We have sailed twice on Disney boats and one of our favorite parts is Castaway Cay! Our first sailing we were not sure we would get off the boat but we decided to and were pleasantly surprised! From the beautiful beach, food that us include, bike ride around the island and water slide....Everything was great!

We sailed Disney's Dream ship to the Bahamas in July. The ship itself was incredible, along with the staff, food and entertainment. However, Castaway Cay- Disney's private island, was paradise! There is something for everyone to do and see. Beautiful!

I just came back from our family Disney Cruise at Castaway Cay. For those of you who want to try fly fishing there, you can go fly fishing HOWEVER you can not fish from the shore !!! Their reasoning is that with all the passengers on the cruise, you might hook someone and it's for their safety. There are about... More

As disney had promised it was as close to paradise as you could get! Amazing way to spend our final hours on the much enjoyed cruise, there was plenty to do for example snorkelling on one of three beaches, water slides for kids and adults, and select water sports or jet skis to hire. Once again the disney food was... More

This is a great attraction, done in typical Disney flare! This is by far the best part of the Disney cruise experience and the cruise is the best. My children love the variety of things that are available to do. The food is a little limited but if you want greater selection the cruise ship is just a few hundred... More

I visited this island in April 2014 while my kids and I were on the Disney Magic cruise. I've been to quite a few Caribbean islands and I have to say this island is now in my top 3 favorites! Disney definitely out did themselves by ending their itinerary with this paradise. They cater to both adults and kids just... More

We visited the island while on the Disney Fantasy. Out of all the places we visited on our Western Caribbean cruise; this was my favourite! Amazing beaches, food, entertainment, activities! We absolutely loved everything about Castaway Cay!

The part of the island that we seen was so pretty, The water is one of the prettiest I seen but it came a rain storm and we end up going back to the ship. We wanted to see the other part of the island but then the rain came again. Hopefully we can go back some day.

We were on a 3 day cruise on the Disney Dream. Castaway Cay is a small island with a massive infrastructure built by Disney. There are several beaches, including a family beach and adults-only beach. You take a tram to get around. There is no shade on the entire island. The cruse staff works on the island, but they have... More
