    My family and I are taking our first cruise in May. We are interested in the Dune Buggy excursion in Cozumel, but it states age 8 & up. How strict are they on the age, my daughter will only be a couple months from being 8.

    Welcome Aboard, Robyn!

    Congratulations on booking your very first cruise - how exciting! You've made a wonderful choice with Disney Cruise Line, where you're treated like a VIP from start to finish. Our first cruise was a Disney Cruise, and I can't imagine sailing with anyone else!

    The Dune Buggy Port Adventure in Cozumel looks like a lot of fun, but unfortunately, Disney Cruise Line's Port Adventure age restrictions are firm and they do not allow exceptions. DCL partners with independent contractors for these adventures, so therefore there isn't any wiggle room on Disney's end.

    That being said, Cozumel has lots of other Port Adventures that your daughter can enjoy! The last time we visited Cozumel, we really enjoyed the Fury Catamaran Sail Snorkel and Beach Party. After boarding our awesome 65-foot catamaran, we sailed about twenty minutes to a great snorkeling site. My youngest daughter was about the same age as yours, and she loved swimming in the ocean and getting to see the beautiful tropical fish! After snorkeling, they took us to a private beach where we enjoyed a delicious lunch and a relaxing afternoon. (Well, I relaxed while my husband and kids played on the inflatables in the giant aqua park!) On the way back to the ship, they played cool island music for us to enjoy. It was a really fun time! They also took some great photos of us snorkeling, and one on the catamaran with our Disney ship in the background.

    That's just one adventure available to you - I encourage you to check them all out on the Disney Cruise Line website. I hope you find the perfect Port Adventure for your family! - Diane W.
