    Hi Moms, We are sailing on the Fantasy in 45 days! Trying to decide between going to Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman or the Cayman Turtle Farm. Our group has 4 kids ages 5 to 9. Have seen mixed reviews on the Turtle Farm. Thanks for your help!!

    Ahoy Josh!
    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  With February underway, it won't be long now before you are casting off for your Caribbean adventure!  I'm also looking forward to a Fantasy sailing in the coming months and can't wait to enjoy seven glorious days on the high seas with Captain Mickey navigating the way!
    I love Grand Cayman and really think your crew will be happy with either experience!  I have a special place in my heart for turtles so this was a must-see when I visited the island. I enjoyed exploring the nursery and having my picture taken holding one of these adorable four-legged creatures!  But, with that being said, the turtle experience isn't a long excursion, and your time there won't need to be longer than 45 minutes or so.  If you decide to do this, you can always use part of your day in Grand Cayman to enjoy the ship as your destination.
    Seven Mile Beach will be a longer outing for your group and you won't be disappointed with the crystal blue waters and soft, sandy beach Disney Cruise Line offers the Seven Mile Beach Break which includes your transportation, a beverage and beach chair.  If you want to eat or rent any water equipment, you will need to budget for those expenses as well.  Remember that you will have a full day to experience Disney's own island paradise on the last day of your sailing so you may want to save your beach time for Castaway Cay. 
    I don't know if I've been much help, but I hope I've given you some things to think about for your crew. 
    If you need any other assistance, please let me know.
    Have a magical day!
