    Can you leave children in the care of DCL counselors while you and other adults go on an excursion? Are you able to be contacted if there is an issue while you are on the excursion?

    Welcome back, Corey! Disney Cruise Line offers some amazing Port Adventures in all of their ports of call. You'll have so many wonderful options when you begin searching for the right adventures for your family! 

    If you come across an adventure you'd like to take without the kiddos, you can absolutely check them into the Youth Clubs onboard the ship so they can enjoy all of the fabulous activities there while you sneak away for some adventures of your own in port. Just let the counselors there know that you'll be leaving the ship, and which of Disney's Port Adventures you'll be on. You can leave your cell phone number if you're using that while in foreign ports of call (just check with your wireless provider about roaming fees), and they can also reach you in the unlikely event of an emergency by getting a hold of their Port Adventure guides that are running your particular adventure. We've not had a problem when we've done this at all, but it is always best to give them all of your contact details. That is one reason why we always stick with official Disney Cruise Line Port Adventures in the ports. Disney plans the best ones out there, but knowing that the ship always knows where we are when we disembark for the day, and knowing we won't be left behind should we run late with our adventure, gives us great peace of mind.

    I hope you enjoy browsing all of the exciting Port Adventures for your sailing, Corey! Please stop back to visit us again with more questions about your cruise! We'd love to help!
