Oh yes! It will all be listed in the daily Navigator. Usually Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto & Jack Sparrow. Maybe Chip n Dale. I forget now. My kids have lost interest in pics with characters.

Please do not let that scare you off. Have been to CC at least 8 times and no sea lice. I can't imagine it happening on family beach as I have never have seen a jelly fish there. If you get off the ship at any port this is the one you should do. You won't be sorry.

We've never had that issue in 9 stops at CC.

Most ports can be intimidating and you are are pretty much on your own, and almost always have a rundown element to them. Castaway is like pulling in to a Disney resort. It's safe and comfortable and you know what you're getting. It's kind of like being in a real Typhoon Lagoon.

CC is heaven. I"m so sad I won't be there this year since I'm cruising out of Galveston on a 4-night but I plan on being there in February on our next cruise! My favorite thing to do: riding a bike around the island!

Well, this is not a boat accident! I love Jaws, and although I love splashing around in the ocean, I would hate to be eaten by a shark!

That being said, the shark gate at CC probably keeps the sharks out. However, if one is still fearful of sharks, or jellyfish, or sea lice, you are probably safe on the beach, which is beautiful at CC. I have seen a couple of large rodents on the beach before, but they seemed friendly enough!
