    My son is 17 years old and a die hard fisherman, will their be any place for fishing if we did the Mexican cruise? that is safe for him to go alone? Is their a payment plan for us, that we could pay on monthly if were going to take advantage of the special

    Hi, Maria!

    For a fisherman, you couldn't have picked a better destination than the Mexican Riviera! Cabo San Lucas is famous for sports fishing, earning a reputation as the billfish capital of the world and plays host to marlin-fishing tournaments every year. The Cabo San Lucas Sports Fishing Port Adventure would be perfect for your son, and as the mom of a 16-year-old son, I would be perfectly content with my son enjoying this adventure on his own.  In fact, I wouldn't allow for him to experience any port on his own without being a part of a Disney Port Adventure.

    The only caveat is to make absolutely sure that Disney Cruise Line and the tour operator is aware that a minor is participating alone on this excursion before you book it.  There are teen-only Port Adventures, but you're going to want to double check for this one. Also, you may want to stop by Guest Services to sign a permission form for him to exit the ship without you.  I wouldn't want to get up at the crack of dawn to escort my son off the ship -- and that's usually when fishermen like to get going.

    To finalize your cruise reservation, simply apply payment using one or more credit cards, a Disney Gift Card or a Disney Rewards Redemption/Visa Card. You may put the reservation on hold (if available), or you may pay in full or put down a deposit to reserve your vacation. The size of the deposit is determined by the cost of the cruise. Your full and final payment for stateroom categories 1-3 must be made 90 days prior to departure -- 75 days for stateroom categories 4-12.

    I hope all this information gives you the "green light" to book your Disney Mexican Riviera cruise. Let me know if I can answer any other questions for you. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
