    I'm going on a western Caribbean cruise on the fantasy and I was just wondering what port excursions would be good choices with a three year old. Also the princess gathering is sold out. Will there be another chance to get tickets to this onboard

    Welcome aboard, Laura! 

    I highly recommend the Boatswain's Beach Adventure Marine Park Port Adventure! It begins with a very scenic bus tour of the island on the way to the park. Then, at the park, the highlight is definitely all of the beautiful sea turtles, from huge turtles to tiny baby sea turtles, your little one will really enjoy the experience here, and you'll learn a lot along the way. My son was just four when we experienced this adventure for the first time, and still talks about being able to hold a baby sea turtle and how special it was!

    I also recommend one of the Port Adventures in Falmouth that takes guests to Dunn's River Falls. There are a variety of adventures that are offered which include a visit here, but you simply must choose one of them, as the falls are a "must-do" in Jamaica! 

    I'm sorry you were not able to get advanced tickets during your online check-in to the Princess Gathering onboard the Fantasy. However, please keep checking back online, as the date approaches, because some guests will change their plans, and an opening may arise. Secondly, as soon as you board the ship, head to the Port Adventures desk or Guest Services to ask about the possibility of any extra Princess Gathering Tickets they may have. Sometimes there are additional tickets available onboard, so check as soon as you board, and you may be in luck. Even if not, there are plenty of other Character Greeting opportunities throughout your cruise, no reservations needed, so check your Personal Navigator or Disney Cruise Line Navigator App for times and locations. 

    Have a great cruise, Laura!
