    Hello! We are interested in the port adventure SM56-Caribbean Beach in St Maarten. I'm having trouble finding anything referencing this excursion after 2017. My questions are: is there a chair/umbrella included. Is transportation included both ways?

    Welcome to planDisney Jennifer!

    Cruising to St. Maarten sounds incredible! This port of call is definitely on my cruising bucket list!

    While I have not personally done this particular Port Adventure, I will tell you that transportation is normally included with excursions booked through Disney Cruise unless otherwise noted. When you arrive at your port of call, you will meet at an assigned location on the ship, and you will depart as a group for your adventure. Sometimes you may have to take a short walk to reach your shuttle, water taxi, or other form of transportation, but your DCL guide will get you there! As for your return to the ship, please be aware of your return locations and times which will be explained to you in detail by your guides. 

    For the amenities included, this particular St. Maarten excursion mentions a BBQ lunch and water taxi service back to the port. It does not mention beach chairs, but usually there is some beach chair/umbrella options available on first come, first served basis. I have been to beach port adventures where there is an upcharge if you wish to book a private cabana or upgraded loungers. When you board your ship, stop by the Port Adventures Desk for details on your fun day at the beach! 

    Some of the more popular Port Adventures will sell out so book your beach day of fun as soon as you are paid in full and are within your booking window. You will sometimes have the option of selecting the time of your port adventure. Personally, I like to choose the earliest time to get the most out of the day but choose what works for you and your travel party! If you have an early time slot, enjoy room service for breakfast. Simply place your order on your door the night prior and your breakfast will magically be delivered during your requested time. The magic never ends on a Disney Cruise!

    Enjoy your day filled with surf, sun, and sand! Bon Voyage!
