Default Horseback riding...which is the best place?

My 16 year old HAS to ride horses on our RCI cruise this March. We are stopping at Cayman, Jamaica and Cozumel (spelling??). Any suggestions for a gal who is very experienced in horses and her dad who will likely fake it!?

horseback riding is very popular in Jamaica and Cozumel. I haven't done it personally so i can't steer you in a particular direction, i would suggest seeing what your ship offers

Hey dad - locked in on the Carribean in March? I'm looking at RCI Monarch out of Los Angeles to Cataline, San Diego, Ensenada March 17-21 for the purpose of doing horse trips at all 3 stops. (Will be doing a week long Boy Scout cavalcade at Buffalo Trails Scout Ranch in June and need to ramp up the horse skills.) Doing this trip with my son. Myself - PADI Divemaster, SSI Dive Con, SSI Scuba Ranger Leader, Red Cross Life Guard, Assistant Scoutmaster, Merit Badge Counselor, etc.

Yes...booked and counting the days! Although, I am trying to get a different cabin. Right now we are in a family cabin in front of ship. But then I though..."wow, I have 3 teen age daughters and a wife, and only one bathroom!!" Trying to find adjoining cabins...but am striking out. I have a feeling I will be using the locker rooms to do my showering! lol

Yep, poor planning, especially if any formal night. I'm lucky - my 12YO kiddo is a master diver so instead of a shower I just strap a tank on his back and toss him in the water. 8)

paul- adjoing cabins are few and far between, hard to find, you might do better trying to get a second cabin across or down the hall a bit. FYI - you will have to book either yourself or your wife into the girls cabin, this is a formality that the cruise lines use.
