    What are the best tours for a family with 4 children ages 7, 5, twin 3 yr olds? At Nassau and Castaway Cay?

    Hi Esterina!

    In Nassau, I would recommend considering the Discover Atlantis shore excursion or the Atlantis Aquaventure excursion.  The second excursion is a lot more expensive, but includes access to the amazing pools and water slides at Atlantis.  I'm a big fan of going to Atlantis with young children or just remaining on the ship, which a lot of guests do because there are so many things to do on the ship and there's typically not enough time!

    In Castaway Cay, I recommend not signing up for a shore excursion.  The island is spectacular and there are things to do for all of the children.  That said, you might think about checking in some of the children into Scuttle's Cover on the island, which is available for children registered for the Oceaneer Club or Oceaneer Lab onboard ship.  Castaway Cay is my family's favorite port of call on any Disney cruise.  I wouldn't worry about signing up for an excursion ahead of time; I could easily spend days on the island without signing up for anything in particular!

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any  more questions!
