Disney Cruise

– We just came back from a 5-night Bahamian cruise on the Disney Wonder ship and had an amazing time! This was our first experience on a Disney Cruise and let me say that it is a must do. There are Disney characters all over the ship and on Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island. Put it this way, there are so many activities to do it is impossible to do them all! There are live shows, movies, character interactions, deck parties, age specific activities, games, adult only activities and much more. Our destinations were Nassau, Bahamas and Castaway Cay.

At Nassau we visited the Atlantis Resort and did the beach day package. If you would like to do the 1-day water park package make sure to get there early (they sold out of tickets as we were standing in the line!). They have amazing aquariums throughout their resort! It’s probably the best thing to do during your day on Nassau, unless you’re booking an excursion.

We were let off on Castaway Cay on two separate days. The beach is very clean and many of the beach chairs have umbrellas. Make sure to get there early to get the best spot! They offer snorkeling, swimming with sting rays and many other water activities at an additional charge. They also offer a kids camp on the island, which is free of charge. This is good for all ages and offers the parents some time to check out the adult area of the island. They are currently in the process of adding private cabanas and  more food pavilions on the island.

For those of you traveling with teenagers; they have “teens only” areas on the ship as well as on their island. Overall we had a great experience. They were even showing 3-D movies such as Toy Story 3, Alice in Wonderland and premiering Disney’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Check out the newest ship, Disney Dream ,which sets sail for the first time on January 26, 2011.

    We went on our first Disney cruise for the 4th of July and had a great time! It was a four day cruise that included one day in Nassau, Bahamas and one day at Castaway Cay. One of the best activities was the pirate party with fireworks finale! The kids really enjoyed the childcare venues onboard and at Castaway Cay. We really enjoyed having some grown-up time to discover the ship and the island.
