Oh, you got to "swim" with dolphins too. Cool! The boat you took to get there doesn't look like a catamaran though. Catamarans are usually very low boats, with a net between "boat parts" at the front.

Sounds like a very fun and exciting day, ending with fireworks at sea!

Looks like you had a great Nassau day, the dolphin encounter looked like lots of fun So after your experience you were free to wander around? We have the early morning encounter and I was wondering what we would be able to do afterwards before we catch the boat back.

Love the D&B wristlet, the cruise designs look really nice. Were you tempted by any other bags?

Pirate Night looks like so much fun. What side of the ship were you on? I have heard that the starboard side can see the fireworks from their balconies.

Awesome updates Emma!

You looked great in the Pirate costume!

Speaking of the lifeboat, we had heard that the night before, the CM's had their CM party and that a few of the CM's got REALLY drunk and it affected their performance the next day, which may have included this incident Crazy.

Anyways, can't wait to hear your next update!

Thank you! I really was surprised more adults weren't dressed up - some people were though & most people at least had the bandanas on or a piratey tshirt!
We got our costumes from a fancy dress website called escapade.co.uk - they had a huge selection on there, Steve's was actually a Disney one and mine was called 'Victorian pirate', they were about £35 each.. so now we have costumes ready for any fancy-dress parties we might go to in the future! Mine was very short though so I wore leggings with it lol.

The dolphins were amazing! Up close to them I realised that they are definitely mammals, not fish! So intelligent and friendly

That must have been neat to have seen the garbage leaving the ships. I wonder if the DCL do behind the scene tours. If they don't they should! I bet you a lot of people on the boats would do it.

I love your pirate costumes. I think it's great that you dresseed up even as adults. I think more adults should have gotten in the spirit and dressed! Why should it be only kids!?

I love the fireworks at sea idea. And it was to the music of POTC! That is even better!
Hi! I'm not sure if DCL does a backstage tour ... it'd be fascinating though, I would love to see in the kitchens - must be huge to feed 4000 people, almost 24 hours a day!
Lol we felt pretty self-conscious about being in the full costumes to start with, I even worried people might think we were crew members but it was a great memory and I'm kinda glad we did dress up!

The Aquaduck was so much fun! I wish we'd had a chance to do it at night too because that must be quite a different experience
The dolphin swim was another highlight of our honeymoon that we'll always remember

Thank you for reading along so far lol sorry you got choked up a few times!

Thank you! lol it was really nice to meet Mike, the pocaster, he was so friendly - I think the Be Our Guest Podcast had a big group on our cruise, I noticed a few tshirts with the show's logo on!

I went on a Carnival cruise with my family when I was 18 and HATED it (everything felt cheap and dirty). So much so that I thought I never would feel the urge to go on a cruise again. But your gorgeous photos make me want to try a Disney Cruise, it looks like you guys had so much fun!
Thank you so much for reading so far! I'm enjoying writing about each day and remembering it all
I'm not sure how we'd find other cruise lines now.. would be hard not to compare everything to DCL!

Hi Mel, you're right - that wasn't a catamaran was it! Not sure why I called it that hehe.
Fireworks show at sea was definitely something we'll always remember - Disney is apparently the only cruise line that does this

Thanks Stefy! - Yes, after the dolphin encounter, we could have stayed at Blue Lagoon (the last boat was at 4pm back to the ship) - there was a beach, cafe and souvenir shop

Originally I looked at the white DCL wristlet, but they only had a couple on display and the 'placement' wasn't very good, lots of half characters! But I liked the blue one too, I now have that one and the white WDW wristlet. The larger bags look great too but I'm not sure how much I'd use one at home (it would be too precious! ) and they are a lot of $$$s! all so lovely though, was quite tempted by the 40-year anniversary designs too.

Our stateroom was on the starboard side, and I think as we got that note about not leaving things on the verandah that we might have been able to see them? We were close to the extended part of Cabanas though so I'm not sure how much we'd have been able to see as the deck above hung over a bit!
One thing we didn't think about was that as the ship was moving, the fireworks were more towards the back of the ship, guess they were being blown by the wind that way? Very cool show though, wish I had the soundtrack!

Hi Alicia! Wow.. really?! I bet those crew members were in a lot of trouble after that lol - I noticed the crane at port canaveral when we disembarked, guess they were trying to fix it asap... but apparently the next cruise sailed with that lifeboat completely removed!

Ah right cool We were thinking about watching them on the verandah, but I feel like we should go up top and see them.

Am sure you could find the soundtrack on the net somewhere, or maybe even here

Ooh you must post your D&B purchases, love seeing new Dooneys

Your TR has been quite an enjoyable read! We also had our honeymoon at WDW and on a Disney Cruise to the Bahamas in 2009. We even had our wedding at WDW... I am a little Disney obsessed

I can't get over how absolutely beautiful the Dream is! What an amazing ship! Watching the storm at night sounds like such a neat experience. Since my biggest fear is drowning though, I imagine that I would be a bit freaked out! When I went to Nassau a few years back, we did a dolphin encounter, too. It looks very similar to the place you went. Maybe it was the same one? You two look great in your pirates costumes! It sounds like such a fun night!
