Disney_Alli, DH and I and our parents all have second seating, I just couldn't see any of us being ready for dinner at 5:30 the late dining just seemed like it would work better for us all.

Wow, that's a looong flight! Hopefully one of these years DH and I will be able to see the beautiful countyside for ourselves.

We thought main seating would be better since my DD maybe too tired for the later seating. That is the last thing I want is a tired child at the table.

Has anyone else been thinking about excursions? For me it's never to early to do some planning!! We are not too keen on nassau but I've been reading about the dolphin encounter on blue lagoon island and just wondered if anyone had done this?

Hey Gall! Are you talking about the blue lagoon excursion for Nassau? If so, our cruise does not stop in Nassau. Our itineray is St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Castaway Cay.

I see that there is a Dolphin Encounter for St. Thomas that is out of Tortola (my favorite island!)

It looks like an amazing excursion!
