Just when we thought our trip couldn't get any better while sailing on the Disney Dream, we stopped at Castaway Cay! The place is just wonderful! So many thing to do and the food is great also. As always, the Disney staff goes out of their way to make thing enjoyable. We even really enjoyed the stingray experience. If you... More

Castaway cay is a private island owned by Disney with an amazing beach with beautiful marine life for family to seen when snorkeling. Seeing the colors under the sea with amazing surprises to see when going out under the sun. Also getting to take pictures with your favorite disney characters is also one the best memories that you can make... More

You need to rent a cabana for the best experience on Castaway Cay. A darling welcome sign personalizes your family's arrival. The cabana affords your party access to a private beach (your wrist band identifies you), lovely rope hammocks, refrigerator, towels, in-room snacks and drinks, indoor shelter and a beautiful porch with unobstructed bay views. Cabana number three was far... More

1st Cruise, and it was Wonderful. Disney gave me a free upgrade on my room. Food way incredible, ate at a different restaurant every day. Castaway Cay was Fantastic, swam with the fishies. The staff waited on you hand and foot. They even put a towel folded like origami on your bed each day. Nothing was Bad about this at... More

The last stop on a 7-day carribbean cruise, Disney really knows how to save the best for last! This private island in the Bahamas has literally something for everyone. It took me half an hour to get off of the ship because I couldn't stop taking pictures of the breathtaking views! It is literally like living in a screensaver. The... More

Wife and I are over 55. Cruising for the first time. Chose Disney since our kids and grandkids love Disney. Castaway Cay was something we were looking forward to and we were not disappointed. Serenity Bay, the over 18 beach, is appropriately named. No piped in background music, just the gentle lapping of the waves and an rare overheard conversation.... More

I find it hard to believe that the cruise lines would not clean up this place a bit more, nice beach but has more potential, he snorkeling is poor

My girl friend planned Swedish massages for us, as well as relaxing on beach chairs near the ocean. We ate hamburgers for lunch, and tried chocolate chip cookies. We cruised on the Disney Dream, and some of the guests stayed on the ship.

We took the Fantasy 7 day cruise and enjoyed a day at Castaway Cay. We did a 5k in the morning and then enjoyed the day on the island. You can rent bikes, fish, snorkel, parasail, swim, and so much more. There was a performer who was fantastic. The food was really great for a day on the beach, and... More
