At Mahogany Bay Cruise Port we hopped on the Magical Flying Beach Chair ($14 adults, $8 children ages 4-12) that carried my family from the Welcome Center over lush landscape to the marvelous Mahogany Beach. Talk about a killer view and a primo spot for selfies, if you have a steady hand!
We were transported to our private Cabana ($370+ tax for family of 4 & chairlift tickets) which included; air conditioning, two lounge chairs, hammock, wifi, waiter, cabana attendant, beach accessories, all in a semi-private beach area.
George Town, Grand Cayman–
We sucked face with our fresh seafood lunch over the water at Rackam’s Waterfront Bar & Grill, it’s a short walking distance from the main cruise port, so close, you can actually see your cruise ship! Great meal, fantastical view and reasonably priced, what more could you ask for?! We then jumped on a public transportation to get our retail-therapy fix at the beautiful bayside, entertainment district~ Camana Bay. My family felt extremely safe and it didn’t hurt that the atmosphere was absolutely breathtaking.
Whilst there, we grabbed refreshing pick-me-ups, that really picked us up, all while soaking in the serene setting.
We explored under the sea on the Atlantis Submarine Tour and glory to God in the highest, I did not feel claustrophobic, huge bonus for all involved. My tribe then strolled alongside the cruise port Souvenir Shops, ice cream in hand aaaaaaaaaand all over our mouths!
Falmouth, Jamaica– Chukka Adventure Park & Falls at Good Hope
We purchased the Good Hope Aqua Thrill Seeker & Adventure Falls day pass through our cruise line (Disney Cruise Line) which included; transportation to the excursion (25 minutes away and the scariest ride in the jungle, the driver might or might not of hit a dog) Once we arrived we Zip-lined through the jungle, Kayaked on the iconic Martha Brae River and gobbled up an authentic Jamaican lunch, including Caribbean themed spirits. You have plenty of options for adventure, pick your favorites!
Key West, Florida- The World Famous Conch Train
I purchased this attraction as a cruise ship excursion once we arrived in Key West. It can also be purchased online for additional savings. I bought the tickets at the Conch Train Front Street Depot and was given a cute little fan “map” to help bring relief from Key West’s infamous humidity and a unique way to view the landmarks we were about to see.
Hours of operation are 9-4:30 daily and depart the depot every 30 minutes, prices vary.
We had a lovely, informative trip through Old Town Key West, we enjoyed stories of yesteryear and witnessed unique architecture. If you forget your “Depends” and can’t hold your bladder, you will have a 15+ minute break during the tour, which gave me enough time to potty, grab a drink and a souvenir in record time. With new historical knowledge under my belt and a slice of key lime pie in my tummy, I was ready to tackle the rest of the day in Key West Florida. #thestruggleisreal
Nassau Bahamas- Atlantis Resort -Day Beach Pass
Atlantis Paradise Island is an ocean-themed resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. It features a variety of accommodations built around Aquaventure, a 141-acre waterscape, which includes fresh and saltwater lagoons, pools, marine habitats, and some of the sickest water slides. You can get to Atlantis multiple ways, by land or sea, we paid a few bucks and took a boat ride to Atlantis right from the cruise port.
My family experienced delicious Conch Fritters and Conch Burger’s at Shark Bites- casual outdoor restaurant & bar located at the base of the Mayan Temple. If there are gamblers in your party, strut on over with your bad self to Atlantis Resorts Casino and see if it’s your lucky day. Please take time and wander through the marine habitats during your visit, you won’t be sorry. TIP- Definitely on the pricey side, but fun for the entire family.
