    Traveling on Fantasy in March - which port offers the best dolphin excursion? Or should we do dolphin and stingray in GC.....visiting GC, Jamaica, Cozumel, & CC....kids are 5 & 7......thank you!!!

    Welcome aboard, Lindsey! With only two months left until you set sail on the Disney Fantasy, your whole family must be so excited! Your kids are at awesome ages to experience a magical vacation on the high seas with Captain Mickey!

    My daughter and I adored our Dolphin Swim Port Adventure with Disney Cruise Line, but another one of our whole family's most favorite adventures was visiting Stingray City in Grand Cayman. They now offer a combo Port Adventure which includes both swimming with the dolphins and Stingray City, so I highly suggest you choose that one! Since your kiddos are five and seven, the best option for you is the Dolphin Encounter and Stingray City adventure which allows guests as young as five. There is nothing like climbing into the water and having a beautiful dolphin swim right up to say hello! My daughter and I were simply amazed at the beauty of those gentle creatures, and loved getting to interact with them!

    When your family then gets to head out to the sandbar in the ocean called Stingray City, you'll experience a really unique time as the huge stingrays swim right up to you! When we went, our tour guide had some food to feed them to encourage them to hang out around us, and some of us even got to feed them ourselves. Wow! If they offer that to you, take advantage of the opportunity! It was so neat! And be sure to bring some sort of water camera or water case for your phone because you'll want to snap a few photos while you're in the water with the stingrays. One of our favorite photos is from that experience of my son and me with a stingray flapping right up onto us in the water. So surreal but really amazing! Afterward, my we found a store in Grand Cayman that sold stuffed stingray toys, so my kids bought stuffed animal stingrays as a memory of our experience!

    Have fun planning your adventures, Lindsey!
