    Hi Nancy, TY for the info. Finally booked our 1st cruise for Feb 1 to the Car. Any suggestions on port advent? Twin girls 9Y want Dolphin adv and beach of course but i don't know which port to pick. Any other good port adv to do? Thanks!

    Ahoy Hershey!
    It is wonderful to hear from you again, and I'm excited that you have booked your first cruise!  Your crew is going to love the Disney Fantasy and the Western Caribbean itinerary!  The Disney Cruise Line Port Adventure Team does an amazing job of partnering with tour operators ashore to offer fabulous excursions so you really can't go wrong with any of your selections.  Here are a few you may want to consider when it comes time to book.  In Grand Cayman, I recommend the Boatswaim's Beach Adventure Marine Park or the Rum Point Beach Adventure and Stingray City Tour.  The Boatswaim offers a fun, splashtacular experience with a visit the Cayman Turtle Farm and a great opportunity to see some spectacular marine life.  The Rum Point option allows time to enjoy a quaint beach visit with a trip to snorkel with stingrays at Stingray City! 
    In Cozumel, I would try to book a dolphin experience at either Dolphin Discovery Cozumel or the Dolphin Swim at Dolphinaris.  If you are looking for an encounter, Dolphin Discovery is your choice while Dolphinaris offers an opportunity to swim with dolphins!
    In Costa Maya, I suggest the Jungle Beach Break or staying onboard and enjoying the ship as your destination!  Since Disney Cruise Line saves the best beach day for last on Castaway Cay, you may want to stay onboard to ride the AquaDuck, watch a movie on the Funnelvision while swimming in the pool or solving a mystery with the Midship Detective Agency!  Even though the ship is in port, there is still plenty to do!
    When you visit Castaway Cay, I suggest Castaway Ray's Stingray Adventure (if you don't do Stingray City in Grand Cayman), or the Castaway Cay Getaway Package.  The packages allows you to rent bikes, floats and snorkel equipment all in one!
    I'm about out of room, Hershey!  If I can help you further, please write back! 
    Have a magical day and happy planning!
