Private Islands: Castaway Cay
Disney Cruise Line

Unique among cruise line private islands, Disney’s Castaway Cay has its own dock and passengers simply step ashore (rather than tendering, as required to reach all other private islands). Like everything associated with Disney, their private island is almost too good to be true. Located in the Abacos, a string of Bahamian islands, only 10% of Castaway Cay is developed, leaving plenty of unspoiled area to explore in Robinson Crusoe fashion.

Trams are provided to reach separate beaches designated as for children, teens, families and adults-only activities. In addition to island buffets that serve up barbeque fare and several beverage stations, there are beach games, island-style music, and a shaded game pavilion, there are shops and even a post office.

Age-specific activities and extensive well-planned children’s activities are highlights for everyone and biking and hiking are so popular that a second nature trail has been added to the facilities. Numerous excursions can be booked onboard, ranging from passive (a glass bottom boat tour) to exhilarating (parasailing). One of the most popular is feeding and interacting with stingrays—the gentle creatures’ barbs are blunted for safety.

What to do there: Snorkel, hike, kayak, parasail, sail, fish; ride bicycles, paddle boats, or water cycles; play basketball, billiards, ping-pong, shuffleboard, soccer, or volleyball; participate in organized games; massages; shop
