We just got off the Fantasy yesterday. I would highly recommend the Doubloon Sail and Snorkel in St Thomas. We did this with my 7 &10 year old boys. We all loved it!

THANKS! That's exactly the one we have booked. I have heard a lot about rough seas and people getting sick. How was the trip back and forth?
Oh, and they did have float-able stuff for the kids to help them snorkel around like noodles or a life preserver?? Thanks again!

now that you mention being able to hear snoring...

we will be on the fantasy in december - i've never cruised before. i'm a light sleeper and snoring really bothers me...

i guess i'll pack earplugs

is there generally a lot of noise from surrounding cabins? i'd also hate to disturb anyone surrounding us if the walls are thin. plus, i'm gonna be on my honeymoon!

but seriously, I tend to be super sensitive about disturbing others in general, but I will go pretty crazy if we're next to cabin of loud snorers/able to hear a lot of noise in general.

Mythreeboysandme, how long was this excursion? Did you get any time on the beach with this excursion? Also, did you get a late or main dining?

Thanks!

Shutters only allows one account per family. If your main family is split into three cabins, they will combine for those pictures with main family members. So if you have you (adult) and a child in one room, your spouse (adult) in a second room with two kids, they will combine those. But if grandparents are in the third room, they won't include them. However, if your kids are in the pictures with the grandparents, they will include them. Clear as mud, huh?

Did they sing Party Rock Anthem at the sail away party? My girls loved that song and it was so fitting.
