    Castaway Cay postcards sold on ships?

    I would love to send postcards with pictures from Castaway Cay from the postoffice on the island. But it would be nice if we could write them before we get on the island. Do they sell Castaway Cay postcards in the shops on Disney Wonder?

    I don't recall them selling Castaway Cay postcard on the ship. They do for sure on the island. Also note that you must bring cash to mail anything on Castaway Cay. A post card cost about 54 cents or so.

    Back from the cruise for a while now, it was absolutely wonderful.

    They DO sell a nice Castaway Cay postcard in the gift shop, so I could drop them at the post office on the island right after coming off the ship.

    Also sent one to myself as I was curious about the special Castaway Cay postmark I had heard about.

    The cards took about 2 weeks to arrive in Switzerland, 1 week longer than my friends who dropped them in Cocoa Beach after the cruise.

    Was a bit disappointed about the postmark, as it is just a square stamp that says Castaway Cay, Bahamas. No special design. And the post stamps are regular Bahamian stamps anyway. So I don't see much incentive to drop the postcards on Castaway Cay specifically next time.

    When I sent my postcard to myself - Castaway Cay to So Cal, it almost took a month, so consider yourself lucky!

    I sent a postcard to my friend from Castaway Cay and it took three weeks to get to him! And yes, when I went on the Disney Wonder in the beginning of December I was able to buy Castaway Cay postcards aboard the ship
    ...After a YEAR I finally was able to figure out my password again! I'm baaack! Woohoo!(:
