    We r taking our first cruise ever!! Sailing on 3 day Bahamas cruise on Disney Dream! February 27th:) What do u recommend to pack ? Special activities to do? Pirate night? Must do's:)? So excited, but have no clue what to expect:)

    It's almost February 27th, Fabiola!  This magical voyage will be unforgettable.


    Shorts, swimsuits, flip flops & sunblock are must haves on the packing list.  At Dinner, most will be dressed Cruise Casual.  Comfortable footwear is a must to walk around in when exploring the ship.  If you are traveling with kids, they will likely be skipping to and from the kids' clubs and sports deck; surely, a side trip (or two) on the AquaDuck Water Slide. My kids have been quite comfortable in rash guards for the day - it dries quick! :-)  Arrrrr - don't forget ye'r Pirate gear for Pirate's night.  My kids love bringing glow-in-the-dark necklaces too.  Don't miss the evening broadway style shows.  They are absolutely magnificent!  The food? Food for all the pickiest eaters, and food for the most sophisticated palettes.

    While on Nassau, check out the Port Adventures for a tour of the town. I've brought home Tortuga cakes from Nassau in the past too.  Get ready for an awesome beach day while at Castaway Cay!  Biking is a great way to explore the island.  Maybe you'll enjoy snorkeling? 


    It will be a magical 3 day voyage and you'll want to bring that camera with you!  Bring the smiles and the giggles… it will be on auto-reload throughout the cruise. Capture those moments and enjoy every second of it. You've definitely earned it!
