    I have booked a 3 night Bahamian cruise. When we have the day at Bahamas, would the ship drop us off at the beach in the morning and leave us there until 5.45 or do we have the possibility of coming back earlier if the kids are tired? Thanks!

    Hi Laura!

    Thanks so much for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  You've got an awesome cruise coming up... how exciting!

    When you dock at the port, you are free to come back to the ship anytime between All Ashore and All Aboard time.  If you are joining one of the many exciting Port Adventures, just make sure you are well aware of where to meet the motor coach (or your noted mode of transportation) to head back to the ship. There might be specific pick up times that your guide will advise you that morning.  Kids might not do too well waiting at a stop for their ride back to the ship... especially, when they're tired and possibly cranky.  

    Nonetheless, it's always nice to arrive back on board early.  It'll give you enough time to shower and change - and most especially, you can take a much needed power nap for you and the kids!  But you never know, the kids might actually just shower & change, and hit the Youth Clubs.  Then, the adults can just bask more under the sun on the deck.  Relaxing!

    Have a magical day!
