Grand Cayman
Island Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

We are glad we did this port adventure. The kids especially liked the hands-on eco guide as we earned about the mangroves.

We also learned a great deal about the island from our tour guide, went to Hell and made a short stop at 7-mile Beach, where our family hopped in the beautiful water for about 20 minutes.

Costa Maya
Chacchoben Mayan Ruins Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

The ruins themselves were actually pretty cool. There was plenty to see there, and we even got to see a spider monkey up in the trees. The port of Costa Maya is incredibly run down and now that I've already seen the ruins, I can't think of any reason I'd need to get off the ship in this port. Disney should re-think stopping in CM.

Cozumel
Port Rating: Not Rated

We LOVED Cozumel. We hired a driver for the day and got to see much of the island. We drove through the jungle out to the side of the island that doesn't have electricity. It's amazingly beautiful out there. It must be the windward side, because there were plenty of waves.

We had our driver stop at a restaurant/beach resort where we swam for a few hours. I'd go back to Cozumel in a heartbeat. Also, my husband was able to get a cup of Starbucks, a welcome relief after semi-poor ship coffee.

Castaway Cay
Port Rating: Not Rated

Our favorite stop of the whole trip. We rented snorkel equipment, used the pirate slides, saw a sea turtle and enjoyed incredible weather the entire day.

Disney crew was again fantastic and we even managed to find enough chairs for everyone in our party. The water was a tad chilly, but that didn't stop us from spending the day in it. Way to go, Disney!
