    Any excursion suggestions for a 5 year old on the 7 day eastern carribean cruise? How is the butterfly garden? My daughter loves all animals.

    Ahoy Anthony!
    Both St. Maarten and St. Thomas offer a butterfly experience that I'm sure your princess will love!  The St. Maarten Island and Butterfly Farm Tour is a great choice, and your daughter will be delighted to see these beautiful creatures up close and personal!  If she wears bright colors, she will likely have them land on her during the visit at the farm!  After your exciting butterfly interaction, you will be able to enjoy some time exploring Marigot and possibly pick up a special souvenir and a delicious French pastry!  In St. Thomas, the Tortola Dolphin Encounter would be a good selection if you daughter loves animals! The actual experience lasts about 30 minutes, and lunch is included in the price.  On Castaway Cay, Castaway Ray's Stingray Adventure is always a Guest favorite so I would definitely consider it for your crew.  Snorkeling is included in the adventure so you will need to set aside about an hour for the stingray interaction and marine exploration!
    I hope these suggestions help, Anthony!  Have a look further and please let me know if you have any other cruise questions!
    Have a magical day!
