    Hi! First time cruisers on Disney Dream! We are a group of 10 and have booked the Catamaran in Nassau. The time says 9:15am - 12:45pm. How long is it to debark and, does someone meet us at the ship or do we have to go through the marina & find them?

    Ahoy Stephanie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so happy to answer your question, but even happier to hear you booked your very first cruise aboard the Disney Dream! Being one of a group of ten cruisers is going to make your voyage such a blast!

    I'm thrilled that you booked the Catamaran Port Adventure in gorgeous Nassau! This will be an exciting adventure that will allow you to enjoy the turquoise waters of the Bahamas and all the tropical sea life living below. There are so many great reasons to book Port Adventures through the Disney Cruise Line. One of them is the organized and efficient way they lead you off the ship. Once you enter your stateroom on embarkation day, there will be an envelope containing tickets for each Port Adventure you've booked in advance for your cruise. Each ticket will have written on it the meeting time as well as the meeting location (on the ship) for that particular excursion. On the day of your Port Adventure, arrive at the meeting location a few minutes before the time noted on your ticket because you will need to check in with your Port Adventure Guide. Once you've checked in, your Guide will lead your entire group off the ship where you will find the transportation to your shore excursion!

    Your first cruise aboard the Disney Dream is going to be unforgettable! Did you know there will be tons of photo opportunities while onboard? If you're not planning to already, try to get your group of ten to bring coordinating shirts or outfits to wear one evening! This will make for such a fun and memorable picture of all of you!

    I'm wishing you a wonderful inaugural cruise, Stephanie! Please visit us again with any future questions!
