From there it’s on to Water Island’s secluded Honeymoon Beach (access by boat only) for relaxation, swimming, and more snorkeling. A BBQ lunch follows, with ribs and chicken for the adults, and hot dogs and chicken tenders for the kids. Lunch, snacks, and soft drinks are included. Wear swimwear and cover-ups.

Enjoy a great view (see photo on page 146) in this suspended tram. Bird shows are held twice daily. You can do this excursion anytime after 9:00 am. Jennifer tried this and found it a fun diversion with great views, but not a don’t-miss. Cruiser reviews are mostly positive: The tramway is an “easy 10- to 15-minute walk” from the pier (but if you tender in, it’s a “$3/person taxi from town” instead). The view from the tram is “just amazing” and you get a “great view of the Disney ship.” The “birds are cute” (shows are at “10:30 am and 1:30 pm”) and there are some “nice shops” to browse. There is also a quarter-mile “nature walk” and a “little cafe.” Most cruisers simply walked over (you can see the tramway from the pier) and purchased tickets on their own, at the same price ($21/$10.50).

Enjoy a speedboat ride to two different snorkeling sites, Buck Island’s Turtle Cove, where swimming with turtles is “most likely,” and Shipwreck Cove. Price includes snorkeling equipment, snacks, and beverages. Typical meeting times are 7:15 am and noon. Cruiser comments are very positive: The “adventurous” speedboat ride is “pretty fast” and “lots of fun.” The crew is “friendly” and “helpful.” Snorkeling is “wonderful” with “many colorful fish.” The only complaint reported was with the snacks, which “weren’t all that great.” Overall, cruisers “loved it” and “would do it again.” (On Your Own: http://www.viwatersports.com 340-775-9360

Take a three-minute walk from the Havensight pier to the Butterfly Garden for a guided tour through the gardens and a bird show. This excursion is stroller and wheelchair (standard only; no electric chairs) accessible. The Butterfly Garden opens at 9:00 am and you may arrive, stay, and depart when you wish. Note: This tour is not available when the ship docks at Crown Bay or tenders. (On Your Own:http://www.butterflygardenvi.com

 Discover Scuba Diving   [ST41]

There's no experience required for this intro to scuba, and it may even count towards eventual PADI Open Water certification. After your initial shallow-water training, you'll move to beautiful Shipwreck Cove at Buck Island for an open-water dive (depths up to 40 feet) amidst fish, turtles, stingrays, and coral. Guests must meet PADI Discover Scuba requirements (including a long list of medical requirements and restrictions). Beverages and snacks cost extra.
