    We will be on our first Disney Cruise in September (Eastern Caribbean). We have shore excursions booked but still want to do some sightseeing and shopping on our own. What type of transportation is available on the islands?

    Welcome to planDisney Sue!

    An Eastern Caribbean cruise sounds fantastic! You will experience the beautiful blue Caribbean water as well as sandy beaches and unforgettable sunsets. 

    Each port of call will offer different options for transportation. Some ports you will simply stroll off the ship and be in the local markets and shopping districts. If you want to venture further, you have options of taxis, buses, or sometimes even water taxis. Please stop by the Port Adventure Desk on your ship prior to reaching your port to inquire about the options available. Most importantly, be safe, and make sure to return to the ship at the required "all aboard" time! 

    Since you will be enjoying some fun Port Adventures, make sure to be prepared! Pack a handy beach tote that you can use to toss in sunglasses, hats, sunscreen, and some cash for tipping your guides. Remember that depending on your mobile phone plan, there may be expensive fees to use your phone in foreign ports so do some research with your phone company prior to your cruise! 

    Have fun exploring the Caribbean! Captains Mickey and Minnie cannot wait to SEA you real soon!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
