    Western Caribbean cruise 10/17 with husband and 11 & 9 yr old. Which port do you suggest doing the dolphin encounter? Suggestions for other port adventures at each of the ports?? Thanks!

    Ahoy, Karinne!

    Your October cruise sails to the Western Caribbean, which happens to have my favorite port of Grand Cayman. My girls were 7 & 10 the first time I took them there.

    I would highly recommend the "Island Tour and Snorkeling with Stingrays" port adventure in Grand Cayman. Our family participated in this a few years ago, and we all still talk about it! After a brief driving tour and a quick stop at "Hell" (a rock formation where you can get a postcard postmarked from "Hell"), your family will find themselves at the Cayman Islands Turtle Farm. You might be lucky enough to hold a baby sea turtle! Afterward, you will take a boat out to the Stingray Sandbar and interact with wild stingrays! It is amazing!

    In Cozumel, we swam with dolphins on the "Dolphin Push, Pull and Swim" port adventure. My daughters had the biggest smiles on their faces when those dolphins were swimming right next to them! We had an absolutely wonderful time at Dolphinaris. One thing to note, you are not allowed to wear jewelry or sunscreen on this Port Adventure. Plan to lock your jewelry in your safe in your stateroom.

    Our family has not been to Falmouth, Jamaica, so I do not have a recommendation for that port. I hope this helps with your port adventure planning!

    Have a FANTASTic cruise in just a few months!

    Happy Cruising, Tracy V.
