What Can You Expect From Castaway Cay?

Your next summer destination: Disney Cruise Line’s private island

Are you thinking about your plans for the 2024 summer vacation? I like to refer to it as "The 2024 Edition" because each year brings new destinations and adventures to explore. It's good to change your plans and do something different each year. Well, have you started considering where you'd like to go in a couple of months?

Castaway Cay, a Caribbean gem waiting for you

Disney Cruise Line has always been distinguished not only for its magical ships and enjoyable onboard activities, but also for its remarkable onshore adventures. This is particularly true if you're traveling to the Caribbean, where their private island should be a must-visit destination for you.

What can you expect?

This breathtaking piece of land, located in the Bahamas, offers mesmerizing views and a magical experience for all its guests. It's Disney, so of course we expect some fairy dust there. The island is only available for Disney Cruise Line cruisers and is packed with everything you need for a memorable vacation in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean.

From complimentary umbrellas to sun chairs, everything you need for the perfect tanning session awaits you on the white sand beaches. If you prefer a refreshing dip in the water, consider joining the snorkeling tours at the Blue Lagoon. Of course, you can always simply relax on the beach as well and work on that summer tan.

Food and drinks are included. A barbecue lunch is served from 11:30 am to 3 pm, offering various options such as meat, chicken, corn, fruits, desserts, and more. If you're 21 years old or older and desire an alcoholic beverage, then yes, you'll need to pay for your drink.

Don't forget to ask for the drink of the day, served in a stylish cup that you can take home. Pretty cool, right?


Hey, if you want to explore the island in style and get around faster than ever, you can rent your favorite vehicle. Choose from bicycles, floaters, kayaks, jet skis, and many other options. Or you can just use your legs too, that works fine as well. Just let us know beforehand if you're interested in any of these services, and we can guide you through the renting process.
