And even then, this Canadian will be in the water.

I know, but I didn't want to rub it in.

Plenty to do.

We just left CC 3 weeks ago. The water was a little chilly, but once you were in, it was very comfortable. We got the extreme package @ CC. We got floats, snorkel gear, bike rentals and the Stingray adventure. My family, DW, DD (21), DS (18) and I had a fantastic time. I would definitely say that CC was the highlight of the cruise. After we did everything, we just relaxed at the adult beach and enjoyed the day. I believe we may have been the very last people back on the boat before she sailed. We are hooked and will absolutely cruise again with Disney.

"Let's go fly a kite..."

We bought kites at Dollar Tree. They fit in our suitcases and everyone had a good time. There's usually enough wind to get them up. Smaller pocket kites can be bought at toy stores or outdoor rec stores.

My parents, who won't swim regardless of the water temperature, are planning on trying to find the geocache that is on the island.

We haven't been to Castaway Cay yet (the stop was canceled on our first Disney Cruise due to weather), but we're going again this April.

So, I can't directly answer your question but will offer up the same suggestion that poster ldo said, which is to look into buying a shorty wetsuit. My family of four each has one and we've used them several times in cooler water (at least what we consider cool -- anything less than 80!!). We LOVE the shorty wetsuits. Comfortable and you stay warm.

We bought our adult shorty wetsuits (aka "springsuits") online from Wetsuit Warehouse (mine is a *********** brand) and our kids' from Swim Outlet.
