Here are our recommended port adventures for visitors to Falmouth, based on Disney Cruise Line’s current offerings:

Low Budget: We’re not all that enthusiastic about most of the inexpensive excursions when as little as $10-$20 extra can add an additional attraction or meal. Chukka Horse and Buggy Through Falmouth (FA13, page 308) just doesn’t deliver enough bang for the $49/$35 price.

Big Budget: Disney offers 4- and 6-hour tours in private vehicles, either sedans that seat up to 3 ($249/$359, FA33/FA34, page 310/page 310), 6-seat minivans ($299/$449, FA35/FA36, page 311/page 311), and 10-person vans ($359/$529, FA37/FA38, page 311, page 311). At $147/$101 All-Inclusive Jewel Beach Break (FA68, page 313) isn't the cheapest of its kind, but meals, snacks, open bar, sailing, windsurfing, and kayaking are all included. You thought Disney parks were expensive? Mystic Mountain’s Tranopy Adventure (FA12, page 308) delivers great views from a skyride, a zipline experience, and the Jamaican bobsled ride (just one ride on each), plus the use of the pool and water slides, for $159/$129 (ages 8 and up, must be at least 48”).

Nature: Dunn’s River Falls is nearly a must-see; 25% of all excursions stop there. Despite the non-stop procession of cruisers wending their way upward, it’s as close to must-do as you can get. If you head this way, pick an excursion that adds other activities, they’ll be a much better value. Nearly all nature excursions are fairly active, so we continue in Active, below.

Active: This may be zip line paradise. Of them, we like the value of Chukka Zipline Canopy and River Tubing ($132/$105, FA24, page 309), just $22 more than zip-only, AND lunch is included. White water is hard to find in the Caribbean, so whether by raft, kayak, or tube, we’re in! ($80 and up). There’s something about horseback riding in the surf... ($105/$155, FA15/FA16, page 308/page 308), and Chukka’s Amazing Race ($190, FA45, page 312) is sure to please fans of the TV series.
