Thank you so much for your report and all the wonderful pictures. (We'll be on the Dream 6 weeks from today!) Your daughters are beautiful and I loved reading about you all doing so many things together as a family. I really appreciate the time you took to do this for those of us who are still planning!

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for your trip report. I learned so much from it. I loved everything about it. I felt like I was on the cruise with you. I was even sad at the end when you left the boat. I love the water bike picture, I want to do that so bad. You have a beautiful family.

You're going to love it. it was really interesting and fun. Warning, It was HOT! We had water bottles with us that we had kept cold in the refrigerator in the room. I bought them on board.
ENJOY!!!

What an amazing trip! This is the first TR I've read the whole way through (newbie here!) and I loved it! We're on the Dream in Feb for 4 nights, first time cruisers, so I loved reading about your trip as a first time cruiser. Thanks for sharing, your family is lovely!

Couple of questions - Did you guys use passports or Birth certificates w picture ids? I am really not wanting to fork out $700 for passports unless it is necessary. Also, your trip sounds fantabulous!! Of all that you did, what all did you have to pay for out of pocket (especially at CC)?

Congrats on all of your celebrations!!

DD21 used BC with drivers license The rest of us had passports. We only had to show the bc at the terminal.
We only paid for alcohol drinks & drink tasting. On CC we bought are own snorkel. So nothing out of pocket.

Great trip report. I loved all the photos and information. We're going on a 3 night in Oct. I have a couple of quick questions.

How long were you off the ship in Nassau? We're not planning any excursions and were planning on spending more time on the ship but would like to get off for a little bit. Anything you recommend with an 11 & 6 yr. old.

You said you booked your cruise through your Travel Agent, when you rebooked onboard were you still able to book through that same Agent or did you just book directly through Disney? I like our agent and if we want to rebook I want her to be involved again.

Thanks!

We got off the ship right after breakfast and jumped back on for lunch so around 3 hours. We all really enjoyed Fort Fincastle and you get a great view of the island from up there. Many people go to Pirate Musuem. It is really close by the ships and I hear it's fun. It's not free

At the booking desk I told them to please place it with our TA. They already had her on our file since she booked it. It was no issue. If anything just be sure to tell your TA that you booked on board so that she can make sure that she gets the reservation.

I'm sure you will all have an AWESOME time
