Has anyone booked any excursions for Cayman and Cozumel? Did you book through DCL or private company? We are booked on the Stingray City excursion through Moby Dick tours. It's getting close!!!

We booked the shipwreck snuba for Cayman. For Cozumel, we're going to Nachi Cocom. It gets rave reviews on here and on tripadvisor.

We are so excited too! Even though we just returned 3 weeks ago from the Fantasy, we didn't get to relax much. Looking forward to a week of relaxation with my honey (kids will be at home with Papaw!)

Thanks for the responses!! We are booked on the Catamaran snorkel tour for Cozumel which we booked through DCL. I figured if we booked through DCL we are more likely to be booked with families versus partying singles. We'll see. Either way we are very excited!

My family and I just booked this cruise on yesterday! This will be out first Disney cruise and we are sooooo excited!!!

We have booked VGT - can anyone tell me the pros/cons of this option? We really wanted a Verandah stateroom and this was the least expensive option.

Also - what are some good excursions for our 4 year old daughter?

Any tips, suggestions, or help would be most appreciated!!

Welcome My main suggestion: Just relax and don't try to do everything! We've been on 3 Disney cruises (29 nights total) and still haven't done everything

Welcome to you too !

Although I've never cruised on a VGT rate, I think it's a great deal! We just can't book last minute like that. I would think the only con would be you can't pick your own cabin and will end up in whatever verandah stateroom Disney needs to fill. But I have read about people getting great rooms! I definitely don't think it means you'll get a bad room or location. And of course, main pro is the price!

Can't help on the excursions part. Although we've cruise with our son at that age, it wasn't these ports.

But make sure to get her signed up for the kids club! Our son has always loved them And if she's into the princesses and other characters, check the navigators (the daily list of activities) so you know where to meet them. The princess lines can get long quick so make sure to line up early if she really wants to meet them. If she likes to dress up in princess costumes, many little girls wear them to dinner

Yes!!! Can't believe that 2 weeks from tonight we will be strolling on deck4 after finishing a nice meal! DH and I picked up a few adult beverages this evening and packed them in our carry-on. Still need to pack everything else.

We have our hotel booked and car parking reserved. We are also excited about meeting up with some friends for dinner the night before. We lived in the area for 5 years till last summer and we are looking forward to meeting up with them too :-)

Does anybody know if we are having both a formal and semiformal night?? I saw somewhere that this cruise has a dressy night only. What is dressy?? I'm going OCD!!!!

My family and I are so excited!!!! I need to start packing!

Is anyone doing their own excursions?

For Grand Caymans, we may just take a bus or taxi to Seven Mile Beach or Smith Cove.


But I don't know what to do for Cozumel. We may do Playa Mia (sp?) but it's a little too pricey in my opinion.

Would love to hear everyone's plans for excursions!
