    Just did a bit more research, and got some feedback. The recommendation was to go to the Edge open house (listed on the navigator), and talk to the staff. IN the past, they have let 10yo into the Edge with no hassle. Maybe between our two, we can convince them. This trip looks to be lean on the tween set anyway...

    We are doing Las Caletas Hideaway too. My kids are 7 and 8 and I'm sure they will love it.

    Not sure about the 10.5 year old, but the young lady should be ok. I would go the first day and check with the counselors. You might also get a feel for how old the kids are in that group. With so few children on the cruise you might find that the age of the Edge crowd may be too old for your almost 11 year old. Keep in mind the Edge allows kids to come and go as they like.

    One nice thing for the adults, since there were so few kids on board, they had an adult time in the Lab for us. We got to make flubber.

    Sounds great. That is our plan too. I had also read that having the kids attend that first night (assuming they are allowed) is really good to do. They meet many of the kids and counselors, and set up what they want to do.

    Thanks for that advice. Definitely a smart idea to check out the age trend in the group. I'm honestly wondering if the trend won't be younger since I'm guessing it is harder to take older kids out for so long. I guess we will just have to check it out. Thanks!

    For those of you that have been to Cartegena on a cruise ship before, is there someplace at the port you can get your passport stamped?

    We are also booked for Las Caletas in PV, and possibly taking one of our nieces along as well.

    Great question! DS really wants the stamp (so does Hubby).

    Would love getting a stamp too.
    What are you all doing in this port?
    Thought we would taxi in and just enjoy walking about and taking photos.:beach:

    Do people carry these about in their pockets or small purses?
    Are they useful(no kids with us).

    We have kids, and they were only useful for contact with kids clubs. Otherwise, we never really used them. But that was only a one week cruise - I imagine they will come in handy as we go about, doing our own thing.

    Having kids, I always had a bag with me. But skirts with pockets were handy too!

    Did a little non-Disboard research. Someone who has done this many times before mentioned to go to the immigration desk at the port (but not customs), and they will stamp it for you. I will also ask Guest Services on the boat for advice.

    I read somewhere, but I'm not 100% sure....you can leave your passport at Guest Service and they will get a stamp for you.

    I carry mine in my pocket. I find them very useful as we don't have kids and we tend to do different things but if we need to meet up just a quick call away. Or now if someone makes a food run for our balcony we can ask what we want. I love the phones.

    So here is our answer...from another Disboarder...


    Guest Services does accept passports (and gives you a receipt) to TRY to get stamps. They cannot promise, they can only ask the Customs officials at the various countries the ship visits to stamp them. Since a stamp isn't required, it is totally up to the agent.

    This includes from Castaway cay, although it of course says "Bahamas", not Castaway.

    Hope this helps!
