We flew in the day before the cruise and stayed at the Hyatt at the Orlando airport. Staying there really made it easy to access transportation the next morning. We arrived at Port Canaveral around 10:30am. We waited about 15 minutes before a crew member came to meet us and escort us on the ship. We were introduced and on to the concierge reception in the Cadillac Lounge. The children snacked while we booked spa and children activities with help from our dedicated concierge, Mike. Mike was a wonderful resource throughout the cruise. We had a blast at the sail away party.
Our children loved a variety of onboard activities all children friendly. We did not have worry about editing what they could do or see. We enjoyed a couples massage with a hot tub on the balcony. It is something that my husband and I will book twice on our next 7 night cruise because it was just that good. Disney has some of the best spa services that I have ever received whether on land or sea.
At Nassau, we went to Atlantis enjoyed the pools and sand and surf. My son even made a new friend. The weather was slightly chilly, but not so bad that we could not enjoy ourselves. The aquarium and the ice cream parlor were a hit with my daughter. At Castaway Cay, we had a couples Cabana massage, but it was so windy that it made for a chilly experience. In retrospect, we would book 2 spa experiences onboard and just enjoy the sand at Castaway Cay, but I guess it will depend on the time of year. The children really loved Castaway Cay even as windy as it was. Thank goodness for long sleeve rash shirts! My children said they preferred the Disney cruise over visiting Disney World (we did both this trip). We have 2 more Disney cruises booked for the future. It was a wonderful experience for adults and children alike.
