Someone asked if there were towels other than on the pier when you get off the ship -- no there aren't. There are bins by the bathrooms/outdoor showers for you to drop your dirty/wet towels however, so you don't have to carry them back onto the ship.

There's a tram to Serenity Bay, the adult beach. Also, the food choices there are often different from Cookies BBQ (better even!).

My husband and I went on the Dream this summer without our kids (gasp!) and had a lovely time at CC adults only beach-even had a conversation with Captain Jack Sparrow! Had the beach to ourselves until around 1100am and by then we were heading towards the BBQ-they have more adult food there (I am thinking maybe grilled salmon or some kind of fish). I love my 2 children very much but this was something I will always remember fondly-just my husband and I enjoying the beauty of CC and enjoying a day at Epcot when we got off the ship!
You will love it!

There are at the counters where you rent floats and snorkels. I got a whole bunch of them at the shack where you return bikes at Serenity Bay. I just asked and they asked how many.

We were just there 3 days ago, and we were told when we got off the ship that that was our only opportunity to get towels. That is not the case. There are 2 information booths, and you can get towels there. The lady working the booth was shocked that we had been told we could not get them on the island at all.

AGREE!! And, the drink-of-the-day was 2 for 1 that last hour lol. I wished we could stay there into the evening.

That was me. Thanks! I'm glad to know this because I would have just assumed it was like a pool at a resort and towels would be available in multiple locations. I won't pass by the towels at the pier now.

Between your reply and Neg58's further up in this thread, I'm now feeling like I've just uncovered the best kept secret of Castaway Cay! lol.

thanks for the info!!
