The second day of the cruise we were docked in Nassau, Bahamas. I went out on our balcony and was able to watch us back into port. Took some pictures as we were coming in as well.
We were choosing to stay on the ship for the day. We headed up to Cabanas and had breakfast and then headed to the spa. We had pre-purchased day passes for the Rainforest room. We had never been there before and we really enjoyed it. We were given robes and went to the locker room to change. You need to wear your bathing suit under your robe. You also need to hand in your key card and they give you a bracelet that will open the door. The day pass entitles you to in and out use of the Rainforest room all day. You just need to exchange your key card for the bracelet each time.
As you enter into the Rainforest area, the first section has special showers. There were 3 or 4 different ones. Each had a few different buttons that you can press. The idea is that each one has different scents and variation of how the water comes out to simulate things like a rainforest or cool mist. I tried one and Sue tried a different one. We really didn’t like it. Maybe we didn’t choose the best ones… don’t know. There are also a few different sauna rooms in that area as well. But we moved into the next room where we found what we were there for… the heated tile loungers.
Ahhhhh, the heated loungers were amazing. Each had a light, if you want to read, and a pillow. There were 10 in the room. It was very quiet in the whole Rainforest area and at most there was 2 other people in there with us at any time. We went down one end and camped out. From that area, you would open another set of doors and go out to where there were 2 small hot tubs. The area was covered and had a railing but it was open to the air, similar to the baloneys in the staterooms.
We spent about 3 hours going back and forth from the hot tub to the heated loungers. Took a few naps on the loungers and really didn’t want to get up. It was a really nice morning. I would imagine on sea days it is busier so we were glad we decided to use it on a port day.
We grabbed something quick for lunch and then went to an afternoon showing of “Into the Woods.” We enjoyed that and then headed back to our room to change for a walk. We did 2 miles around Deck 4 and then got ready for the evening.
The show was Villains Tonight. We had both seen it and it isn’t a favorite so we decided to skip it. We relaxed for a bit and then went to a special little show in the Buena Vista theatre. It was a performance by a performer from Iceland who sings and plays the violin. She was really good. Our only complaint was that throughout the show wild graphics played on a big screen behind her. It really wasn’t needed and became a little too much after 30 minutes of it.
We went right from there to dinner. We were in the Enchanted Garden that night. Victor wanted to know what our plans for the evening were and we actually had some this time. We went from dinner to Pink, the champagne bar in the adult district area. It was about 9:30 and we were the only people in there. First we each chose a specialty cocktail from their menu that, of course, included champagne. We enjoyed those and then Sue tried a different one while I had a glass of champagne that was made especially for Pink on the Disney Dream. I am not a big drinker of champagne but I really enjoyed that one.
We were there for about 90 minutes and at most there were 2 other parties in there the whole time. It was quiet in the whole adult area as we were leaving and heading back to our room.
Here are the Navigators from Day 2.

I have been a huge Disney and travel fan since childhood. I love going to new places and, of course, heading to Disney as often as I can.
