This post is part of a series about our cruise aboard Holland America's ms Noordam.
This super cool semi-submarine does not fully submerge, although the company does offer some fully submerged excursions. A submerged effect is achieved because the (air-conditioned) hull is five feet below the surface level. The Grandparents and kids saw tons of marine life and a shipwreck. Catherine excitedly told me all about the scuba diver who fed the fish -- bringing hundreds of fish right to their window. This is a particularly great excursion for multi-generational families traveling together, because age doesn't matter.
The grandparents found this particular excursion on their own, however, if you're the type that likes to book through the ship this company does partner with many cruise lines, including Holland America. (Here is one of Holland America's excursions aboard a Cayman Islands Submarine.)
Please note: I personally did not go on this excursion, I was busy scuba diving for the first time! This is not a sponsored post (I was not compensated in any way in exchange for this post) the family simply enjoyed the trip so much that I just had to share!
