Welcome back to Never Never Growing Up and to the next video in our Disney Cruise Line series!
This series covers our recent trip where we spent five nights on board the Disney Magic cruise sailing from Miami to Grand Cayman and Castaway Cay!
We had an absolutely MAGICal and unforgettable trip... WATCH TO THE END OF THIS VIDEO for a little sneak peak at exactly what we mean!
In this video, we finally get to step ashore on Disney's private island, Castaway Cay!
After a quick breakfast at Cabanas, we head to deck 10 in hope of seeing the ship dock at Castaway Cay and end up playing a game of table tennis. It seemed the ship was running a little late so we head on down to Fathoms to sign up and get our bibs for the Castaway 5k! For anyone that doesn't know, this is a RunDisney event that's completely free to sign up for and involves a 5k run through Castaway Cay, at the end of which you get a medal. Unfortunately, due to the ship being delayed arriving at the island, the run was cancelled! However, we're all for making lemonade out of our lemons, so we opt to run the 10 laps of Deck 4, which equates to 5k, and still complete our run. We definitely earned our medals after that!
Then it's finally time to step ashore on to Castaway Cay!!! What an incredible island. We start with a stroll around and then rent bicycles to tour the island and ride to the island outpost. Unfortunately John has a pretty bad accident at this point and we have to make a quick stop at first aid! We get him patched up then we head to Serenity Bay for cocktails, barbecue food, and relaxing in the beautiful clear waters and white sand beach. What a place.
After a little sun, we head back to Pelican Point to do some shopping, check out the family beach, and then on the way back to the ship, make a quick stop to film a little something for the cruise edition of our Youtube channel introduction. What comes next? Watch and find out...
To be continued next week!

Hey there Disney friends I loved this video, Castaway is my favorite place. since you guys showed my channel some love I've subscribed to yours with both of mine. I've been looking at doing a b2b cruise because of how awesome it would be or you can do a double dip which gives you double the castaway fun. One way I help burn those cruise calories is cycling and the 5k which I do everytime I'm at castaway. Since you guys got enraged do check out this show called Disney Fairytale wedding's, in one of the episodes a couple gets married on castaway which would be perfect for you guys. Let me know next time you're in town an we can hang out, 😎❤🦅
Travel With The Eagle thank you so much for the love, you are awesome! Castaway is for sure our favorite place also, it’s paradise!
A b2b would be so wonderful, on our bucket list to do that now and you’re right! The 5k is a great way to make sure you can still be eating all those mickey waffles and soft serves!
We always watch Disney’s Fairytale Wedding show on Monday’s! They had a Castaway Cay engagement last week too, brought back a lot of memories!!!
Thank you for watching and for your constant support!
We've talked about doing a cruise for years, but we keep planning trips to the parks lol. I've enjoyed your cruise series so much! That ending tho... I can't wait for next weeks video! Oh my gosh, SO exciting!
Aahh this is so great! I miss Castaway Cay so much ... and the ending of the video was pretty good too ;) This time next week we will be in Vancouver, BC exploring Chinatown and Granville Island, anxiously awaiting boarding the Disney Wonder the next day! The next installment of your adventure will be a special treat for me when we get back :) So, SO happy for you two!
We honeymooned in Vancouver so we are excited to visit again six years later! And now that I think about it, I'll have WiFi in the hotel room ... I might not be able to wait to see what happens next! :)
Governors: senators (or knights) who ruled the provinces of the Roman empire.
The first Roman province, Sicily, was conquered after the First Punic War (241 BCE), and the Senate decided that it had to be ruled by a praetor. This meant that civil (not military) law was applied -at least under normal circumstances- and that the new territories were governed by magistrates who served a limited time. The Romans never did change these principles, although other types of governorship became more important: the propraetor and proconsul were, as their names suggest, former praetors and consuls who stayed in a territory they had recently or not yet fully conquered. The revolutionary politician Gaius Sempronius Gracchus legislated that these promagistrates were to be appointed by the Senate (123 or 122).
The governor of any Roman province always had four tasks.
To start with, he was responsible for the taxes. As the Senates financial agent, he had to supervise the local authorities and the private tax collectors, the notorious publicans. To facilitate things, a governor could mint coins and negotiate with wealthy institutions (e.g., temples) that could advance the money. His second task was that of accountant: he inspected the books and supervised large scale building projects. Next to these financial tasks, the governor was the provinces supreme judge. Appeal was not impossible, but the voyage to Rome was expensive. He was supposed to travel through the main districts of his province to administer justice in the assize towns. Finally, he commanded an army. In the more important provinces, this could consist of legions; but elsewhere, there were only auxiliaries.
Under the late republic, the number of provinces rapidly increased, and therefore, Pompey the Great proposed a new law, the Lex Pompeia de provinciis , in which former praetors and consuls were obliged to become governor five years after their term in office (53). At more or less the same time, he had himself elected as governor of several provinces, which were not governed by himself, but by his representatives, the legati .
The emperor Augustus copied this idea when he changed the empire, until then ruled as a republic, into a monarchy. He was made governor of almost all provinces with legions, and used legati to rule them. At the same time, the rest of the empire was governed by proconsuls. So, there were two types of governors:
Proconsuls. In fact, these men were not former consuls, but former praetors. They governed the senatorial provinces and typically served twelve months. Only the rich provinces -Asia and Africa- were entitled to a proconsul who was indeed an ex-consul. Legati Augusti pro praetore. These men served in the emperors provinces with the armies (the imperial provinces ). Usually, their term in office lasted thirty-six months, although the emperor Tiberius preferred longer terms.
There was a third group of governors. In several unimportant provinces, prefects were appointed. Usually, these military men governed parts of larger provinces. The best known example is Pontius Pilate, who governed Judaea, an annex to Syria. Prefects were not senators but knights. Egypt was also governed by a prefect, not because it was unimportant, but because it was the emperors own possession. When Septimius Severus conquered Mesopotamia, he used the same construction.
After the mid-first century, the prefects were gradually replaced by procurators (except for Egypt). The only difference is that prefects were soldiers and procurators were fiscal officials. It tells something about the success of the Pax Romana .
