    Multiple questions: 2-adults, 4 night, disney dream cruise bahamas. 1) What should I go to & reserve as soon as I get on the ship? 2) What excursions should I go to if I am not a strong swimmer.

    Welcome aboard, Anjali! Most of the special activities and events that require an advanced reservation will be available for guests to book online before the sailing even begins. Be sure to log into your reservation when your online check-in begins at 75 days prior to sailing for first time guests. There, you'll be able to make Adult Exclusive Dining reservations if you'd like to dine in Palo or Remy (Palo is my favorite! Try the brunch for sure!), book Port Adventures in Nassau or Castaway Cay, make Spa Reservations, and now even pre-reserve some special character meet and greet times. Since Castaway Club Members who have sailed with Disney before can book these extras earlier than first time guests, I'd recommend marking your calendar now for your 75 day mark and log in that day ready to make any must-have reservations, Anjali.

    When my husband and I board the ship, we do like to pop over to Guest Services to find out what drink tastings will be held onboard, as we haven't been able to book those ahead of time. The martini tasting is always a hit, as are the wine tastings, and we did splurge on the chocolate and beverage pairing which was my all time favorite tasting! And going to Senses Spa's Spa Raffle means a chance to win a free treatment!

    As for Port Adventures, there are so many that do not require swimming! In Nassau, you'd certainly enjoy exploring the Atlantis Resort. And if you like chocolate, (can you tell I do?), be sure to book the Graycliff Chocolatier trip, no swimming required, but a willingness to taste lots of chocolate is certainly required! On Castaway Cay, you could book an adventure, but even without one, there are plenty of activities included all day long to keep you busy, in or out of the water!
    Have fun planning, Anjali!
