Hi all, Chick Melissa here and as promised on my facebookpage, I am writing today about a few of the cruise destinations in our featured fall offers.
The one I find the most fascinating is Castaway Cay! It is likely the only time I will get to be on a private island. Where else can you use your Key to the World card on an island? Once you step off of the cruise ship you are surrounded by an incredible island to explore all day long. This is Disney’s private getaway in the Bahamas. The concept of the different areas for kids, adults, or families continues on at the island. There’s a family beach, shops, dining locations, and plenty of excursions to choose from. My favorite excursion to book for Castaway Cay is the Private Cabana options. Who wouldn’t want a view like this?
It is truly the ultimate in experiencing a private island. The price runs about $500 for the day.
If you can’t get enough of Castaway Cay, check out this site.
Next up is Nassau. This is the capital of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. It offers everything from casinos, to beaches, to history, to animal encounters, and of course Atlantis! My favorite things to book here are the various Atlantis options. They seem to be the most popular. You can explore the waterpark which is massive called the Aquaventure. You will notice that Disney cruise ships do not offer gambling. If you want to check out a casino, this is your place to do so. Just remember the kids aren’t allowed into the casinos. You can also have a variety of Dolphin experiences here at Atlantis. If you have been to Nassau and done these things before or if you are doing an adult’s only getaway, check out the options at the Graycliff Hotel. My personal must do one day is the Wine Luncheon. Their wine cellar houses more than 250,000 bottles of wine! Plus who wouldn’t want to see a hotel that a pirate built in the 18th century?
And last but not least -St. Thomas. This is part of the US Virgin Islands. Here I recommend snorkeling! It is the perfect place for all skill levels because the water is typically on the calm side depending upon which part of the island you are on. There is the Champagne Catamaran Sail and Snorkel excursion that is a must do. You get to explore Honeymoon Beach. Plus any time you can be on a Catamaran in the Caribbean you should! You do watch the Bachelor right? It really is that gorgeous and that perfect.
