A Few Tips. Do not skip their evening shows. Also get off the boat early when at Castaway Cay. This is thier private island. When you get off, make your way all the way down to the end of the beach. You can sit in the water, in a chair, undisturbed for hours... ALso if you stop in Nassau, take a taxi to Atlantis and pay the $100 a person for a day pass to the water park. As step as $100 a person sounds, trust me. It is worth every penny.

If you are traveling with children, take advantage of the Kids activities. Disney will give you a pager so you can check your kids in with the activities center and when your kids have had enuff, Disney will page you. This works on the boat and at Castaway Cay. We had a hard time keeping our daughter out of the kids club......

We skipped Disney this year, but will be booking the 4 day cruise again next year.
LP,
Yeah, the kids are REALLY excited. Should be a great time. Next year, we are thinking about taking the Hustler over with a group of boaters 1 of my friends belongs to. They all leave Ft. Lauderdale, 1st thing in the am, shoot straight over to GB. He says it's a blast, and he crosses in a 27' Baja, and overnights on it!

I like the idea of an all inclusive but not sure I'd want to stay in one place the whole trip. Are there any other islands that do all inclusive?

We looked into flying down to St Thomas in January but the rates are outrageous, 550 a person out of cmh.

Out of tampa they are offering a 7 day for pennies so they can get intrest in the new ship they brought down here.

I leave Nov 6th on it with the GF and 4 other couples. Stops are Cozmel (meh), Grand Cayman, Belize, and Isle Rotan. Cost was $1k per couple that was taxes, port fees, and everything. Also that is a room on the upper decks middle ship to avoid the engine noise and what not. Can be cheaper if you stay in a lower level room.

Thought it was a great deal.

Take a look at the Sandals/Beaches brand, and most islands have independent all inclusive hotels. Might be better to go through a travel agent to get a packaged deal for travel and stay.

Fact is that travel at this time of the year will be more expensive
