Hard to say, really. My 13 and 15 year old would did not/would not participate. Not a reflection of cruise. My kids are shy.

Loved swimming with the stingrays, but don't take the boat there. Take the catamaran. Boat is very, very slow. Left no time for shopping or visiting the town. We did the stingray/beach party. Beach party was expensive.
Don't Miss: Swimming with stingrays.

Dunns River Falls is fun, but one time only. It gets crowded. Try to do it early. The beach party was really fun, as it is all inclusive and the food is good. However, the beach site isn't great. Your view is obstructed by the ship.

Pros: Dining experience and shore excursions
