    Heading off on our 6th Disney Cruise next month on the Fantasy! We would like to try snorkeling with our 8 and 6 year olds for the first time this year and wondering if you would suggest St. Thomas or San Juan, Puerto Rico for the best snorkel experience?

    Hi Kerri!

    Six cruises and counting - it sounds like you're an old pro when it comes to Disney Cruising! You've obviously experienced the excellent service and amazing attention to detail that comes with cruising with Disney, and keep coming back for more. You and I have that in common!

    If I were to suggest the best choices for snorkeling between St. Thomas and San Juan, I'd have to go with St. Thomas, hands down. With six different snorkeling Port Adventures available to you and your kids, I think you'll find a wider variety of experiences compared to San Juan.

    I encourage you to check out the following Port Adventures, which all sound incredible!:

    Caribbean Sea Safari Snorkeling and Beach Tour

    Doubloon Turtle Cove Sail and Snorkel (who doesn't want to sail on a real pirate schooner?)

    Full Day Caribbean Sail and Snorkel to Turtle Cove and Honeymoon Beach (includes BBQ lunch!)

    St. John Trunk Bay Beach and Snorkel Tour (awesome underwater snorkel trail)

    These are only a few of the awesome Port Adventures available to you in St. Thomas. Hopefully you will find the perfect place for your kids to experience snorkeling for the first time! - Diane W.
