Castaway Cay

For any Bahamas or Caribbean Cruise, you’ll be treated with a stop at Castaway Cay.  Occasionally a cruise will have TWO stops there, called Douple Dips.  And Castaway is usually on a transatlantic voyage at some point.  Castaway Cay is Disney’s private island, and is heaven on earth.  Truly private, the only people on the island will be the people that just came off your ship.  The cast members on the ship come off to work the island for the day.  Food is included.  Servers walk the beach offering frothy beverages for sale.  There is a family beach with a play area in the water and danger free snorkeling (there is a net), and there is an adult only beach that is heaven.  Wait…I used that word before…but can’t think of a better one.  There are family activities, shops, and you can rent watercrafts such as paddleboats and hobie cat sailboats (have to have experience for that one).  My recommendation for a first time cruiser is to skip a port excursion for your first Castaway experience.  Spend the morning at the family beach, eat as a family from Cookie’s BBQ on trays right on the beach, and then take the kids to the club (on the beach but safely far and protected from the water) and head to the adult beach for the afternoon, and maybe even a massage in an open air cabana!

There are a very limited number of private cabanas for rent as well, but they are extremely expensive and usually snapped up by concierge and platinum guests, so don’t count on getting one.

A rain out is rare, but when they happen, it is usually fast and furious, then over!
