Disney Cruise: Castaway Cay & Sea Day

In case you missed it you can you can read about the first two days of our Disney Cruise HERE and my recap of the Castaway Cay 5k HERE!

After the Castaway Cay 5k Jason and I headed over to Serenity Bay, the adult only beach on Castaway Cay…

Serenity Bay

…the water was incredibly clear and there was nothing but soft sand for as far as you could walk!

After spending some time in the water we were drying off in the sun when we saw someone stumbling down the beach towards us…

Jack Walking Down Serenity Beach

Yup.  Captain Jack roaming the beach looking for his rum!

We headed back to the ship with some time to check out the rest of the island and the shops…

Fresh Catch Disney Dream

…and got ready for our dinner at Palo, one of the adult only restaurants on the ship.

Here’s my thoughts on Palo: EAT THERE.  

Seriously, our meal was amazing and the service was fantastic.  There is a $25 charge per person to dine at Palo, but it was without a doubt worth it.

**Palo Tip: make your reservation for sunset for an amazing view!

**Palo Tip #2: Get the chocolate souffle. It’s worth the $25 charge alone.

After our amazing dinner at Palo we headed out to the deck to check out all the Pirate Night festivities!

There was a stage show with Mickey & friends and even fireworks!

Pirate Night

Our last day on the ship was a sea day.

We grabbed a spot on the deck overlooking the pool where we were able to watch Mary Poppins on funnelvision (the large screen above the pool deck)…

…we rode the Aquaduck a few times…

…and then moved up to the adult only deck for a little relaxing in the sun!

We ended out trip with a farewell from all our Disney friends…

…and a picture with the Captain Mickey!

We were both definitely sad the cruise was over (and wished we had chosen a longer one!), but we couldn’t complain too much because we still had 2 days at Disney World!


Next up I’ll be sharing my overall thoughts on the cruise and some tips for anyone thinking of taking a Disney Cruise in the future!

If you have any questions you’d like me to answer be sure to post in the comments so I can make sure to include it!

  1. We’ve been on two Disney Cruises and they were great. They didn’t have a 5K when we were at Cast Away Key.
    Palo’s is fantastic. We went there for breakfast and everything was awesome. We even had pizza for breakfast. Well worth the extra $25.00.
    Another nice thing about Disney is that the entertainment is top notch.
    On our first cruise they premiered “Pirates of the Carribean”! I think we saw it pre-release. I’m pretty sure that they cut part of the opening scene w/ Kira Knightly. It was a little too hot for a Disney movie. I keep looking for that scene everytime we watch the movie!
    The last time we were at The Key we took photos w/ Captain Jack. He was a little hands-y with me. I was shocked and didn’t realize i’d been felt up by a man untill we were walking away! I guess that’s what you’d expect from a pirate! 😉

  4. I love that they have so many “Adult Only” options! The water looks amazing, the food looks delicious, the ship looks like tons of fun and I’m even more depressed being back in NY now!
