The Butterfly Garden is one of the top cruise ship attractions for families with small children, thanks to its convenient location right on the Havensight cruise ship dock and its population of hundreds of different species of butterflies. More than 1,000 of the brilliantly colored winged beauties inhabit the small 10,000-square-foot, mesh-enclosed, walk-through garden, including species from every continent. Tour guides and breeding boxes teach guests about the process of metamorphosis from egg to caterpillar to butterfly. Photographers may want to arrive in the afternoon, when the insects are more sluggish and easier to capture on film.
