We're (me, DH, DD(7), & DD(4) ) going on our first cruise this November. I have made reservations for the Fury Catamaran, snorkel, & beach party. This has a great rating in Passporters and my DH & I thought it would be fun with DSIL & 3 nephews (16, 13, & 10). Here is the dilema. The excursion begins at 12:45pm and is 4.5 to 5 hours long. We'd be leaving our DDs onboard with DMIL. It appears that this is pirate night. We have main seating. So..... those of us in port would not make it back for dinner. Uggghhhh. Those who have done Fury Catamaran is it worth missing pirate dinner for it? Any insight is appreciated.
