timing of your adventure, you'd have time to explore Old San Juan on your own before or after your adventure. If your mom is really an adventure seeker, the La Marquesa Canopy Tour is a great one too!

    Have fun planning, Elaine!
