Great update! Did you enjoy the food at dinner?

Funny story how I just got my coveted Disney Dooney. We were at WDW last August. I won a sweepstakes actually Well, to help spread out the expenses I bought a few $100 gift Disney Gift Cards in the months leading up to the trip. I accidentally forgot to use one It really was a mistake. Needless to say is was burning a hole in my pocket. I almost purchased a bunch of ornaments at Disneystore.com before Christmas, but resisted.

Well, over President's Day weekend, the Disneystore website was having a 25% off and free shipping promo. And, it was my birthday - so I got this beauty http://www.disneystore.com/adults-do...00777+1000812/ when I showed it to my hubby and mentioned it would only be $12.50 after the long forgotten gift card I can't wait to have it on our 1st cruise!

We did enjoy the food. I took a few pictures of the food, but DH started to make fun of me. So, I put the camera away. I thought long and hard about buyin a Dooney during the Presidents Weekend sale. DH even told me to go try and win the $300 OBC at the DVC presentation so I could treat myself to one. But I never win anything. Oh well, eventually I will get one.

I'm back!!!

Ok, so I dropped the ball on this trip report. I am so sorry. I was actually getting ready to start a pre-trip report for our next trip on the Dream next month when I decided that I needed finish my last trip report first.

So, where was I? Oh, yes we had just finished up breakfast at Royal Palace and we were heading out to see the Princess gathering. Breakfast was neat because while we were eating next to a giant porthole window, we pulled into the Port of Nassau. It was neat to watch us turn the ship 180 degrees and then park next to a few other ships. The other ships in port with us were RCCL Allure of the Seas (huge), Holland America and Carnival Fascination. My son asked "What is so Fascinating about that???" Spoiled little guy.

At the princess gathering, DS decided it was time for himself to go to the Oceanears Lab while we waited in line. The princess line was about a half an hour. Well worth the wait, as each princess spent a decent amount of time with DD. DH had to get into the action and have his picture taken with Cinderella .

After the princess gathering we picked up DS and then we headed out to Nassau. We brought the kids fresh new passports with us and had the port authorities stamp them. If you want info on how to do this, let me know. I am happy to help. Then we had to hit the Straw Market and find DD a perfect straw bag with Tiana on it. She made her purchase and then moved on. We headed for Junkanoo Beach. It is a gorgeous FREE beach that is walking distance from the ship. Mostly locals there. We got a great picture of the kids with the ships in the background.

We spent a little over an hour there and then decided to head back to the ship for lunch. Shhh, don't tell this little secret, but the ship is empty when we are in port. We had no wait for the AquaDuck and there was plenty of prime seating at the pool. So we decided to stay on board the rest of the day. DH and I had been to Nassau and Atlantis several times, so we enjoyed staying on the ship with the kids. DD wanted her hair braided by the pool. The CM did a wonderful job!

We hung out at the pool until it was time to get ready for dinner. That night we were going to Royal Palace!

Junkanoo Beach, as you can see from the photos, is right in front of the ship. When you get off of the ship, go through the port building and turn right. Skirt the shore until you Run into Senior Frogs. Then turn left and go to the next corner (near the Hilton) and turn right. The beach is just on the other side of the Hilton. You can't miss it. There is a small sign saying Junkanoo Beach. Enjoy!

How did you let them know ahead of time about your daughter's special need? I would like to give them a bit of a heads up about my daughter with autism. She has some anxieties and attachments.

What was the temperature outside when you went? Were the pools cold? We're doing the 4 day on the Dream Nov. 11, and being a Floridian, I'm a total lightweight when it comes to cold water!!! Thanks!
