    My son (11) and I will be sailing on the Fantasy on May 27, 2017. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on what shore excursions would be best for us to consider. Thanks for your help!

    Ahoy Doreen –

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Sailing away with Captain Mickey is a fine idea for next summer, and I am happy to assist you with your question. Based on your dates, I see you are planning to visit Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Jamaica and Castaway Cay. Of course, every family has different preferences for shore excursions, and I can share what my 11-year-old enjoyed on her port adventures on the Disney Fantasy at some of those stops.

    At Cozumel, we did the Cozumel Beach Break which had amazing turquoise waters and pristine white beaches. There are plenty of water sports, beach activities and even poolside fun there. Cozumel is an amazing place to snorkel, and any adventure that includes a chance to experience it will be a delight for your son.

    At Grand Cayman, 7 Mile Beach (Family Beach Day at Tiki Beach) is a beautiful family fun beach, and the amazing Turtle Farm and Dolphin Encounters are crowd pleasers.

    At Disney’s Castaway Cay, there is a great mix of adventure (bicycling, tube floats, snorkeling, sting ray) with relaxation. Doreen I hope I have pointed you in a good direction, but please feel free to come back if you need further assistance.
