Without denying that comfort is one of the many factors why you selected the cruise in the first place, your vacation can also become an adventure on a grand scale. Following are some tips to help you make the most out of your vacation and live the adventures you never imagined first hand.
• Try surfing on a flow rider
In case you booked a cruise on a ship with an innovative and modern design, then chances are they have a flow rider system onboard where you can try surfing. Ships that include flow rider usually have an instructor on board, so don’t worry if you have never surfed before, as you have plenty of time to learn the basics.
• Challenge yourself on the rock climbing wall
Another fun activity to pass the time while on the ship is to go up on the rock climbing wall. Usually located on the top deck, rock climbing on the ship doesn’t require you to be in top shape to scale the wall and check out one of the most unforgettable high sea views of your life. In general, ships will provide you with the necessary safety equipment and give you easy instructions, so you don’t have to take rock climbing courses in advance.
• Swim with dolphins

Several locations around Jamaica allow you to participate in a hands-on experience with these amazingly strong and peaceful creatures. Therefore, look over the cruise’s itinerary and book a thrilling swim with these graceful sea mammals.
• Snorkel under the sea

Signing up for a snorkeling trip is a surefire way to see all the wonders the underwater Caribbean has to offer.
