There’s a trolley from close to the ship that has a few stops, one of which is next to the family beachHow far is the walk from the ship to the family beach? We don't mind walking but my Mom is coming & we don't want her to overdo it. Also anyway Castaway Cay tips will be appreciated as we're first time cruisers
I think it really depends on the OP's mom, and the OP should have an idea of what she can comfortably handle. I took my mother on a Disney cruise a few years ago, and she had no trouble getting to the tram. Walking to and from the beaches without the tram would have been too much for her, but walking between the tram and the ship was fine & she enjoyed the leisurely walk. It's very individual, what a person can handle.that walk from the aft gangway to the the tram only.. It is about 701 feet. For me with mobility issues I've had in the past that is a tough distance to cover on foot specifically going back to ship. So like I said before request a cart from the family beach area to take your mom.
You would think they would keep the aft one open instead of mid... I'm sure there must be a reason.
I really enjoy being on the port side of the ship and watching the island operations. Beginning in the mid afternoon, especially after Cookies closes, they use the aft for putting things back on the ship. I assume they use the aft because it’s closest to the cargo storage areas.You would think they would keep the aft one open instead of mid... I'm sure there must be a reason.
This always kind of annoyed us. We book aft rooms and after a long day, you have to walk the length of the ship twice just to get back to your room. I don't know the reasoning for it either.
