you may also want to google cabs in cozumel.From what i recall they are on a fee schedule and hsould be able to show you a fee schedule to any major destination before you get it.

I think most rides max out around $20-ish for a car load of people.

The turtle farm in Grand Cayman is a blast! Imagine this same photo of one of your kids (I am a big kid at heart!) I would recommend a beach in Cozumel...I've heard good things about Paradise Beach (not offered through DCL), we are going on our next trip there in Sept.
Usually in Grand Cayman, we do the "Island Tour with Stingrays", which includes a stop at "Hell", Grand Cayman, then the turtle farm, and then a ride out to the stingray sandbar to interact with the stingrays. My youngest was 7 the first time we went there, and she loved it, but I'm not sure your kids are old enough, according to DCL.
Have a great cruise! The Western Itinerary is our favorite!
Also, on CC, its fine to not plan anything and just enjoy the beach. You might want to pick up some cheap sand toys at home to pack, they are expensive on CC.

We are booked on that cruise too and our son will be 2 months shy of 4 when we sail. We have signed up to do the family beach day at tiki beach in Grand Cayman, the Chacchoben Mayan Ruins tour in Costa Maya, and the Cozumel ruins and beach tour. We also have a cabana booked but I'm not 100% sure we will keep it.

I didn't personally go on the Chacchoben Mayan Ruins tour, but DH and DS7 did. We didn't dock in Costa Maya until noon on my cruise. DD3 still takes a good two hour nap in the afternoon, so I knew she would never make it. I stayed on the ship with her which ended up being great because she really got to enjoy a non-crowded pool for quite a while. At one point she actually had the whole Mickey pool to herself (this was on the Magic).

DH and DS7 really enjoyed the Mayan ruins. DS is getting to the age where he enjoys learning about history. DH said the bus ride to the ruins was really long, about an hour each way. So if you bring a little one, make sure you have something to entertain them on the long bus ride. DS actually slept the whole way back.

thanks for the info! I'm a little nervous about the drive but he does love buses (haha) so hopefully he'll be okay. we will pack some entertainment for sure! staying on the ship sounds nice too though!
