Cruising with Mickey!!

What's better than Disney World?? A Disney cruise of course!! This past week, the Thomas' packed up and spent 5 days with Mickey, Minnie and countless Princesses and characters! To say we had fun would be a definite understatement. We ate tons, played even more and stood in line to see almost every character and princess that was on the ship! Our ports of call were Nassau, Bahamas on day 1, Castaway Cay - day 2, a day at sea - day 3, Castaway Cay - day 4 and then cruising back home. The weather that week was a bit off, with a huge storm passing through and a mini-cold front.

Nassau was a day that we used to shop around and just relax. We went to an open air market where we were able to find some souvenirs and see the treasures of the Bahamas. After we did a little shopping, we went back to the ship for some fun in the pools and on-board activities. The kids had an area where they could go for some games and free time. It gave Mommy and Daddy some down-time :)

Castaway Cay is Disney's own island in the Bahamas. They have their own dock for the ships and once you get to the island there is TONS to do. We played in the beach, at the water splash pad area, ate and danced with the characters. The water was so clear and weather perfect. There were some storms but by the time they came through, our girls were ready to head back to the room for nap time so it worked out perfectly.
