What to do in ports or on ship
We are not planning on booking any port excursions for our upcoming cruise on the Dream. 21 days woohoo! Are there enough things to do on the ship to keep us busy? Or are there things to do in the ports without booking excursions? Any ideas/advice would be appreciated. First time cruisers. Thanks

We are doing the 4 day Dream in August.
We are also planning to stay on the ship on the Nassau day and take advantage of the Aqua Duct. May let the kids go into the kids club too for a bit. I heard about the straw market in Nassau that you can walk around which we may do too.
We will be getting off at Castaway Cay and enjoying the day at the beach!

Just got off the Disney dream for the four day itinerary. We did get off in Nassau and attempted to walk around the straw market, but I don't find it that impressive unless you're planning on trying to buy a cheap trinkets. There was a time of my life when I actively sought out cheap trinkets and I would've loved that place. This was not the day. Plus they make you go through this cruise terminal where all the passengers of all the cruise ships have to go through both out into Nassau and back. So we spent a whopping hour in Nassau and couldn't wait to get back on the boat. Once we did we had Cabanas to ourselves, and although we didn't try to ride the aquaduck that day, we did notice that the pool areas were generally less crowded than they were on the sea day. Finally, our weather was a bit overcast that day in Nassau, so we decided to use that as an opportunity to go watch one of the free feature films provided in the theater.
So, to answer your question, if you plan well enough there are plenty of things to do both outside on the decks and inside the interior parts of the ships if you know what you looking for.
