    Love this board!! Heading to POFQ in Sept and booked a 3-night cruise. First time cruisers! Can we bring beach toys from home for our 5 & 7 yr old to use when we stop at Castaway Cay and Nassau?

    Hi Chantal,

    So glad that you find the panel helpful - we just LOVE being here!  Congratulations on booking your first cruise, and you've picked one of my favorite months to sail.  September lends itself to nice warm weather, low crowds and even lower rates!

    If you've got the room in your suitcase - go ahead and pack those beach toys.  We actually bring our own toys and snorkeling gear - and find that it saves us a bundle!  One of the other options that I've used is ordering the kids a gift basket from Shirley at - she makes the most wonderful and customizable baskets, many of which include beach toys.  I have had wonderful experiences every time I have ordered from her, she is incredibly accommodating and easy to work with.  If you find yourself without the extra room, or time to order a gift basket - rest assured that beach toys will be available for sale on Castaway Cay.

    Hope this helps - have a great trip!
