So much to plan and so little time. I just booked a 3 night cruise on Dream leaving 1/31 There's me, an English girl, with my American family, DH, DD (10) and DS (8). This is our first ever cruise, and I am beyond excited, but oh so many questions. I've already found lots of good advice on here, but would welcome any you have. As the trip is so short, I've decided not to go ashore in Nassau, but stay onboard to explore and enjoy the boat. Do you think that is a bad idea? Still planning on going ashore at Castaway Cay (if the boat manages to dock there, have read January can be iffy). Trying to decide whether to take part in the FE, as I don't have much time to get a hanger or gifts, and I need to make door magnets and pirate costumes. When we went to WDW I had lots of time to plan and make stuff, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with this.
