Day 3 of the cruise found us at Castaway Cay, Disney's private island. This was our view from the ship while we ate breakfast.
before, this is the perfect beach stop. The food's still free, there's a free shuttle to take you to the beach, you're guaranteed a nice, clean bathroom, and everyone's friendly.
Oh yeah...and there's always a free hammock.
Since the last time we were there, the facilities have been expanded (in order to handle the larger ship). One very fun addition is the swim-up water slide platform.
Here is a view of our beautiful ship.
We started off our time at Castaway Cay by doing Yoga on the beach. I thought it would be relaxing, and parts of it were, but it was very challenging. I had to give up when we were on our backs, raising our legs in the air, and the teacher told us, "Now put your toes on the ground over your head." Yeah...not going to happen. After that, we hung out, we ate barbecue, we swam. Then it was time to go back to the ship and get ready for...
Pirates IN the Caribbean!
Afterwards, we headed to dinner at Animator's Palate, which was all "decked" out with pirate concept art for the occasion.
Our Caribbean menus...
Then it was time for a pirate party on deck!
What? Are those fireworks in the middle of the ocean?
Then there was a stage show with great dancers...
Then, it was time for...
last time, we really missed something.
Oh, well...it's not like we hadn't had enough to eat!!
