Smile Need help to think of something special.

We are sailing on our cruise November 3rd. Its me, my DH, DS 9, and DS 6. This is our second cruise with disney. Sailed the wonder back in 2010.

Every trip I try to do something a little special for each of my guys. This year I'm booking a Pirates and Pals cruise for my 6 year old who loves Jake and the neverland pirates, I'm planning an exotic race car driving experience for hubby, and now my 9 year is the one i'm stuck on. anyone have any ideas?

I'm thinking this would have to be something on the ship or during port stops, because I dont think I have time to plan something around the cruise. If not then we have two park days after the cruise that I might be able to work with. One day for MK, and the next for HS.

Thanks in advance for your advice! greatly appreciated!

What about a surprise parasailing excursion on Castaway Cay, just him and a parent...leave the little one with the other parent on CC?
Our dds were 8 & 11 on our last cruise and we did the tandem parasailing with them and they LOVED it!

The Pirates and Pals cruise was so neat! I took my son last year, he was 10 and he wished we could do it all the time. What ports are you visiting? I have booked 2 person jet ski as a surprise as his birthday is on CC day this year. If you are going to Nassau they have a Sea Lion excursion that I plan to book when we return there.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions! I'll look into these. The jet ski's sound cool!
