Default Should I take kids (3 & 6) off the ship in Calica/Key We

Hi - A few families are taking their kids on the Carnival Imagination with stops in Key West and Calica (Playa Del Carmen).

Wondering if there is enough to do for kids / families to do in both stops or would they have more fun on the ship?

Thanks for your help!

Definitely take the kids in Key West! It's a great little place with lots to see! I haven't been to the other stop. I personally, won't even consider leaving my child on the boat while I get off at a port. I have this fear *WHAT IF* something happened and I didn't get back to the boat in time?

I wrote an article on this family cruise site called "Western Caribbean for Kids' that gives ideas on fun things to do ashore in those ports.

Hope it's helpful.

smooth sailing,

Agree - wouldn't think of leaving my children on a ship while I'm in port in a foreign contry. Every port has something for kids to do - even if it is just play in the water.
