    Disney Cruises

    Ok Linkers!

    Who's been on any of the Disney Cruises???

    The V family (me, wife, 14yo daughter and 10yo son) will be hitting not only our first cruise, but our first Disney Bahama Cruise... 4 nights on the water, and 3 nights at WDW...

    Look forward to reading about any previous Disney Cruise experiences you may have had...

    A cruise is still on my bucket list. But if you have kids I hear Disney is awsome. Don't they have their own island?

    Did this several years ago and had a great time. The service staff was top notch. Food was good and plenty of activities for the kids.

    V, when are you going??? We're going in February! We've been on cruises before, but not Disney. A friend went on this cruise last year, and had a great time with her kids. They have activities for the kids so the adults can have some kid-free time, too. Our kids are 10 and 6 and have never been on a cruise. They have no idea about this, yet. They're getting new luggage for Christmas, and I'm putting a picture of a Disney cruise ship inside.

    From all reports, the best part of the cruise is Disney's private island. What is it - Castaway Cay? I think that's it. There is a giant Mickey Mouse head sunk in the water for people to snorkel/dive around. Naturally, I am pumped up to get up close to the Flying Dutchman. There are lots of fun things to do on the island for everyone.

    My husband and I have been to Nassau a couple times now. It's honestly not that impressive. You think you're going to see paradise because you're in the Bahamas, but it's just not the case here. I suggest going to Atlantis as one of your excursions, and get tickets to use their water slides since you're bringing the kids. You can also just go there on your own and walk around the place, which is what we did last year. It is quite something to see. There is also a new Pirates of Nassau Museum at the other end of the tourist area. For Nassau, it's pretty good. I may be biased. I love me some pirates. But really, it's not bad. They did a good job with it.

    Ah, we'll be getting on that ship when your family gets back. We're doing Thursday-Sunday. We'll miss each other by one day!

    should see if you can stash some trinket on the ship for Shari and her family to find on their cruise! Or maybe bury something on the island! Not sure if there'll be a gap between your cruise and hers where she'll be on vhlinks so you can clue her in on where to find it, though.

    Hee hee! Make a giant Chickenfoot logo on the beach! LOL Too bad it wouldn't be there when I got there.

    We'll be at a Disney hotel for a couple days before the cruise, so I may be able to get online. We're not planning to bring the laptop at this point, but who knows.

    So, how was your cruise? Were you able to go to Castaway Cay? I heard the weather was bad and the waves were too rough for the two cruises before us to go there. I hope you got something good for compensation!

    We were really lucky. Our day there was clear and 74 degrees. They said it was the best weather they'd had since December. They had canceled our Stingray Ray's feeding thing, tho. Apparently the area had been damaged by the storm that went thru previously.

    The Magic cruise which was to leave Castaway Cay on 2/12 and reach port on 2/13 was stranded at Castaway Cay due to weather and did not port until 2/14...

    Our Wonder cruise was from Sunday night (2/14) thru Wednesday night (2/17)...

    We hit the beach at Nassau for an hour or so (no thank you, we don't need out hair braided!), but Castaway Cay was way too windy to go into the water, so I just laid on a beach chair and ordered numerous Drink of the Day Specials...

    Deck 9 was often because the weather was so cool... I basically hung out at the bar under the teen club, since the bartender Yelena was a trip...

    We were in 5126

    After doing this for the 1st time, I clearly would not do it again in February and would go for the 7 night cruise next time and just skip slumming it at WDW for three days...
