    We are planning our first Disney cruise in March and are interested in snorkeling but no one in my family has any experience. It will be my husband, 14 year old daughter and myself. Should we book a different activity?

    Hi Susan!

    So happy you stopped by to talk about my favorite topic: Disney cruises! Between the fabulous food, exceptional entertainment, and stellar service, Disney Cruise Line wows Guests and keeps them coming back for more. Especially with Castaway Cay, an unforgettable destination with its crystal-clear waters, beautiful beaches, and ample activities. At the end of your stay, you just might say, “Best Day Ever!”

    I can SEA why you and your family would love to snorkle while on your cruise, and I say, "Go for it!" Snorkeling is such a serene and relaxing activity-one of my all time favorites! Most ports offer this activity, and there are plenty of Port Adventures you can sign up for that will let you swim alongside the real life Nemo and Dory! 

    If you are new to snorkeling, my recommendation is to try it on Castaway Cay. The Snorkeling Lagoon there has two snorkeling trails: the Discover Trail for beginners, and the Explorer Trail for experienced snorkelers. Additionally, everyone is required to wear a life vest, so that makes the floating part of snorkeling much easier. 

    The protected snorkeling lagoon benefits from having a natural barrier that keeps the water calm most of the time, which translates into smoother waters for snorkelers. Lifeguards are also positioned around the lagoon in the event a guest needs assistance while snorkeling. You can reserve your snorkeling equipment in advance to streamline the process or you can always rent it once you arrive at Castaway Cay.  

    Swim back over to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have additional questions. Hope you have a FINtastic cruise!

    SEA ya real soon!
