Today the Disney Dream will be in Nassau. I’ve been here many times over the years but we’re doing something new to me. But first things first I head up to the buffet area and find coffee while A and C sleep a bit longer.
I love that they even brand the to go coffee cups. My view outside included the main pool with it’s Mickey ears.
I enjoyed a couple of cups and looked for the wi-fi costs. This wasn’t something we could book in advance.
Wow! The pricing scheme is a blast from the past. Why can’t they offer unlimited packages with different accesses like nearly every other cruise line.
After an hour, I was getting hungry so just ate something from the buffet.
It was good but nothing out of the ordinary. I do believe they had Mickey waffles. I went back to the cabin afterwards and the rest of the group was getting dressed and I joined them while they ate.
Day in Nassau
The ship was in Nassau from 9:30 am to 5:15 pm. C and A were planning to swim with the dolphins and I wasn’t in to that so we bought Blue Lagoon shore excursions through the ship that let us go together but I didn’t have to buy the activity. My ticket included lunch though and theirs didn’t.
Our excursion time was 10:15 am and we met in the Royal Theater and were escorted off and to the nearby boat as a group. I believe we had wristbands corresponding to excursion booked.
The boat ride was uneventful and it was a large enough boat that we didn’t feel crowded or cramped. Once on the island (really a cay) we were separated by package/activity. Some were walked directly to the beach designated for our ship and others to the dolphins enclosures.
We went directly to the dolphin enclosures. There were 10 participants and a few other observers besides myself. The dolphins sure are cute!
I think I enjoyed watching C and A in the dolphin encounter almost as much as they did.
Afterwards C bought the photos offered and we were escorted to our designated beach area. I don’t know if the guests are always segregated by ship or this was a covid protection that has been eliminated.
Because we got there later, we had to take chairs in the back but that was fine. Someone brought us an umbrella once we settled in so I was happy.
A and I played in the water. C offered to go to the food area and get my plate along with what she was buying. I appreciated that and was able to enjoy the water more.
It was very shallow to the point you really couldn’t swim. Unfortunately I didn’t get photos of lunch or the swimming area. Just enjoying it too much. There was staff leading games with kids/adults and a lifeguard.
All too soon it was time to return to the ship and we had a quiet, relaxing ride back to the pier.
The Dream left on time and it was very scenic as we left port.
We went to our early dining time in the Enchanted Garden tonight. Here is the dinner menu.
The bread basket was waiting.
Before the first course, we had a characters parade which was fun. Due to covid precautions they didn’t stop at any tables.
Now here is where not taking notes got me. I don’t remember who had which appetizer or if I had both of these. First is the lobster ravioli in broth.
This is the mushroom tart (really quiche).
For entrees, I had the sea bass.
C had the scallops.
I’m sure A had something from the kids menu but I didn’t get a photo. Here is the dessert menu.
Then I had southern pecan pie with coffee.
As we were leaving the dining room I took a moment to admire the fountain lit up.
In the main atrium there were opportunities to take photos in front of various characters. C and A posed with Donald Duck.
I like that they let family members take photos in addition to the official photographer. Tonight’s entertainment was fireworks on the tp decks. This was assigned times for the show so the decks weren’t too crowded. I wasn’t up to it so went to bed early.
This wild animal was hanging around our cabin tonight!
