DAY 4 /9 CRUISE
Ports of Call
There’s nowhere quite like Labadee, where you can chase an adrenaline rush on an alpine coaster one minute, and do some sun soaking the next. All right in the middle of rolling jungles and sparkling beaches. Cruise to Labadee and trek to the mountaintop to catch serious air on the world’s longest zip line over water— the Dragon’s Breath Flight LineSM or climb the only icebergs in the Caribbean at Arawak Aqua Park. If you just want to kick back and relax, grab our signature drink— the Labadoozie or take a boat ride off Haiti’s shore for Caribbean hues and ocean views.
Falmouth is an essential stopover. It is a bustling, proper Jamaican town, where old ladies in their Sunday best congregate outside the limestone-bricked, English-style church and market traders ply roasted yam and sugarcane under the pretty gingerbread verandas of commerce-packed Harbour Lane. Nestled right between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, Falmouth is the perfect backdrop for discovery in Jamaica during your cruise— but there’s lots to do right there. For a relaxing ride along the shoreline, hop on horseback in Chukkah Beach or head to the Water Square and jam out with the locals to live reggae. Culture cravers can get their fix during high tea at the historical Good Hope Estate overlooking the Queen of Spain Valley. And a trip to Falmouth wouldn’t be complete without chowing down on fiery jerk chicken and rum cake, two local favorites.
Cozumel is the right size–not too big and not too small. With several international cruise ship piers, there are millions of visitors annually. Hence there are a lot of modern conveniences like high-end shopping, great restaurants and cafes and a well-developed infrastructure. It’s really a fun blend of modern glamour mixed in with authentic Mexican style. It’s a contemporary city but has a special island charm all its own. The city’s main square is haven for local events night and day, and a gathering place for merchants, artisan vendors, taco stands, etc. Outside of the city of San Miguel, most of the island is wild and undeveloped, with large sections of mangroves and jungle. The scenic eastern side is open ocean. The western side of the island is sheltered and is excellent for snorkeling, and sometimes has strong currents to be aware of.
DAY 10 – MIAMI - ORLANDO
Breakfast and transfer from Miami Cruise Terminal to Orlando. Check in at the 3* Courtyard Orlando Hotel Lake Buena Vista at Vista Centre.
DAY 11 – MAGIC KINGDOM THEME PARK
Visit Magic Kingdom Theme Park (optional). It has often been said that the true essence of Disney magic can be experienced simply by stepping foot inside the Magic Kingdom. Opened in 1971, the venerable theme park has withstood decades of changing cultures, a constantly shifting social climate, and an explosion of technology that has left lesser places outdated and obsolete. Yet, somehow, the Magic Kingdom continues to remain the undisputed king of theme parks, drawing more yearly visitors than any other. It has stayed true to its original vision, a place where families could gather in a clean and safe environment to enjoy the time they spend together. No trip to Disney World is complete without visiting the Magic Kingdom. For veteran visitors to Walt Disney World, visiting the Magic Kingdom is like visiting an old friend. To first time visitors, they find themselves quickly, and almost helplessly, transported back to their childhood.
DAY 12 – DISNEY`S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS
Hollywood Studios (optional) is often described as a half-day park because of its size and show-based attractions, but the Studios hold three of the most popular rides at Walt Disney World. Navigate Hollywood Studios using the Touring Plans suite of tools and don’t waste any of your vacation time in line for Tower of Terror, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, or Toy Story Midway Mania. Our tools maximize your time in the park so that you can ride the rides you want to, see the shows you don’t want to miss, have great dining experiences, and be entertained instead of slogging through crowds without a plan.
DAY 13 – EPCOT CENTRE
At Epcot (optional), high tech fun and Disney imagination are combined with the wonder of diverse cultures in two distinct worlds bursting with thrills and excitement: Future World and World Showcase. Both are bursting with thrills and excitement. Fly to new heights on Soarin’™, an exhilarating ride experience that picks you up and really gets you flying! You’ll feel as if you’re gliding over spectacular natural wonders and glorious country sides, taking in the sights, the sounds, and scents – like a bird in flight! On The Seas with Nemo & Friends, you don’t need gills to dive into undersea adventure––just a “clamobile!” So climb aboard and journey alongside Marlin and Dory on an exciting quest to find Nemo. Along the way, you’ll meet up with Bruce the shark, ride the EAC with Crush the sea turtle, and even come face-to-fin with some real-life fish in a gigantic aquarium. It’s an ocean of fun inspired by Disney Pixar’s “Finding Nemo.”
DAY 14 – DISNEY`S ANIMAL KINGDOM
Animal Kingdom’s (optional) 500 acres are home to some 1700 animals representing 250 different species throughout the park. A ride on the Kilimanjaro Safari will give you a chance to see many of them as they take you through the African Savannah (though the jeeps you ride in will rarely slow down long enough to allow you a good picture. This has led us to refer to this attraction as the “Kilimanjaro 500”). As the Park’s perennial Icon, the Tree of Life is truly a work of art in the best Disney tradition. At 145 ft, this 14 story artificial tree has the images of more than 300 animals hand-carved into its trunk. The base of the Tree of Life is home to the 3D film It’s Tough to be a Bug. On your way to see the show, you will invariably encounter those holding up the line to stare at each and every one of the animals on the tree. Feel free to push those people to the ground and keep going.
DAY 15 – DISNEY TYPHOON LAGOON WATER PARK
Typhoon Lagoon (optional).This 56-acre water park would most likely be the choice of FISH if they could choose an amusement park, as Typhoon Lagoon features some of the wettest and wildest attractions at Walt Disney World. Before Blizzard Beach opened, Typhoon Lagoon was the largest water park on property. It is still immensely popular, with its twisting tides, roaring rapids, wonderful waterways and relaxing rivers. Typhoon Lagoon also features a special area where guests can snorkel among live sharks and other tropical fish. Excluding the snorkeling area, all water is heated to a toasty 75-80 degrees year-round.
DAY 16 – MIAMI
