To start off with our Castaway Day, here's some of our pics taken by the photographers.



























OK, so not only can you tell that I'm a picture freak with my camera, but I buy every darn picture they take!!

Here's a few pics I took from our "secret deck" before we left.










We make our way towards the Post Office, & see Donald!

I love seeing your pics. I am so excited for our cruise on 5/7!! My girls are going to freak out when they get to be with the dolphins. Thanks for the great pics. I wanted to ask, does the place take any random photos of the participants or just the poses (kiss, hug, splash, etc)? You have such great photos of your girl interacting with the dolphin I am wondering if my DH or I should have booked the observer so we could get better pics. Also, were you told about no sunscreen and jewelry? Did everyone fry up in that sun?? I plan on having my girls wear those surf shirts to protect their shoulders. Alos, when did you eat your snack/water? Can you eat on the ferry ride or at the site? Sorry for so many questions! Loving your report!

I don't mind answering questions.

Photos: Yes, they only take the posed photos. If you're booked on the observer, you can take your own photos from the deck. So yes, one of you need to book the observer in order to get some of your own interaction photos. It is really worth it because the observer is only $45.

Jewelry & sunscreen: Yes, they did tell us about the no jewelry/no sunblock. My DD had on some earrings, and I just put them in our little beach bag that we brought with us.

Sun: It wasn't bad at all when we went, and the boat that you take to & from the island has covered seating, so you won't be stuck in the sun while on there.

Wet suits & lifejackets: They do provide those for you, so you won't have to lug around anything to be worn in the water

Snacks/Water: We brought these with us and ate them on the boat after our excursion. The boat ride back to the ship takes about an hour. So after a few hours on the excursion, we were glad we brought those snacks & water to hold us over.

We see all the little fun toys they have for the water: aqua trikes, paddle boats, etc. I want to ride the tricycle thingy! But we didn't have any excursions booked. I came across a little booth that they had set up, so people that didn't book these excursions could do it there, so we wouldn't have to walk all the way back to the ship to the excursions desk. Great idea!

The prices were great for a little something to do, especially since the water was cold, we were not planning on getting in. So we get suited up with life jackets and we're on our way. It was so much fun, but a lot of foot work. But it was totally worth it.

Seeing all your wonderful photos makes me want to be at CC right now! I love that island.

I do have a question for ya. Do you have a big stick at home to beat off the boys that come a calling for your daughter? I'm sure you are going to need one if you don't already have one! She is just so darn cute and very photogenic! Good job mom!

Yeah, we were trying to get as close to the ship as we could. They reminded us of the barriers to not cross.

Thanks! This would be me with DD and a boy!

She's pretty good right now with not worrying about boys, but next year in High School, it's probably going to be a different story!

After we got tired (and hot) from the Aqua trike, we decided to head to Cookies for some lunch. We took a few pics along the way.

After we eat at Cookies and relax a little, we decide to go back & ride the peddle boats this time. We got a little further out this time & closer up to the Pirate's ship.






















Don't ask....







Coming up: The last night of our cruise. We don't want to go home!!
