It was our first cruise in early Jan 2000 - we were on the Wonder.

We were so disappointed, we booked another cruise so we could get there :goodvibes. We have made it every time since then. :)

We have had 8 opportunities for Castaway Cay in 7 cruises since 2004, all in October. Only missed one time. We did a 4/3 night B2B first week this past October and missed CC on the 3 night. The Captain kept us in calm water that day, but it was a rough ride across the Florida Straits that night! pirate:

Actually it seems to be trending toward January.

Just to put you at ease. We have cruised 10 times mostly January and February and only had CC canceled once in February.

We didn't miss Castaway Cay last March, but I remember one of our servers saying that cruise before ours did, which would have been the 3/3-3/6 cruise.

We've sailed twice at the beginning of March and made it to CC both times.

    This is making me feel good about my June double dip cruise :) I was able to convince DH to spend the extra money for DCL by showing him CC footage.

    I guess it really is hit or miss because we were on the 2/27-3/3 and we made it. I was windy enough though that our Stingray excursion was cancelled.

    We missed January 2006, high winds, it was a big bummer, but we do realize that nature has a mind of her own.

    We leave 2 weeks from tomorrow! I sure am hoping that the majority of those January misses are the beginning of January and not the end!I would hate to miss CC, but I understand it can happen. After six cruises with DCL and two of those double dips, I am 8 and 0 at CC! Meaning, I have never missed it and we have cruised Nov, Dec, Feb, and May! sure hoping this cruise doesn't dash those stats! :goodvibes

    May 2011 we had perfect weather at CC, I'm hoping our May 2012 cruise will be just as wonderful!

    October 5, 2011 so disappointed :sad2: one of the main reasons I booked the cruise was for castaway cay so I was completely bummed. We could see the island out our window, the captain tried several attempts to dock but it was too windy. We spent the day floating at sea.

    3rd week of January, Western Cruise 2006.

    We also couldn't dock at Grand Cayman! :(

    The captain tried for almost 2 hours to dock at CC. It was just too rough.

    The eastern US was getting a bad snowstorm at the time.

    You need to add an option to your poll. Never
    Been on 7 DCLs and never missed CC.
    One time in Sept did have to switch CC and Nassau days but did not miss the island.

    I leave at the end of January, and I really want to stop at CC, so I hope its a go for us! We had friends that missed CC, but it was due to a medical emergency?!?
