    I have 4 year old twins and a 12 year old boy. When I looked at the Cast Away Cay adventures, most cannot accommodate the 4 year olds. What activities are there to do on Cast away Cay without doing the excursions? Thanks!

    Ahoy, Amy!

    Castaway Cay is our family's favorite port, and we almost never book an excursion there! There are a variety of planned activities, as well as the kid's area, Scuttle's Cove. You can check your little ones into the beach "club" while you take your oldest to do something a little more his speed. Perhaps a family bike ride or some snorkeling in the 22 acre snorkel lagoon? Just like on the ship, Scuttle's Cove will call your wave phone if your children wish to leave that area.

    Scuttle's Cove is a sandy play area that includes a brand new 1,200 foot water play area. This new "soft wet deck" area features water spray jets, geysers, and bubblers, all with fresh water coming from them. There is also Monstro's Point, a giant whale bone exploration area. Your little ones will find so much to do here, you will probably have to return to get them before they call for you!

    Our family brings sand toys from home, but you can also purchase some at She Sells Sea Shells...and Everything Else or By The Sea Shore, both shops are located on Castaway Cay. We love spending part of the day digging in the sand and making sand creations. There are also plenty of chairs with umbrellas along the Castaway Family Beach to protect your little ones from the sun, too.

    We also like to go to the Crab Races, run near Cookies BBQ. It's pretty hilarious, and will be listed on the Daily Navigator.

    I hope your family has an amazing time visiting my favorite port. Please let me know if you have further cruise planning questions.

    Happy Cruising, Tracy V.
