My sister in law is diabetic, has high blood press lot of the execruision say that if you have those health issues you cannot do them.  How can she do some of these things. 

She wants to do snorkeling.  She said maybe zip-line. I do not want to zip-line  and you could not pay me to do it.  Other tours would be Mayan Ruins.  Maybe dolphins. 

Also should she tell the Cruise line ? 

The cruise is in December this year and be 6 port stops.

There is degree of difficulty for each excursion (if you use the the cruise line) you should adhere to.

Wow, Ok, the excursions are usually rated to the lowest common denominator. Being the easiest are really easy and they work their way up from there. I can only do so much so I don't go on heavier excursions because I don't want to slow others down. That is the key--- Make sure her doctor explains what she can and cannot do.

My sister had knee replacement before our cruise, she did not book any excursions because she really could not move very well. So plan well and make sure all is good before she gets on board.

Some excursions may need people to sign a waiver about their health issues, for the guests safety and the liability of the excursion company. Personally, I don't think it's worth risking safety and health if it's advised that she doesn't participate. She needs to talk to her doctor before signing up for any of the excursions that show the warning.

All of the above is excellent advice. Be careful what you tell the cruise line. They might construe it as a risk problem.
