Disney Cruise Day 3- Castaway Cay

Our third day started with me in the ship's doctor's office because I thought I had the flu. I ended up just having a bad chest cold, but I had a fever and felt terrible. Jensen started our trip with a fever, so I guess we just had a bug. 

My parents and Jeremy got the kids breakfast and headed out to Castaway Cay, Disney's exclusive island.

Characters were everywhere for pictures. It was fun to see them all around as you walked around the island. I met up with the family on the beach and they were already enjoying it so much.

Jeremy and I swam out to Pelican Plunge for the water slides. The water was freezing at first, but felt good after you got used to it.

Jensen loves the beach!

We had a delicious barbeque style lunch on the Island. It was so fun to have lunch with our family in the Bahamian breeze by the beach.

We rented the activities package of floats, bikes, and snorkel gear. Jeremy took the girls out in the ocean on floats and they loved that. We didn't use the snorkel gear because the water was just too cold.

We enjoyed our bike ride so much. The littles loved being on the bike with us and Haven is a pro, so she loved exploring.

This is a peek-a-boo shot of the splash pad on the island. We played there for a little while. 

We rode our bikes to the lookout tower where you can see the whole island, but I forgot my camera. The colors of the ocean were amazing from up high.

Jovie and Pop were tired.

Jeremy and Haven stayed out a little longer than us and swam back to Pelican Plunge and played more.

Jensen was waving as we left the dock for the evening.

Our Pirates of The Caribbean dinner was fun. The girls dressed the part and had fun with our waiters.



Jensen wasn't a happy camper at dinner most nights. He just wanted to play.

Sweet Jovie with her origami that our waiter made for the girls.

The pirate party on deck was next. There was a live character show about pirates taking over our boat. Captain Hook made an appearance too.

Jovie danced her little heart out, per usual.

We had gold pirate's booty when we got back to our room and lobster.

Jeremy and Haven tried to make it to the fireworks show at 10:30, but she said it was too loud and wanted to go back to bed. He woke her up to go see the "flying stars" as she called them in her sleepy state. It was just too late for us sleepy heads.

Disney Cruise Day 2- Nassau

On Day 2, we woke up to the Nassau port and it was really pretty. We had a few hours before our excursion, so we got on our bathing suits to hit the deck.

We enjoyed our balcony!

Jensen got pretty freaked out when we saw Goofy in the hallway.

The princesses were so beautiful, but the girls weren't interested in waiting in line to hug them.

The line for Anna from Frozen was not too bad, but the girls did want to meet her.

We then headed outside for our excursion to Atlantis.

Atlantis was a super fancy resort! It reminded me of things in Vegas.

We went on our tour the main parts of the hotel and then headed to the aquariums.

Pop checking out the lobsters.

One of our few family pictures.

Haven wanted to go on the beach so bad, it was so pretty.

Haven started taking pictures of Daddy.

Big Girl

We had lunch at the resort.

Headed back to the boat.

We had an amazing dinner at the Animator's Palate.

Everything had a special Disney touch.

Grammy and Haven

Jensen loved feeding himself.

The girls loved their Mickey ice cream.


Grammy and Pop took the girls to see Frozen 3D while Jeremy, Jensen and I went to see the show about Villains. Jensen slept through the show.

We had a cute, little guy waiting for us when we returned.

Here are Grammy's Pictures from the same day:

Pop and Grammy kept Jensen for us while we waited in line for Anna.

Amazing bathrooms throughout the boat.

Silly people ready to get wet.

Nemo's Splash Pad was so fun for Jensen.

Jovie too!

The girls loved listening to our driver that was taking us to Atlantis. His Bahamian accent was pretty amazing.

The tour threw Nassau was nice. Pop asked lots of questions.


Jeremy was afraid Jovie was going to get her head stuck.

This is where we ate lunch.

Pop and Grammy

Dinner with 3 little ones was pretty crazy. The kids were tired and 4 course meals take a while.

The Nemo characters came on the screens all around the room and talked to us. It was really amazing and kept the kids entertained for a while.


The girls found Grammy and Pop's little creature.
