I love all your pictures of Castaway Cay. It's gorgeous! What did they think of the Pelican plunge thing?

Have a great trip!

That is funny you knew someone below you.
Parasailing looks like so much fun there.
At least she got to learn to snorkel. Too bad about it not being great.
The jet ski sounds like fun. Glad Claire enjoyed it.
Loved all the pics of the island as you walked around.
I would also stroll along and take in the views.
Nice video. The island looks so peaceful.
Have a great week.

Finally got caught up again. Love all your pics. I would be scared to do the parasailing, but my DD wants to do it. The snorkeling looks fun!

Hope you're having a fun time on your current adventure! I seen your pic on FB, and I was thinking "Where are ya'll headed to now?"

And I'm sure that you weren't surprised the least little bit. The man is known for changing his mind.

Hi there! I just found your TR a few days ago an have been plowing my way through. I finally just caught up! I haven't been reading all of your updates in between trip posts, but I see that you are going to be in Williamsburg this week. I hope you have fun!

I have been on a bunch of cruises, but never Disney. I have been reading the Disney Cruiseline trip reports trying to get a grasp on how different they are from another cruise line. I appreciate all of your pictures!

No Disney trips currently planned

Whew, just finished!

Hi, I just got caught up on your great trip report! I would love to go on a Disney Cruise someday. I usually do Disney trips with my uncle. He initially wanted nothing to do with Disney, and now he wants to go to WDW every year. If I can't talk him in to a cruise in the next year or so, I'll just go myself.

I'm too far behind on all of my subscriptions to comment on everything. But I love your pictures of Castaway Cay (the only reason I'd probably do a cruise). I am caught up and will be ready for the next update.

I know you are having a wonderful time in Williamsburg!

Enjoying getting caught up with all your wonderful pictures at CC. I especially love the ones of the ship that Geoff took. They are great. Sounds like you had a wonderful day on the island. I really can't wait to see it myself.

Great updates!

I'm now officially caught up with all my subscriptions! I fear for Abby's mom when she becomes close to those teen years! She sure is acute little pistol! It's fun to watch kids like that, but I'm sure glad they belong to someone else!

Castaway Cay is so cool, I would love to stay there & just the ship! Heck with the other ports. All of the islands down there have a crappy side & a much smaller great side. We only took the tours offered by the cruise line.

Have a good time in Williamsburg, we love it there. Captain George's was not so good, if that is the seafood buffet. Expensive & so not worth it. It may have changed by now, but the only thing that tasted good to me was the banana pudding.

We have eaten at all of the taverns, the King's Arms is very gourmet, very pricey & good. Chownings is so much fun in the evening. Games & entertainment, Claire would have fun as would you. The Raleigh Tavern Bake Shop has tasty baked goods for a snack or quick breakfast.
