Hello everyone, I am pretty new to this whole world of cruising. Recently we started thinking/dreaming/planning of a Disney Cruise probably in February 2014, maybe March. My son will be 4 years old then. In fact, this is how we would like to celebrate his birthday which is on February 14th. He is only 2.5 years old now, but he recently became the biggest Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck etc. fan. He is practically addicted to it, so is his mom to this whole Disney Cruise thing, and Daddy is getting there too. Anyway, none of us has taken any cruises yet, nor have been to the Caribbean region. So this shall be the first time for all of us in all aspects. We were thinking either a 4-day Bahamian cruise or a 5 day Western Caribbean cruise (with stops at Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico) out of Miami would be something good to start with. We do not like when it is super hot, we just need mild temperatures, even if we have to wear a sweater in the evening, we are fine. I assume weather-wise the Caribbean one would be better. Are the pools heated on the ship? Those who have already taken one and/or both of these cruises, what were your experiences? How about safety both on ship, and on land? I am asking these especially in terms of the Bahamas when the ship docks in Nassau. I am a bit concerned. How safe is it to walk around in the city? How about shore excursions? Are they worth the money? The Atlantic looks tempting, although pretty expensive. Has anyone tried a submerging boat? It would be cool to take a peek whats under the water, but I am not a diver, and I would be afraid of going down to the bottom with a submarine. Any thoughts of experienced cruisers?
