    We are sailing on the wish in May. We are looking at several short excursions in Nassau but I am trying to understand the timing. If the excursion says 1245 pm, and runs for 1-1.5 hours does that include meeting and travel time? So 1245 and back at 215?

    Waving hello to you Angela!

    Welcome back to planDisney. I'll be sailing on Disney Wish for the very first time next month, and like you, I'm in full planning mode. I'm just so excited to experience everything this gorgeous ship has to offer! We always try to strike a balance between adventure and relaxation on our Disney Cruise Line sailings, yet we always leave wanting more time for both. I'm convinced cruise time moves just a little bit faster because our magical voyages always seem to end before we're ready. 

    You're smart to already be looking into Port Adventures. There are quite a few options to choose from, so you'll definitely want to make a good game plan for your time in Nassau, Bahamas. I took a look at some of the shorter options and it looks like travel time is factored in to the total timing. The Discover Nassau Harbor Cruise, for instance, is listed as 1-1.5 hours long and mentions a 15 min walk to the dock followed by a one-hour leisurely catamaran cruise. You'll receive more detailed instructions for your meeting location and time prior to your excursion, but you will need to be checked in at the designated location at the time you've reserved.

    I reached out to a friendly Cast Member who reminded me that timing may vary and is subject to change, so if you are hoping to reserve an onboard activity like a spa service or Adult-Exclusive Dining after your Port Adventure, I'd leave some extra time as a cushion. If you have any more specific questions you can visit the Port Adventures Desk when you board the ship. 

    Disney Cruise Line will be celebrating its Silver Anniversary at Sea this summer on select sailings between May and September. Based on my research, it looks like you'll be able to enjoy the celebration with exclusive entertainment, food, and merchandise offerings during your sailing. I'm so excited for you!

    Come back and "sea" us again with any other questions as you prepare for your most magical voyage.
