Well since we are flying i don't think that we will bring any drinks. Plus i know that we will already be paying for an extra bag so i think i will just have to hope that i get a bartender that has no problem making the drink.

Sounds good to me. I am so glad me and my DFi have decided to stay on the ship when we get to Nassau b/c i think he will be tired from the parks i on the other hand am use to them but i think i may tire him out but that will give us a chance to enjoy our veranda since i have never had one before.

We're either going to stay on the boat in Nassau or book the Aquaventure excursion. I've been to Nassau before but have never seen Atlantis and the waterpark looks awesome!! But its on the pricey side so we're not sure yet...

Hello!! My DH and I are also going on this cruise, it is for our 5th Wedding Anniversary! I will be spending a week at (Gasp!) Universal first for my work conference, going on the cruise, and then joining DH's family at Saratoga Springs for a week of free dining (we booked a bounceback last year). This will be our first cruise, and I'm super excited! DH thinks that he will be bored, but I'm not worried about that at all since it seems like there is so much to do!

In Nassau, I don't think we will get off the ship as I have heard some not so good reviews from people that have gotten off there. We might possibly go to Atlantis, but it seems very expensive, and I would really like to relax between my work conference (though i'm sure there will be some time for fun at Universal!) and the week long vacation at Disney. I LOVE Disney, but DH's family goes practically commando style, and it does get tiring after a few days...

Anyways, I thought I would just chime in since we will be joining you on the cruise!! Only 245 days left!

Welcome aboard!

Is this your first cruise ever or first cruise with DCL? Your DH will NOT be bored. I've never sailed with DCL but I can tell you from being on other cruises, there is never a time where there isn't something going on. It is what you make of it!

I've been to Nassau once before and got off the ship to go to Senor Frog's. I did not feel comfortable walking from the ship to the restaurant. People kept approaching us and somebody even tried to sell us cocaine. Unless I can go with a large group, I'm staying on that ship!

I'm super excited!

It is our first Cruise ever!! For DH, this is one of his very few vacations anywhere besides Disneyworld, although it is still a Disney Cruise and we are going there after...i'm trying to get him to branch out!! I know that he won't be bored, but try telling him that!! He just isn't used to do anything different.

That's pretty much the same thing i've heard about Nassau. If I find a great shore excursion I might do it, but I don't think we will venture off on our own. I'll just spend the day at the pool with some drinks and exploring the boat!!

Welcome! I have been on this cruise once before and I was 18 when we went and I did not get bored so if an 18 yearold didn't get bored i don't think your DH will either. I am doing the 7night land and sea with my DFi for our honeymoon and my DFi is excited to go on the cruise b/c it will be his first cruise. I have been on 3 cruises and everone has stopped in Nassau and evertime i have gotten off the ship and seen Atlantis so we are staying on the ship when we dock in nassau this time. I don't feel like getting offered everuthing under the sun on my vacation. You will enjoy the cruise the service is typical Disney they will do anything you need them to and the Private island makes the whole trip worth it.

I'm debating on going to Atlantis or staying on the boat, enjoying the pool and a frozen drink. I absolutely cannot wait to go to Castaway Cay. I think we're going to do the Extreme Getaway Package so we can get a sample of everything the island has to offer.

Mkasch - Are you first or second seating for dinner?

Atlantis is fun but have extra money with you the food is expensive we are doing the fishing excursion on castaway cay and then going to serenity bay for the rest of the day it always looks empty even during the summer so it will be like having your own beach and they have a place where they have the food that they have on the family beach so that you can eat lunch there instead of riding the tram back to the family beach.

If we do the Disney excursion to Atlantis, I'm pretty sure lunch is included. I've heard Atlantis charges a LOT for food and they don't take cash. What's that all about??

Yes, I also read that lunch is included on the Disney excursion, and that the food is super expensive there -- someone said on another thread here that they paid $30 for 3 hotdogs and 3 gatorades. That's nuts! I am excited that you can bring your own liquor on Disney cruises -- I'll be in Orlando the whole week before my cruise, so I should be able to scout out a good liquor store to get some for fun drinks!

Jenny -- we have the 2nd seating. I heard that it is less rushed, plus we normally eat a little later anyway.

Ah man, I have the first seating. I looked at your profile and noticed we're the same age, so I was hoping we'd be grouped at the same table! But you're both at second seating so maybe you guys will sit together!

I'm going to try to bring my own liquor too. I was thinking maybe sangria or wine. Yum!

Yeah the food is super expensive we did the beach excursion to Atlantis on another cruise and food was included and it was good that it was b/c it would have costed us an arm and a leg to eat. However if you have never been there it is worth going to see once the ruins are cool. Yeah maybe we will sit together we also booked the second seating since the last disney cruise we went on we were in the second seating and it seemed like there were more adults in that one and less children. I wish i could bring the stuff to make the drinks cuz i have a feeling the bartender may look at me like i have 2 heads if i ask for a Goombay Smash.
