Disney Dream – Day 3, Castaway Cay Part 2



After going back to the ship for breakfast and a nice refreshing shower, we headed back down to walk over to Castaway Cay.




The view was completely clear, as there were very few people actually in the water. Just on the beaches which aren’t really visible in this picture.



This picture taken from the ship gives a better idea of how choppy the water was.




We stopped for a few photo ops.




We didn’t have much planned, other than to get a bite to eat. There are burgers, salads, spicy chicken patties etc all available at no cost just like the foods on the ship. There are also some bars where you can get 16730426_10212798634027446_499682512742632766_nsome yummy tropical drinks but we didn’t partake as we had other plans later in the afternoon.

As we were eating, I heard some music and saw Goofy dancing along in the street.

After checking out the shops with the usual Disney souvenir items, and resisting the temptation to buy any, we headed back to the ship because we had something fun planned!

Disney offers tasting sessions – martini, margarita, chocolate and champagne. Last year we tried to schedule one, I don’t remember which one, and it was already full. So the person recommended mixology and I ended up being so glad we got it!

It’s basically like a cocktail tasting session, only the bartender talks about the different kind of cocktails and teaches you how to make several different kinds of drinks. 16807368_10212798638547559_3454198459377350405_n


We got to try a margarita, a mojito, an apple martini, a layered drink with Kahlua, Irish Cream and triple sec called a B-52, and a tequila sunrise. They were soooo good.






It was so much fun and we will definitely be doing it again on our next cruise!


  1. Sounds like great fun! Bill did a margarita tasting on our cruise to Bermuda (I helped him a little bit) - he loved it! Not being a huge tequila fan - I'd like what you did better!

  2. Oh my, lotsa drinks on a rocking ship could spell disaster :) Looks like fun, though. Now you'll have to stock all your favorite liquors :)

    1. This year the mixology session was at the absolute perfect time - right before dinner! So we just had to get ourselves from the lounge where the tasting was to our dining room, and then we had over an hour to sit and eats lots of food! haha

  3. Sounds like a great day!! Mixology sounds interesting 😀!! The water looks so pretty....and it looks warm!!
    Glad you had fun!!
