    Going on 1rst DCL cruise to the western Carribean on the Fantasy in Oct! Have been asked by our children's school (ages: 10, 8, 6, 5) to provide an educational leave description of our trip. What onboard activities & excursions will fit this descript

    Ahoy J!
    Congratulations on your first voyage on Disney Cruise Line!  Although activities are always subject to change here is an idea of some of the onboard activities that may be offered on your sailing.  Learn about solid, liquid, and gas as you make your own Flubber!  Gases In Action also involves a hands-on experience with the three states of matter.  In Ratatouille's Cooking School, the kids will use math skills to make chocolate cookies from scratch!  The MidShip Detective Agency involves problem-solving skills to solve the mystery of "Who Stole the Show!"  This fun, interactive game involves moving throughout the ship to figure out the clues presented by the Enchanted Art onboard. 
    As far as Port Adventures go, any snorkel adventure is a learning experience as it involves exploring Caribbean marine life.  A dolphin encounter or swim is not only a thrilling excursion, but learning will also take place as you soak in lots of info about this incredible mammal.  On Cozumel, I recommend the Xcaret Eco-Archaeological Park or the Tulum Ruins & Beach Tour.  Either of these will provide an excellent lesson in Mexican history!  On Castaway Cay, Castaway Ray's Stingray Adventure will provide a lesson about stingrays as you interact with these amazing creatures!
    I hope my suggestions help!  Please let me know if you have any other questions about your Fantasy cruise! 
    Have a magical day!
