 Deluxe Stingray City Sandbar Snorkel   [G39]

Rating: 9

Board a boat specially built for the Stingray City experience, with a broad stairway for water entry, a sunny observation deck, and shady lower deck. After a 25-minute cruise you'll be ready to wade and snorkel with stingrays in 3 to 6 feet of water (tide dependent) above a natural sandbar. All gear is supplied and water is served. If you want to see stingrays, these are the excursions we recommend. Cruiser reviews are very positive: The cruise to Stingray City is “fun,” with “great scenery.” The stingrays are “amazing,” but be aware that “some kids may be afraid at first” and the “water may be over their heads” if it’s “high tide.” Overall, this “unique” excursion is one “the whole family can participate in.” (On Your Own: Captain Marvin’s—see page 325)

 Seaworld Observatory Semi-Submarine   [G10]

Rating: 9

Take a ride on this semi-submarine to discover shipwrecks and sea life. A marine expert is on board to provide narration and answer your questions. Note that this excursion is very similar to the Nautilus Undersea Tour (see below). Cruiser reviews are very positive: This “short” excursion takes you down “five feet below the water” to view “Cheeseburger Reef” and two “shipwrecks,” with “coral reefs” and “many fish.” The “viewing windows” are “generous” and “clear.” Overall, a “fun time for the whole family!” Typical meeting times are 8:30 am and 10:30 am. (On Your Own: Atlantis Adventures at http://www.caymanislandssubmarines.com or 800-887-8571, but they may not accept direct bookings from cruise ship passengers.)

Rating: 6

Take a 10-minute ferry ride from the pier to board this full-fledged submarine, which dives down to 90 feet (27 m.) for a 40-minute reef tour. Guests must be at least 36 in./91 cm. tall). Typical meeting times are 9:15 am and 1:15 pm. Cruiser reviews are mixed, though more positive than similar excursions elsewhere, thanks to the better views and visible sea life.

Rating: 8

Cruise on a semi-submarine with a marine expert. The Nautilus glides like a boat and never entirely submerges. This excursion is very similar to the Seaworld Observatory (see page 323), except that your craft does not go down as deep (which one you choose to do may depend on your comfort level). Typical meeting time is 9:15 am. Cruiser comments are positive: The “view is phenomenal” and cruisers loved seeing “actual wrecks,” “sea creatures,” and “water plants.” The “friendly” crew identified the wrecks and sealife. The “comfortable” boat was “a lot of fun.” (On Your Own: http://www.nautilus.ky or 345-945-1355)

Rating: 6

Enjoy a relaxing half-day (2.5 hrs. on Disney Fantasy, 3.5 hours Magic or Wonder) at a secluded beach. Includes lunch and a soft drink. Watersport rentals available for extra fee. Cruiser reviews are mixed: Take a “long journey” (first a bus then a one-hour ferry) to reach the “nice” but “small” beach. Cruisers suggest you “try to secure beach chairs as soon as you arrive.” Lunch is “good” with a “variety of food.” Overall, some cruisers enjoyed “being able to relax” while others felt “herded like cattle.” Typical meeting time is 8:20 am.
