what are your ships port of call? I just got back from Adventure of the Seas. I did the dolphin encounter Carusao. The group was small we only had six people in our group and their were two groups doing the early morning encounter at the Sea Aquarium. Normally their would be a larger group around twenty to thirty people. I took part in the early session. The pictures they took turned out great. You could buy a picture or a CD. It turned out to be cheaper to by the CD because their were two of us doing this excursion. They took about two to three pictures per person and they made sure the pictures looked good before moving onto the next person in line. Each person got a picture of the dolphin giving them a kiss on the cheek and one where you are holding the dolphin in the water.

If you book the dolphin swim their are approx. six people in your group. When I was watching the dolphin swim it didn't look like the trainers were in the water. They were standing by the side giving instructions. That is what I observed. I didn't stay the entire time.

RCCL has exclusivity with this excursion and buys out all the spots. So, if your stop is in Carusao you have to book thru the cruise line. This was the highlight of our trip.

RCL does a dolphin swim excursion in Cozumel at Chankanaab Park. It is quite an experience but it is a bit pricey (about $150) but it is a once in a lifetime thing.
