I had the most amazing experience at Castaway Cay. Everything about that day was perfect. I wish I could take a vacation just to Castaway Cay and spend a few days here. The food was wonderful and my traveling companion and I rented inner tubes and floated around in the ocean for a while. There are a few souvenir items... More

Although we didn't love CC as much as I thought we would, we still had a nice day. It's obviously great to feel safer than you do at other ports and to not be pestered by locals who are trying to sell you things, and the beaches are very pretty. I was there in November, however, and the water was... More

We just came from our cruise and due to the "polar vortex" the island was a little chilly - low 70's with a lot of wind and a little rain. That did prevent us from enjoying the beautiful beach as much as we would have liked. Also, most of the "third party" provided excursions were canceled and everyone was refunded... More

My husband and I left the kids at home and went on a cruise on the Disney Dream for our anniversary. The stop at Castaway Cay was just wonderful! We went to the "Over 18" beach for the day. It was the most relaxing day of my life. The whole beach is lined with hammocks, lounge chairs and brightly colored... More

Great and relaxing place. We were seriously considering hiding in the jungles and staying on this tiny island forever! Best part of Disney cruise. Love it! We were the last one who came aboard. Hours past by and still so much left to do. So much fun!

Disney is amazing! they definately made it with this one. Only negative thing if you have to look for one... is that the sand has a lot of small stones and shells, which can make it difficult to easily walk on the water, but this is not a deal breaker. After all you are in paradise, so enjoy! a litle... More

So, Disney Cruise Lines is just one example of a simple fact-no one does it like Disney. Be it their theme parks, their movies, their ships, or their islands, Disney leaves no stone unturned in their endless quest for perfection. Their attention to detail is mind blowing, and it shows on Castaway Cay! By way of comparison, we sailed with... More

Our first cruise, Disney Dream was amazing. Castaway Cay is awesome with clean beaches, clear blue water, good food, and not crowded at all. We spent the day at Serenity Bay, the 18 and over beach. Water was cool but when the sun came out it was comfortable. I would suggest renting an inner tube ($10); we spent so much... More

Castaway Cay is so beautiful! It's very close to perfect, just like everything Disney does. There is something for everyone there whether you want to be extremely active or do nothing at all. We loved the snorkeling. The water is very clear and Disney put several little things in the water for you to find. The fish are of course... More

We took a Disney cruise aboard the Disney Wonder and our first stop was on the private island of Castaway Cay. Contrary to our previous cruise on another company, the ship was docked to the island so we did not have to deal with getting the ferry to the island. Once we got off the ship, we had the choice...
