    How do you plan cruise excursions and are they worth it for the Bahama cruise on Castaway Bay?

    Ahoy Colleen –

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are so glad to have you with us, Colleen. I am sure that you must be thrilled to know your cruise is coming up in about 3 months - which is plenty of time to plan an excursion if you wish. Since you are taking a 3-night cruise on the Disney Dream, you have just enough time to experience the joy of cruising with some exploration of the ports if desired.

    Visit Port Adventures to see what appeals to you. You have a plethora of options at Nassau, Bahamas like sunning on a beach, “splashtacular” pools and rides at the Atlantis Aquaventure, dolphin encounters or simply shopping in the port next to where the ship is docked. This is also a great time to stay on the ship and ride the Aquaduck or enjoy the spa if you do not want to debark. At Castaway Cay, many families choose to simply enjoy the beach and ocean, but popular extras include snorkeling, tube or bicycle rentals.

    I have never done an excursion and felt like it was a waste of time or money so I am sure that whatever you choose to do, it will be great. Colleen, I hope your cruise planning goes well, and come back to “sea” us if you have more questions!
