    I am sailing February 14 on the fantasy. I booked the hair salon for my 7 year old. What else do I need to book. It is our first time. Don't want to miss out. I saw on the excursions she is to young for a lot of them.

    Hi Heather! 

    I see that you are embarking on an Eastern Caribbean cruise on the Disney Fantasy in just a few short weeks, you must be so excited! 

    Your cruise will have three days at sea, which is so perfect for a first time cruise, as you will have lots of time to explore the Fantasy.  Be sure to try the Midship Detective Agency! There are many activities offered onboard on the ship, which can all be found on the Daily Navigator. You can also download the Navigator App onto your smart phone and have it at your fingertips. 

    As far as what else to book, if your family wants to experience any Port Adventures, you will want to get them booked quickly. In St. Maarten, our family tried the Golden Eagle Catamaran when my youngest was six, and she loved it! The catamaran ride was not very long, and we went to a lagoon where we could swim up to the beach that was right there. We had my daughters practice with a mask and snorkel in our bathtub before we left for our cruise, so that they didn't have trouble once we were in the ocean.

    In St. Thomas, our family tried the Coral World Ocean Park By Land And Sea Port Adventure. When we went into the semi submarine, our guide went into the water to show us some of the undersea life, which my daughters both thought was neat. We also fed some tropical birds, which was fun!

    I hope this helps with your planning. Please let me know if I can answer any more questions for you.

    Happy Cruising, Tracy V.
