The ‘kiddie’ slide.



Our son decided he was going to go for it and ride the Aqua Duck.



There was a 20 minute wait. So we hung around waiting to see him. What we didn’t know was a grandmother was in line and her grandson was too small (or young) to ride alone. She asked Tyler if he would ride with him and he did. Tyler has always had a good heart, especially when kids.









After he got done, we thought we would go see if our room was ready. (It was just about 1:30).

Up next, our room!!
We are looking at having this room on the Fantasy in 2013. I'm so glad you posted the pictures of the balcony and room!!! Was the flag from deck 6 distracting to you when you were in port on the balcony? Any pros/cons of this room that I should know about prior to booking this room? Thanks for the help!!!

We didn't have any problems with the flag. I believe deck 5 and 6 do. We didn't hear it at all. We loved the location. Our daughter tried to book the same room for her cruise next year (but it was booked, but she did get another rear balcony). We loved the location. Close to the aft elevators, an easy trip up to get drinks or food.

I'm booked in this cabin too, the balcony looks amazing! Not quite as nice as the wrap I had on CCL Destiny but it'll certainly hold our extended family (my DS's family is booked next door in the 'inside' cabin - my GD's 1st cruise. Congrats on the new grand child!

thanks to King Richard for steering me to this thread, i've been searching for days here & for some reason this thread didn't come up.

We had a great time in our inside cabin the opposite end of the ship in June, cannot wait to sail again.

Ok, I really suck with these TR lately. Between working full time, going to school part time and now dealing with my mom who has been in the hospital since Thanksgiving, I completely forgot I had a TR here to 'finish'. I've decided I'll do a photo TR to finish this out, since we took another trip right after Thanksgiving and I'm dying to start that one.

Dinner the first night was at Animators Palate!







When we returned to our room (love turndown service).













Tomorrow, Nassau!

Seeing Paradise is beautiful. Some day we may get there.



You don't realize just how big the Dream is until you see it next to another ship









Queen Anne's Staircase. I wanted to do this, glad we did it but no need to do it again. We were doing well, making our way there until we got 'stopped' at the base by a 'guide' who had to tell us all about it and then wanted a tip. It was hot, we just wanted to get going but didn't want to be rude.



Aubre is great at getting my 'best side' NOT!

Hi Patricia!!!

I think I've read a few of your older WDW TR and stumbled upon this one! I'm hoping to take a 3 night Dream cruise this fall and I'm very excited about this report!!!

I'm loving it so far and I'll have to look into that hotel to stay at the night before. They offer free parking? I hear its $60 to park at the port parking garage if not. I live in Orlando so it's not a total must to stay at a hotel the night before but I'll look into it for sure!

Megan, they have a couple different packages, some include the parking some don't. I found a good deal online for the hotel only so it cost $30 for the parking and shuttle. Worth it to me! Definitely cheaper than parking at the port.

I'm so behind on my subscriptions, so I am happy you are going slow!
I did that tour once too. It's Ok, but like you said, don't need to do it again.

After a very HOT walk around Nassau, we headed back to the ship. Oh, but before we could do that, we had, HAD to get our passports stamped (almost forgot again)!



If you haven't gone to get your passport stamped, you need to do this. We had 'instructions', thankfully or would of never, ever figured this out. Before you take the walkway back towards the ships, there is a 'guard shack' to the right of the port. It's right at the 'fenced' area where 'outsiders' can't get in and you can't get out. We asked there and were instructed to go down to this other building, inside, down the hall to the last office. It was pretty deserted in there, but we come to this lonely little office with this very sweet gal who truly, looked at our passports, looked at us and made sure we matched before she stamped them

We saw this cute 'cruise' ship on the way out.



When we got back to our room, it was all made up so nice and pretty again



Tonight is Pirate Night, so we got our invite and bandannas





We had a nice lunch of course (food, oh my goodness, so much food all the time) and then headed to the pool to relax. We met up with our friends, Lisa and Pete at the adult pool and enjoyed some adult time (granted my kids are adults so they came and went throughout the afternoon).

What a great time!!!

I'll have to remember the passport stamp! I was always very excited to see my Dad's passport when he traveled all over Europe when I was little. He would say not every country stamps and I would get so mad that they didn't! I still can't believe I''m 26 and don't have one yet!

Enjoying your TR! We got on the ship rather quickly ourselves. Less than 30 minutes from arrival.
