Hi Maria,
Be sure to take your son to Sting Ray City in Grand Cayman, I bet he will really enjoy swimming with them, its a great excursion. Good idea to pick up an underwater camera at home before you cruise. Dunns Rivers falls is also fun in Jamaica and when we were in Labadee, we did the waverunner tour, great fun and you can drive it on the slow side or be up in front going faster, your choice.

I absolutely loved our Explorer cruise, I'm sure you will too, enjoy!

For your 9 year old, I would definitely do Stingray City in Grand Vayman. That is great fun for any age, and something you won't do anywhere else. Labadee is just a beach day-rent a mat and maybe learn to snorkle.

I DEFINITELY agree with the other posters: Don't miss Stingray City OR Dunn's River Falls. And if you are going to Cozumel, take a taxi the few miles to Chankanaab. It's a beach/park and the snorkeling is GREAT as far as what you will see under the water. I think the taxi will cost about $8 and the entrance fee about $l0. You can rent the gear on the beach. Also, there are many good excursions to nice snorkeling areas in Cozumel, some by catamaran that stop at a beach.
