Just returned from a 3 day cruise on the Dream to Nassau and Castaway Cay. Disney was piloting their Halloween on the High Seas on the Dream this fall, and we felt very lucky to have this enhancement to our cruise. There were gorgeous Halloween decorations throughout the lobby and the Cabanas area. Our kids each got a bag of Halloween treats in our stateroom, and we enjoyed the nightly activities at the Halloween tree in the foyer.
We found the food to be solid in the dining rooms, and exceptional at Palo. The buffet at the Enchanted Garden on Day 1 was amazing with stone crab claws, shrimp, and amazing salads. Cabanas offers a great variety at breakfast including Mickey waffles!
We did the Atlantis tour in Nassau and had a blast. The Lazy River there is not to be missed! There are rapids and water slides along the river. The food at Atlantis that was included with the ticket was subpar. Would make me question spending extended time at Atlantis in the future. The waterslide through the shark tank was a favorite of my children. It was very cool to slowly go through the glass tube looking at all the sharks around you.
Castaway Cay we made our way to the 2nd family beach. The water is just gorgeous! Stood in the line for Pelican Plunge, but preferred to play on tubes in the ocean. There are huge fish swimming along with you! The food on Castaway was really good considering it all must be made on island.
On the ship we thoroughly enjoyed the Aquaduct, the Detectives game, and the shows at night. We didn't miss a show- Disney puts on Class A shows. We also went to a special Halloween viewing of the Night before Christmas in 3D with audience participation and my husband and son went to see IronMan 3D and loved it.
Overall great mini-vacation, full of fun, family, and sun!
