Oh, what a lovely day just relaxing! I like the idea of all that food and all those cocktails!

What a gorgeous color blue, and I love the buildings in Nassau -- they look just like the Caribbean Beach Resort!

What a fabulously relaxing day! I'd take a cocktail and a lounge chair by the pool right about now!

Justin would flip over that basketball court too!

Congrats on ALL the upcoming trips.

The cruise ship looks lovely. I'm a sucker for art deco myself too. I would love to see the shows and castaway cay someday but for now I will just live with getting a peek into others trips.
Oh I am so glad you are!!!!

Thank you! We do have some fun plan, I agree! The ship is really beautiful I have to say. I am looking forward to seeing the new ship next year.

Sounds like it was a great evening. As far as cruises go, I am a bit worried about feeling the boat swaying. But sounds like it didn't really slow you down! I'm afraid I'd be sick.

All that shopping... right up your alley!
It was a beautiful view, that is the truth! Actually, we took a medication, Bonine, but frankly it was only a little that first night, and a little the last night, but really in both cases we both were fine, it wasn't that much movement. And I don't know, maybe the medication really was helping? Either way, I think there are plenty of ways to counter any sea sickness if you get it -- I am not prone to motion sickness, so that is likely also helpful. I remember getting off the boat after the long cruise and feeling like I was still on a boat!

I love your pictures of the decor on the boat, it looks amazing! And lots of shopping, you say?? Hmmmmmm, a cruise is sounding better and better As long as we can keep that boat from rocking that is!
Oh, actually I did take that Bonine (after reading about it and what to take) we did take it all days, so I don't really know if I was effected, or if the medication was helping -- there really wasn't too much sway, just that night, and maybe on our last night, but basically it was fine! I think you would be okay if you took the right precautions. I also have those wrist bands that are supposed to help.

Yeah, I heard about those too! We didn't pursue them, but I might for the longer trip... I have to think about the kids next summer. We took bonine as a precautionary measure. I didn't want to be sick (though I don't know if I would have been... I just didn't want to risk it!)

The water was gorgeous. Wait until you see Castaway Cay!

Well you just need to bring your room key... the "budget" comes in the end when you pay your bill!!! OR "what budget??!!"

I have more great photos you will see next

Yes it makes complete sense, and you are right -- it is like a resort (their resorts) on the sea! It has its own feel, but there are definitely Disney touches. The CM's so very friendly! All the "directors" on board!
Yes, that is his name... Thanks!

Thanks WigD!

The basket ball area is really neat. I love all the Mickey heads everywhere!

You will have a great time I am sure you will love it as a family, b/c you get you time and family time!

We did get off the boat to explore a little, and since we had been to Nassau before, were not rushing to go do anything else really. Atlantis, I was on the fence about treking over there... I think it was simply because it was such a short vacation, and because I really just wanted to relax more than anything, NOT be a tourist if that makes sense, that this time lounging was the right plan for us. BUT that said, I think we will make that trip next time, and definitely with the kids.

Oh, there, you see!!! This is what I was thinking, too!!! Wait until you see Castaway Cay... unfortunately those buildings in Nassau were the only buildings in Nassau proper that were so nicely painted, etc. -- the port area is pretty touristy and the main street filled with cheap novelty shops and hugely high end stuff... I wasn't inspired to shop, just enjoyed walking around and taking in the sights!

The Caribbean Beach theme works really well!

Hello! DH and I try to do these sort of trips during the year at least once or twice, and he refuses to go to Disney without our kids, so this was as close as I could get to that!!! That said, I really would like to take a trip to WDW.. maybe solo! BUT we totally enjoyed the boat, and booked our next cruise (just us) for the same time next year!

We DID bring a bottle of wine with us. We didn't drink it! BUT I will say the regular mixed drinks were $5.50 apiece. The specialty cocktails that they offered were more, but we felt the booze on the boat was reasonably priced... I guess I might bring a bottle of Absolut maybe next time -- to mix with something over ice, but I don't know... That was the fun of the vacation I guess! How exciting you are going again! Would that be July, then?

