Hi everyone!

We are currently in Nassau ... what a chilly, windy day!!!! Although sure beats being home with 14 iinches of snow. :thumbsup2

The weather has been a little less than perfect, as we left Port Canaveral under very, very windy conditions. The temp. was about 58 degrees. Seas were a little rougher than usual last night, as the Captain informed us due to the cold front we would experience waves 8-11 feet. However, I don't think they were too bad.

Docked in Nassau this a.m. It's partly cloudy with a temp of approx. 65 degrees. One passenger told me that she has signed up and paid for dolphin encounter and although it still was a go, she chose not participate as it would be have been way too cool to have her kids in the water. I would definitely agree.

We attended the bridge tour and inquired as to the possibility of docking tomorrow at Castaway Cay due to the high winds. They are optimistic as the winds are due to die down, however if not possible, they will try again on Wed. (sea day).

Any questions? Ask away!

Maureen - thanks for checking in live. We love live reports. If you see a fellow DISer named Amy (alikat99) and her family tell them hello from the DVC Member Cruisers!

Although I haven't seen them ... they are staying down the hall from me, as their door signs are great. I will write them a note on their door!

Hi DisneyPoly-
Is Andy from Australia on your cruise? I think he's the cruise director. If you see him, tell him the beach volleyball future champs say hi!
Thanks,
Arica

DisneyPoly,
Did you check into a WDW resort prior to the cruise? Also do you know if they sell DCL robes in any of the shops on board and if so, how $.
Thanks

Is there a Disney Vacation Club meeting listed for members on Monday or Wednesday of the 4 night cruise? I saw someone from another group say they just started these, but no on on this board knew anything about it.
Thanks!

Hope you have a GREAT cruise! Next month is our turn! Take care of the Wonder for us!

Sorry, the cruise director is a woman, can't remember her name at the moment, but she's from North Carolina.

No, we stayed with my in-laws the night before cruising. I did not see any DCL robes in either of the shops. Sorry .....

Yes, DVC is now on Board and they have held two meetings, Monday and Wed. They have a presentation for potential buyers and also a gathering for current members. They had give aways, etc. We received hats and lanyards.

Enjoy your trip!
