We docked overnight at Castaway Cay in Dec 2012

Hi,

We were on the Dec 2012 New Years Double Dip cruise.

For our first Castaway Cay day the weather was meant to be windy so the Captain actually came in and docked the night before.

He did this to ensure we would get our Castaway Cay day and as passengers we were very grateful he did it.

The boat just sat overnight and we disembarked like normal in the morning.

No bug problems but it was December.

I finally found them. There's a 4-night on the Dream (Itinerary F) and a 5-night on the Wonder (Itinerary B).

No problems with customs as long as no passengers leave the ship.
Staff and CM's can.
The ship has to be cleared by Bahamian "Authorities" before passengers or guests are allowed off "officially".

As for an overnight stay, how do you round up the passengers that know they "could" stay over night?????

Not gonna happen unless extreme circumstances prevail!

As for the CM that live there, they stay in fly and mossy screened rooms after dark!
They have several buildings interconnected (no bugs) between their "Mess" and Rec room and Accommodation, and sleep under Mosquito nets.
And they do swap between Island duties and Ship Rec work

Good question.

Yes I believe the shops all stayed open.
We docked around 5pm right after the Wonder/Magic (Can't remember which) was leaving so we got to hear horn wars. It was the first time the two ships had met.

We were on the Wonder 7 night Christmas sailing ( Dec. 23-30 2012) and we saw the Dream pulling in as we left. All the passengers were talking about it, but the captain did come over PA to tell that the Dream was pulling I. To overnight at Castaway Cay. Said it was due to the chance of extreme weather the following day, that the dream may of not been able to dock. Great idea. We have overnight end many times before, at other islands. It usually means you can come and go. But I guess that is when it is a planned overnight stop.
