    We are sailing on the Disney Magic in April. I'm interested in the Rum Point Beach adventure at Grand Cayman. Do you know if the catamaran has shade? Also, are there umbrellas available on the beach? We are a fair-skinned family and burn easily! Thank

    Ahoy Jeannine! 
    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm thrilled to hear you are planning a Western Caribbean voyage on the Disney Magic this spring! I'm sure you are looking forward to escaping the frigid temperatures of winter for some much warmer weather on your cruise vacation! 
    Since I've gotten older I definitely seek out the shade when I spend time on the beach because the sun can be intense! I've not experienced the Rum Point Beach Adventure before, but I have done several catamaran excursions, and there are usually shady spots available on the boat. The ride to Rum Point is just under an hour so you should be fine in the shade with your sunscreen on. I did find out that this particular beach area does not have umbrellas available. But, there is plenty of shade provided by the trees there. Disney Cruise Line has a reserved area with lounges which are first-come, first-served so you can either pull them under the trees or set your towels up there. I think you will find the mix of shade and sun on both the catamaran and beach to work for your fair-skinned crew!
    I hope I've given you a better idea of what to expect, Jeannine. Please stop back by if you think of anything else before you set sail this April!
    Have a magical day!
