    Hello, Gemma - 

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your question. Your voyage is coming up really soon and I'm sure a lot of the planning is already taking place in preparation for your trip. I'm not too sure which particular itinerary you are sailing, so I'm going to take a chance and try to answer your question in a general manner. I welcome the opportunity to chat with you again, if you have a specific port in mind that you would like additional information on. Just come back online and drop us another note here on the Moms Panel :-).

    While docked at a specific port, you are welcome to leave the ship to visit the nearby port area. There are usually a number of places nearby to explore freely. Ports usually have a shopping area for souvenirs and shops that are within walking distance from the ship. Make sure to pay attention to the All Aboard time. This would be the time that you'll need to be back onboard the ship. 

    When visiting new port cities, Disney Cruise offers an array of Port Adventures that you can sign up for. You can choose the type of excursion as well as age appropriate activities for the members in your family. These port adventures are available at an additional fee. It is very convenient since the tour guides will meet you at a specified location onboard, and your whole group will walk out the gangway at the same time. You'll usually board a motor coach or tram, or other mode of transportation that will whisk you off to your port adventure for the day. Most of the tour guides are also local, so it's a great way to learn about a new town from someone who lives there. If you decide to explore on your own, stop by the Guest Services desk for a map and some ideas of where to go, and how to get there.

    Happy planning!
