What tours will give you the best pictures for being a first time visitor to these islands?? In St. Maarten I would recommend Bernard's tour. You can book online for $40 per person and they take you all over the island with a lot of stops. You can also arrange a private tour for not much more than that if you have a large group of people. They will let you customize your tour also if you want to skip or add stops.
What's the best tour on Castaway Cay??
Is there buses or cars to take you around the islands?? If so does anyone know how much it costs??
And What is the best thing to do on a 7 night cruise? is there any hidden Mickey's to find? What about secret passages?? We are first time cruisers on the DCL Fantasy and we are on deck 8. Where's the best place to sit or stand for the fireworks and do they have a area for the handicap when this comes around. We watched from Deck 12 on the port side right next to the staircase by the stage. It was a perfect view of the show and the fireworks. Also made for an easy exit when it was over.
What about the picture cd on the Fantasy anyone know the price?
It was $349 for all of your pics on a CD. You could add prints of all of your pics for an extra $50. There was also a 10 shot CD for $149 or a 20 shot for $249.
I can't answer all of them, but I answered some of them in red.

Here is the LINK to the plate.

That... Is... Awesome!

I was looking for an idea of what to do for my partner's 40th and I think I just found it.

What did you use for them to sign with? Sharpies?

EDIT: Doh! Just saw your replies. Sharpies it is.

Another tip...now that Disney is discouraging the over-the-door organizers, I was recently on a Royal Caribbean cruise and used several of those bulldog magnetic clips to hang my organizer on the wall in our stateroom. It worked great! Had to use about 5 clips to keep it up, but better than worrying about damaging the bathroom doors. I plan to do this next summer on our Mediterranean Disney cruise.

Do they still do this?

But some ports you actually legally have to bring your passport off the ship.

We watched from a similar spot; deck 12 near the stage. Get there early. Don't wait. We had 3 kids under 5 and staked out our spot early. We had some complainers that they couldn't get close enough, but my kids are small and needed to be up front to see the stage show. We were also on deck 8. Tip: use the forward or aft elevators rather than mid-ship. It's faster to walk the distance to the elevator than to wait for the crowds at mid. Also, the "Mid-ship Detective Agency" was a big hit. It's a great time waster. Eat dinner at Palo. It's great! Go to the Rainforest Room. Sorry can't help on the islands, we did the western itinerary. Oh yeah. Ride the Aquaduck at night and in port when the lines don't exist. Have fun!!
