Last week I asked which cruise lines have their own private islands. This may have been a struggle for you, because there are actually quite a few. If you answered Holland America, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, Disney Cruise Line, and Norwegian Cruise Line then you would be correct. Now if you got even a couple of those, props to you because that is a lot of different cruise companies. I’m not going to go over all the Islands, but I will highlight one of them here today.
We all know Disney as a company means exceptional customers service and a magical experience for all. Disney Cruise Line’s private island is known as Castaway Cay. Purchased in 1997 by the Walt Disney Company, this 1000 square Acre Island formerly known as Gorda Cay was leased from the Bahamian Government for 99 years. Upon arrival you enter the world of a castaway community, the theme being shipwreck. Like other Disney attractions your stateroom key can be used as payment throughout the island. The island is located near the Great Abaco Island in the Bahamas. Once on the island dive into the endless amount of activates. Rent a bike, get a massage overlooking the ocean, snorkel, parasail, get involved in a volleyball or basketball game or rent a personal watercraft. No matter what, your day will be full of fun! The island itself has 1000 sq. acres, but only 55 are in use. 99 people live on the island taking care of it and working to make your experience extra special.
If you would like to know more about Castaway Cay or any of the private islands that these cruise lines own and operate, please give us a call at 920.236.7777 ask to speak to one of our cruising specialists.
