    Departing April 10 with 9 y/o daughter on our first cruise! Which dolphin swim would you suggest 1) Cozumel, Push, Pull and Swim 2) Grand Cayman, Dolphin Extreme Swim and Turtle Farm? Only doing 1 activity, would just enjoy surroundings/ship at other port.

    Ahoy Gillian,
    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited you and your princess are embarking on your first magical voyage aboard Disney Cruise Line in April! My family has enjoyed the Western Caribbean many times and have actually experienced the Cozumel Push Pull and Swim at Chankanaab National Park. This excursion is close to the port and offers several other options once your dolphin adventure is over including a sea lion show, a beach area for splashing around and a swimming pool. My son was about 8 1/2 when we did it, and his favorite part was being pushed by the dolphin on the boogie board. 
    I have not experienced the Dolphin Extreme and Turtle Farm yet, but I have visited the Turtle Farm since I'm a huge fan of turtles! Being able to see all the various sizes and holding the baby turtles is so much fun! I really think you and your daughter will love either experience because the interactions with the dolphins will be similar with the exception of the use of the boogie boards. I think the deciding factor will be the additional activities offered so have a look at the descriptions of Chankanaab National Park and the Turtle Farm to see which one appeals to the two of you. 
    Good luck with your decision, Gillian! Please let us know if you think of any additional questions before the big day arrives! 
    Have a magical day and happy planning!
