    We are planning a cruise in 2012 on the Fantasy to the western caribbian. Does the ship dock right up to the island as it does at castaway cay at the ports of Cozumel, Myan Island and Costa maya? Also, can you walk around the dock area and shop?

    Hi, Linda!

    Congratulations on your cruise next year on the new Disney Fantasy -- the fourth ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet!

    For the Western Caribbean, the ship will dock (not tender) in Cozumel and Costa Maya unless there is some unusual circumstance.  However, there are three cruise ship piers in Cozumel so make sure your taxi driver knows where to take you if  you venture out.  Shops and restaurants are located within walking distance in Cozumel. For Costa Maya, there is shopping, dining and a public beach and pool area within a (long) walking distance.  For both ports, there are clever entrepreneurs who offer alternatives to walking by way of rickshaws and other creative modes of transportation.

    I hope this helps you plan. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation.

    Bon voyage,
