Pre-cruise planning

I'm a planning fanatic.. trying to figure out what my next steps are..

- hotel booked in Port Canaveral
- using hotel transporation to get to the terminal

- most likely staying on ship at Nassau
- no plans for purchasing activities at CC

- clothing for pirate night in progress
- princess dresses for kids purchased

- online checkin not until mid June

What else am I missing right now!!!??

For adult type activities
Palo brunch or dinner ressies
We loved the rainforest room. You can reserve day passes in advance.
On line check in at midnight of your check in date. If you want an early port arrival time and boarding number to maximize time on the ship!

For CC, think about budgeting for floating mats/innertubes. My son and my cousin's kids really enjoyed having those.

If an adult in your party is a runner/jogger/fast-walker, consider the casual but organized Castaway Cay 5K. There's a whole thread around here about it.
