We are going on the Voyager Western Caribbean in June. My kids are 22,19, 15, and 8 so there is quite an age difference here. What excursions might be ok for all ages to do together? Are there age limits on some of the excursions? I thought about the Submarine. Is the 8 year old too young for the Snorkeling at Stingray city or Dunn's Falls?
Diane, we just came back from Explorer yesterday! It was awesome! Our second time, two different itineraries. We also did Voyager 3 years ago. Each trip was great! Three years ago our kids were 12,10, and 7. We did Dunns River Falls and it really wasn't a problem at all. We just did Stingray city and some other snorkling in the Caymans with children as young as 4. They had a little trouble in the water snorkling, but not with the stingrays. The snorkling and stingrays were fantastic! We did our own excursion with Captain Marvins and they were great! You can find them on the web @ Captain Marvins.com. Whatever you do, do not go to Tulum and Xel Ha in Cozumel. Too long of a trip and not enough time in either place. This time in Ocho Rios, we went to the Island Village, which is a new shopping place. It was great for us! There is a Restaurant and bar there called Margaritaville. It has a pool with a slide and it's on the beach with a trampoline in the water. It was great for the kids and for the adults! We did some shopping and then some swimming. You will have time to do that even if you go to Dunns River first. In Labadee there is a water playground with climbing things and trampolines. Its fun, but make sure you sign up for that, because it sells out early. We went on waverunners and did parasailing, but, your 8 year old would not be able to do either one. There are banana boat rides for everyone though for a small fee. If you have any questions, feel free to get back to me. Have a great trep! Debbie
