My understanding is that you can now only book Dolphin Encounters excursions directly through DCL. DCL lists the age requirement for the sea lion encounter as 8 years minimum. The Dolphin Encounters website lists it as 8 years minimum OR 48 inches tall. My daughter will only be 7 1/2 a the time of cruising, but I *think* (hope!) she will meet the height requirement. Will DCL allow me to book her or do they adhere strictly to the age limit only? Our other options are to choose a different encounter or do the sea lion encounter at Atlantis on our own.
