The atrium lobby decorated for the holidays makes a popular photo op for next year's Christmas card.
For Adults―No Kiddin'
We're serious here: You don't need kids to enjoy this cruise. One-third of the main pool deck is reserved for those 18 years and up, with a coffee shop, gym, restaurant, and spa. On Castaway Cay, you can escape to the adults-only beach for a massage in a private seaside cabana. Meals on the ship rotate between restaurants, where excited kids are ever present, but you can request a smaller dining room table or one with other adults.
Ports of Call
The hard part about shore days? Choices. Options abound, but here's what we'd do. On Key West, join this island's famous tradition of applauding the sunset into the sea from Mallory Square.
Cozumel means bargain hunting for silver (barter―it's a local sport). Or just lounge at the Playa Mia Grand Beach Park ($12 per person but well worth it), where a gorgeous sandy beach inspires an indulgently lazy afternoon.
On Grand Cayman, take a popular snorkeling tour of Stingray City, where tame rays glide close and even eat from your hand. If you don't mind swimming with crowds of people and rays, this is a signature experience.
You'll love Castaway Cay, where Disney meets island living. Discover fun family games, bike trails, and shops on this private island. The family beach frames a snorkeling lagoon staffed with lifeguards. At the cute cabanas, all food is free.
