Disney Wish Bahamas – Day 4

Today is Castaway Cay day!!! Castaway Cay is Disney’s private island in the Bahamas. It’s a beautiful wonderland! Unfortunately, shortly after waking up, we learned that we could not dock at Castaway Cay today because of the weather and the wind speed (from Hurricane Ian).

You can see how cloudy is was today.

It rained off and on all day. We were super impressed with the giant screen – Funnel Vision. SO clear!!!

So we went up to Marceline’s Market (the buffet) for breakfast. While I was walking around gathering my breakfast I saw a man who was crouched down with his hands on his son’s shoulders. The son looked to be about 6. The man was SCREAMING in his face- “You listen to me! You calm down! CALM DOWN!!!” Yeah, that’s going to make him calm down- you all red faced screaming inches from his face!!! UGH.

Random thing I noticed today- the ship smells amazing! Disney must be pumping in scent because it smells good all the time!!!

We went back to the room to buy internet for the day and make some phone calls to update people at home about our cruise being extended. We had a hotel reservation in Florida for Friday night that I had to cancel since we’ll still be on the ship. I took lots of pictures of our room. I posted a video the other day but here’s pictures. Then we got ready for our day.

Lots of storage! And there’s a great (very powerful) hair dryer in your room.
Plenty of room under the bed for your suitcases!
I sleep SO well on a cruise!!!
The walls are metal so we bring magnetic hooks for extra storage!
Lots of closet space!
I love the split bathrooms!
So much storage space!
The other bathroom (the one with the toilet). Lots of shelves here too.
Lots of people decorate their doors with magnets! Helps to find your room!
There’s a safe in each room too!

For lunch today we went casual and grabbed something to eat on Deck 11. I went to Donald’s Cantina and got a burrito bowl. CSP got brisket from the BBQ station. Pro Tip: the Disney ships have beverage stations (most of the time on the pool deck or deck 11). You have to use a disposable cup that they offer but the cups are TINY. So we bring reusable cups with us and fill them up at the drink station (using the paper cups to fill for sanitation’s sake). That way we can tote our drinks all around the ship and not run out so quickly! CSP uses a Swig cup and I used my new Stanley cup on this cruise. LOVE the handle!

Stan, my reusable cup

After lunch we went up to Deck 12 & Wheezy’s Freezies for a Dole Whip. SO good! We took my Dole Whip back to our room and read our books and relaxed on the verandah. We got some snacky snacks from room service (room service on Disney ships is free and fast! Tip your servers!). Then we showered and got ready for dinner. We found out that we aren’t docking back in Port Canaveral until Sunday!!! Wooot!!! The ship is really rocking due to the hurricane.

On the way to dinner we passed by the Grand Atrium and CSP took a quick video.

Dinner tonight is back in Arendelle and it’s Pirate Night!!! We joked that the hallway going to the Arendelle dining room is the longest one on the ship!

Tonight we have the pirate menu and no show from the Arendelle singers. After dinner we went up to Deck 13 to get a good spot for the fireworks!

You can see some people dressed up in their pirate gear!
I love that the Disney fireworks are made from fish food so they are good for the environment!

On our way back down in the elevator to get to our room to retire for the night, a man told us that DCL was gifting everyone with free internet for the rest of the cruise because of the delays. Yay!

I love all the towel/blanket animals!

Good night! Tomorrow is a sea day!!!
