Hey Pershing, I am leaving on Saturday for my family vacation on the Cape. Was wondering if you know if there are any water parks around. DS5 asked if there was I only know of the one when you first get in to the Cape. I am staying in Dennis and don't really feel like driving back 45 minutes. But of I will if I have to. Any info would be great Thanks Tom

You're thinking of Water Wizz and yeah that's the only water park in the Cape's vicinity.

I would encourage DSS to pick up a boogie board and head to a beach like Nauset on the Ocean. You know, God's natural wave pool!

The Ocean's been pretty warm, but the wind has kicked up today so bring sweaters. Sorry to say the traffic is miserable. I went to Hyannis yesterday for a doctor's appointment and ran into slowdown's everywhere.

Hope you have a great VK. If you're in Orleans, stop at The Hot Chocolate Sparrow and say hi!

I also live in MA and go to the Cape frequently (my mom has a place there). We have made a trip to Water Wizz in Wareham each summer since 2002 and went there two weeks ago. It was so disappointing this year! The bathrooms have always been a little suspect (smelly and wet floors), but this year was worse than others. We also found the camp and club day trip kids to be unsupervised and they were pushy and obnoxious. My kids are 6 and 7 and I was with them at all times and the "camp kids" were constantly pushing them out of the way. The people at the lazy river were pretty good about correcting them, but the mat slides were completely chaotic and the kids were so rude. The wave pool was scary as well, my kids are good swimmers, but I never left their side because the unsupervised kids were everywhere and kept raming into us, so I ended up being a human shield. It was so dissapointing as we've always had a good time, but I doubt it'll be on our "to do" list for next summer... just a heads up for you!

First thing that went into the car were the boogie boards. My kids live on them on the Cape. Just looking for a day trip, told the kids we will do the bumber boats and go-karts in harwich instead. Just as happy. Also will be that way on thurs when i play golf at the Captains course will try to stop by.
Also MKJMom thanks for the info, One thing I loved about Typhoon lagoon is that there are CM's there to help the smaller kids so they don't get pushed around.

My DD6 and I are going on our first cruise. We are so excited. This is our spring break in Maine, the Patriots day thing. We are traveling with my parents who will be first time cruisers as well. Looking forward to talking with fellow cruisers.

Many Questions

Thanks for the welcome. My DD and I have already looked at planning excursions. Anything that is fun and having to do with shopping. At 6 she already loves to shop. Also my parents are going with us, but booked on a seperate ressie, will they be our tablemates or am I going to have to call DCL to set that up. I wouldn't mind being put at a table with them and others as well. Any tips for a first timer would be awesome. Hopefully someone out there has a daughter around mines age. She will be 7 next June. It would be cool for her to know someone before she got on the boat.

Here's another welcome to MEdisneyfan!

My DDs will be 5 and 7. They will all be in the same club!

It's our second cruise (did the Western in January) so feel free to ask questions, especially about the kids activities. I asked about a million before we cruised.

We did the butterfly farm in St. Maarten and loved it. We're thinking of doing that again for the April 07 trip. I think our DD would enjoy it.

I will have to look into the Butterfly tour. I bet that she would love that. She also wants to do the submarine tour on St. Thomas. Is it a good tour?

You could probably do the Butterfly Farm tour on your own for less $$$ but when we did it we enjoyed being driven around and then being taken directly to the shopping area. We enjoyed it. It could be educational -- there were a lot of kids there who seemed enjoying the learning aspect of the farm but there were also more people like us who were just wandering around taking photos of the beautiful nature. It is one of our fondest memories of our honeymoon.
