Aquaduck Wait Times?

Might be a silly question, but...Are wait times posted at the Aquaduck (Dream) like wait times are posted at Disney World? I'm picturing long waits on our cruise in August...
How will we know if it's worth it to wait (or if we have enough time before heading to a scheduled activity such as a MDR dinner)?

They do at the beginning of the line. I wouldn't wait more then 15-20 minutes. I waited 45 minutes when we were docked in Nassau then rode again the next day while at Castaway Cay with less then a 10 minute wait.

wow - OK so it was that long of a wait when you were docked in Nassau!?! I would think that that would be a great time to ride it with a lot of people being off of the ship : (

We decided if we could see the line it was too long for us. It's 5-10 minutes of line inside and then down the stairs and you can only see those waiting on the outside stairs.

We had no problems riding it at 9am on Castaway Cay day - rode 6 times in a row and could have ridden more.

When we got back from Nassau we got to ride a couple times without a wait and it got busier & busier as day went on.

Someone posted about wearing water shoes and I agree. If you have to wait outside on the stairs it is HOT (I was on dream - don't know if they fixed this on fantasy).

And definiteley at night when dinner/shows are going on the lines are tiny.

My DT and I waited 40 min after Castaway Cay. On a 3 day, it was our only option left and we were already still in swimsuits so we came aboard and got in line. It wasn't so bad. Junglebook was playing on Funnel vision.
