A majority of cruisers on this voyage were Castaway Club members aka not their first Disney Cruise, and therefore they elected to stay on the ship in Nassau.
A Marching Band officially welcomed the Dream to Nassau
Lisa went to the spa and really enjoyed it--I worked this morning--but I have a date with the spa on my next cruise!
We both went to a DVC meeting--they have these on every cruise, with special deals if you buy or add on to your points. They usually have fun giveaways too.
We then took the "Art of the Ship" tour--it was great! We learned how the tiniest decorations add to the ambiance and story for each part of the ship.
After that--lunch time! Cabana's is a really really long buffet with lots of choices. My camera battery died but before it did I got shots of these guys at Cabanas:
Mine Mine Mine!
After lunch it was time to pick up our pre ordered merchandise! I order some items for myself and a couple of fun things for a certain event in May. . . .
I am a gold castaway club member (more than 5 Disney cruises) and all the gold and platinum members (more than 10) were invited to a talk by Tom Staggs, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts (and presides over the company's worldwide vacation and travel businesses). It was very informative.
Tonight the show is "Villians tonight" and we chose to try to go to the 5pm show as that worked better with our schedule. there happened to be room for us--availability to do this will vary with each sailing.
Tonight is Pirate night-so some people do dress up--there is also a show with characters at 8 and Club Pirate with fireworks on the deck at 10:30
We ate in Animators Palate and instead of the regular show they are showing different pictures of Pirates
Mickey's Pirates in the Caribbean Party
The Aquaduck is ready for Pirate night
Club Pirate is more adult
with Captain Jack and fellows like this
There is always a buffet at night after the pirate party. One thing is for sure, you will not go hungry on a cruise!
