Along the lines of pillow cases etc do you think they would take 1 or 2 small blank canvases to be signed? We'll be starting a family in the near future and thought this would be a cute idea for the nursery

I don't see that they would have a problem with this.
I took a 12x12 photo mat to sign this go round and it turned out beautifully!

Going on our 1st cruise this summer- any hints for excursions in Nassau or castaway cay? Are there beaches nearby in Nassau or do we have to book an excursion?

Last year we did the dolphin swim at Blue Lagoon. This year we did the sea lion encounter, also at Blue Lagoon. Loved both. If you want to hang out at a beach, the beach at Blue Lagoon is nice too. Clean, lots of lounges, hammocks, etc. Loved it. We are considering just doing a beach day there the next time.

We just got back from the Dream, in Nassau we did the sea lions at Atlantis. Loved it!!! Tons of time interacting with them and we had a small group. Guide was great and it was well worth the $.

I need some expert advice......so I keep reading that I need to bring our own mugs/cups but can't decide what to buy. I need something for sodas/water from (for both kids and adults) cabanas but also for coffee? And to make drinks in my room I'm thinking Tervis?? What's worked for you??

I highly recommend Tervis! We will be taking ours again on our next cruise. Love that they keep cold drinks cold for hours and hot drinks hot. And they have such cute designs. I'm hoping to pick up one of the new designs onboard!

Tervis is a great choice. However, if you touch/hold them with sunscreen on your hands, it messes up the finish.

Does anyone know if they still allow you to drop something off at Guest Services to be signed by the characters? I read something in Passporters that said they stopped allowing that.
