    I would be nervous that my husband would be bored because he loves the casino....

    Our kids our 5 and 9 and I really want to go before they get older....

    we have done 4 cruises in the past all non disney...

    I think that I would do a 3 or 4...

    any input would be great...

    I haven't heard of anyone being bored on the ship but if casinos are your thing then you may miss one, however there is good old bingo, check out daves dcl site for examples of the daily navigator to let you know what's going on throughout the day, also bear in mind that with no casino you may get to see more of hubby and really enjoy a family cruise , there are adult only areas with spa, pool, cove cafe etc , wine tasting, sports deck and plenty of other things to do , why not order the DCL dvd from their website and then you can both look at the ship and facilities and see if it's up your street.
    good luck with your planning.

    One thing you will never be on a Disney ship is bored! You are able to do as much or as little as you wish. The navigator is a daily list of all options, and I would be very surprised if there was nothing there for any guests to enjoy. The "golf" tournament in the atrium seemed to attract a fair number of men/boys, and even the ice-sculpture display was well attended. The imagineering series are also very interesting, as are most of the activities. We have never cruised on a ship with a casino, but Im not sure we would have had the time to play.

    Checking out the navigators is a great idea. You can find them on Dave's site: www.dcltribute.com


    If you are taking the 3 or 4 day cruise you'll stop in Nassau. If you husband really wants to do a casino head on over to Atlantis. The groups are beautiful, they have a large aquarium complex known as The Dig (cost is $25 I think for adults - less for kids). You can grab a cab over and your DH can gamble while you and the kids tour the resort/Dig.

    Some people have left their kids in the clubs on board and gone over on their own. Only you know if that is an option for you.

    I found that most of the shows and things I wanted to do started around 2p or 3p and lasted into the night. There were a lot of things I would have liked to have done but they were happening at the same time. I did find the mornings not so involved with activities unless you are into the health and fitness programs. We stayed on board during Nassau to take advantage of the less crowded pools. I travelled as a single parent - no problem keeping occupied during the trip.

    Diversions is kind of a sports bar. They used to have ESPN in the Stack, but now its for teens. So he can go there and catch a game or hang out with some new friends.

    MY DH practiced imitating the guy on the DCL commercial....trying to see how much rest he could get. He also really loved just watching the water go by as we were sailing. Went to Bingo once but found other things he wanted to do the rest of the time.

    We went as all adults and can't wait to go back since there were many activities we missed.

    Here's the link to the Atlantis Hotel

    These are the Art of Entertaining (food, drink hosting), the Art of Entertainment (stage shows) and the Navigator Series (the building and operations of the ship). I don't believe that these are on the 3 and 4 nighters - just on the 7 night cruises.

    It's been about 5 years since I was on a 4 night cruise and we were busy from early morning to way past my bedtime at night. Never have had so much fun!!:hyper: Gotta remember, I'm not into the gambiling, drinking sceen anyway so no casino is not a problem for me.

    Yes - this is what we did on our second Disney Cruise. Just get off the ship, find a cab, negotiate a rate for Atlantis and go!
