Happy New Year to you too! 2011 is sure to be full of excitement for Disney Cruise Line fans, as the Disney Dream is scheduled to set sail on her maiden voyage in January!
I'll be totally honest with you, unless you really want to explore the Bahamas - your day in Nassau is the perfect time to enjoy the ship. We tend to stay onboard, and take full advantage of the relatively empty pools and sun decks. The AquaDuck
is likely to be pretty popular during sea days, so this could be the perfect time to experience it. Of course It is worth mentioning that if your daughter happens to have a strong affinity for dolphins - Nassau is the port for you. Atlantis Dolphin Cay
and Blue Lagoon Island Dolphin Encounter
both offer up close and personal experiences with dolphins.
We prefer to use Castaway Cay as our beach day - we love this island and it's majestic Bahamian blue waters and powder white sand. For a fun family excursion, I highly recommend Castaway Rays Stingray Adventure
. We were all giggles over these unique creatures.
As for Alaska, I asked about this myself - and they have yet to confirm any Alaskan itineraries for 2012. Keep checking, hopefully there will be an announcement soon!
