    We are taking a Cruise in Apr. We want to spend a 1/2 day at a beach while in Nassau w/ our kids but still have time to enjoy the ship. What can you recommend? We prefer to spend as little time in transit as possible to enjoy the beach! Thanks! Kari

    Ahoy, Kari!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited to hEAR that you'll be setting sail with Captain Mickey in just a couple months! Before you know it, it'll be embarkation day and your entire family will be eating a delicious lunch onboard and dancing during the Sail-Away Celebration on deck.

    Your plans for a fun-filled half day at the beach while visiting Nassau sound perfect! I completely understand your desire to spend as little time as possible in transit to and from the beach. I think I have a great Port Adventure in mind that your family might enjoy! The Atlantis Beach Day & Discover Atlantis will give you and your pirate crew relaxing time spent on Atlantis Paradise Island's beautiful beach, as well as time to explore the resort. Transportation to and from Atlantis will take around 15 - 25 minutes each way. Another thing that I love about this excursion is that transportation back to the pier runs every 30 minutes, so Guests have the flexibility to choose when they'd like to return back to the ship!

    I'm so excited for your upcoming vacation to paradise! On our most recent Disney Cruise to the Bahamas, we saw three dolphins swimming in the water alongside the ship! While you're on deck, keep an eye out for any surprise visits from under the sea!
