What are some things you take with you to Castaway Cay?
 
If you are traveling with children, what are some things you take off the ship with you for a day at Castaway Cay?

I decided to bring snorkeling equipment instead of renting it and maybe some sand toys, sunscreen, tissues...anything else?

We didn't have a lot of extra space in our luggage so we only brought a few small (cheap) sand toys, along with the usually necessities like sunscreen. DD talked me into buying a relatively cheap snorkle and mask (toy) from a shop. There was plenty to do without bringing much extra. If your kids are toddler/preschool, you probably want at least a couple of sand toys.

Enjoy your cruise!

KTTW card/photo ID/lanyard, sarong, extra big t-shirt, sunscreen, Kindle, camera, bottled water, lip balm, visor or hat, sunglasses, towel purchased on ship (I like to use full sized towels and the ones they hand out are not very big). Next time I will bring water shoes (never needed them in many cruises by last time I could have used them so will bring next time) and some sort of hair twisty/clip.
Oh...and a travel sized thing of baby powder (great in helping get dried sand off your feet/ankles). All this goes in a beach bag or backpack.

The last time we went to CC (4th of July cruise in 2011), in the afternoon when we were thinking of heading back to the ship it started to POUR rain! Everyone was running for the ship trying to not get soaked. It was warm and nice, but being soaked when we were already so dry would have been uncomfortable. Luckily we hopped on the tram and rode most of the way. but in the line waiting to go back aboard, we got soaked. Ha ha! :rotfl:

So the moral of the story is...if there's a chance of rain and you don't want to get soaked, bring a poncho or umbrella. :)

Doesn't that just grow when you 'splash' water on it?

Sunglasses for everyone, goggles, water shoes (if you need them), camera and that's pretty much it.

Good tip!

Wow....we actually don't bring anything. Wear bathing suits, wear cover up, already applied sunscreen. Sunglasses on my head.....

I grab a towel off the ramp and that's it. KTTW?

In theory, yes. In practice, it's actually quite a bit awkward! :upsidedow

In addition to what's already been mentioned, we take tissues to wipe runny noses and a couple of water bottles. :)

If you want to mail a postcard, $2 cash.

Book, reading glasses, sunglasses, buckets of sunscreen, water bottle.