It is exactly what we needed, and so we felt very lucky to have the beautiful weather. Castaway Cay was also wonderful, but it got windy later in the day.
Cruises can be really busy I think or really slow in pace depending on what you do I guess... The good news is that there is something for everybody! Disney does that right, no question!!!

Beautiful pictures HD!! I always love a blue sky picture! Isn't the adult pool so relaxing and well....quiet? I remember having some wonderful cocktails while my niece was off at one of the programs....she loved doing that and although she only did it one day there is always a variety for all ages. Back to the cocktails.....mmmmm I had such a yummy mojito and some of the flavors of the day
I never really noticed the rocking of the ship...I think once during dinner when I was sitting down but it wasn't enough to bother me
DCL was my first cruise and I think I am forever ruined for any other cruise line!

It was a great place to hang out, YES! There really is so much for kids and adults to do, I agree! I know my boys will really enjoy the activity clubs. At the pool, I had a mango margarita, and a something else that I can't remember now On Castaway Cay I had three conch coolers and a margarita... (well it WAS 2 for one in the afternoon) DH had the same... so.... well, I took a nice nap on a lounge chair at Serenity Bay! More on that day coming up!

On our way again!

So after a nice day and evening docked in the Bahamas, it was time for the boat to set off for our next stop, Castaway Cay!

This evening we had our sheduled dining rotation at Triton's. There are three restaurants aboard the ship. Parrot Cay, Triton's and Animator's palette. because we ate at Paolo's for two nights, we only had our scheduled meal at Triton's. Our dining rotation was the late 8:15 seating, so we went to see the ToyStory show first. That was very cute It was funny seeing the animated characters acted out by CMs! The show was about 40 minutes. We then went back to the stateroom for a short nap! They had already come by to turn down the bed, and here was the towel art friend we had waiting for us!!!



After a short nap, we headed over to the restaurant for dinner. We really enjoyed our meal, and the service as always was wonderful!
The dining room is really pretty. I didn't get a photo, but there is an amazing mosaic on the back wall of Triton and Ariel -- ala little mermaid scene!

Here is the statue in front of the entrance, though!



And one of the stair cases that sweep down in front.



After dinner we headed out to see the Pirate Party! I took these two on deck 10, looking over the party from the rail.





Here are a few more to give you a better idea...






I didn't look for photos, but the buffet and the dessert spread they have out on deck for the Pirate party is amazing! We couldn't begin to eat again (with our late seating) but it looked great! The lines, however, NOT so great! So maybe it is a good thing I wasn't hungry!

We then went to our favorite location, you guessed it! The Outlook Cafe! I never took photos, but here are a couple that show you the inside. It is two levels, with two bars, the one on deck 9 is a coffee bar, the bar on deck 10 more of a traditional lounge. The nights we were there they had live music -- this is the same band they had on the small stage in the adult pool area that evening -- kinda like happy hour before we left Nassau!





Sitting in a couple comfortable chairs, we had a drink and waited for the fireworks! It was so neat to see fireworks at sea!!!!!!! I didn't take photos or try b/c they never come out very well (I really need to get a bigger flash if I want them to come out!) so DH and I just leaned against the railing and watched them go!

When the fireworks ended we made our way to the movie theater to see "When in Rome" that was the evening movie. It was very cute! The movie theater is high stadium seating, and is a great place to see a movie! That started at 11pm, so by the time we got back to the room it was after midnight!

CASTAWAY CAY Here we COME!!!!

Desset buffet:

Evening cocktails:

Fireworks at sea:

The promise of a day at Castaway Cay:

Yep, I am convinced that a Disney Cruise is a little slice of heaven.

Fun evening. It looks like so much to do.

Just FYI, you DON'T want a flash for firework pictures. They are much better with no flash. A tripod though would make them come out better, as the more still/ steady you and your camera are the better they are.
