I am still debating on wether we want to do the DCL. The price is so much higher, so I am gathering infor to see if it is worth it to us, and also to have reasons to convince DH to go on this line over Carnival. Is food included on the island like on the ship? Do you have to rent snorkling equiptment? Is there a place to snorkel? I see that the sting ray encounter cost, and is for kids 5 and over, which I didn;t know, so I guess that one is out, since DD will only be 4. Scuttle cove? Can the whole family go and play together, or do you have to drop off he kids. Do you get a beeper if you do drop them off. Is it near the family beach? Is it a far walk to everything or are there shuttles? Any advice or help would be great!
