Hi cruisingwithmy2girls, welcome to Cruise-Chat! Congratulations on your up-coming cruise! How old are your children? If they're old enough, Camp Carnival does wonderful activities for children. I believe the minimum age is 3. Not sure what ports you'll be visiting, so cannot recommend shore excursions. It would also help to know what activities you enjoy.
There are a few sections further down the main page that might be of assistance to you. Our Caribbean Port Chat section and our FAQ section has some really good posts in them.
Please take a look around and be sure to ask any questions you might have, we'll try to help as much as we can!
Thanks for your help! We're looking at the leaving on February 26th - my oldest daughter's 8th birthday - her sister will be 5 at the time of travel. Ports we'll be visiting include, Grand Cayman, Ochios Rios and Cozumel.
Any suggestions on shore excursions? Also a little concerned about the upper berths for the kids - do they have side rails? Thanks again for your help. Go glad I found this site!!
If your children like the ocean, I'd suggest Stingray City in Grand Cayman. They're a little too young, in my opinion, to do Dunns River Falls in Ocho Rios. Maybe Fern Valley would be an option there. Just please stay with an organized tour in Ocho Rios. Take a look at our Caribbean Port Chat, too. Best wishes!
