Just got back from a 7 night cruise on Disneys Fantasy which stopped for the day at Castaway Cay. This island was my favorite spot. The snorkeling is amazing. They have it set up with sunken ships, statues and even the original sub from 20,000 leagues under the sea ride. We saw a small nurse shark, sea turtle, stingray, and... More

I am sure the family beach is fine but my husband and I were alone when we visited here so we took advantage of the adults only beach. Complete serenity! There were maybe 20-30 people out the whole day on the beach. We had booked the private cabana which included a hammock, a shack out of the shade with complimentary... More

We visited Castaway Cay on the second day of our three night cruise to the Bahamas on the Disney Dream. What can I say, it is exactly what I expected the Bahamas to be like, a real contrast from Nassau the day before which was very touristy and intimidating. We took the tram to Serenity Bay which was the beach... More

This was our first Disney Cruise and we picked this cruise because we wanted to visit Castaway Cay. It did not disappoint, we had a glitch see further down for details, but we didn't let this ruin our time. We had an early breakfast and were 2nd in line to get off the ship to get a good spot on...

Castaway Cay is Disney's private island in the Bahamas and is reserved for Disney Cruise Line guests. The island has multiple beaches, including an adults only section, and lots of activities (i.e. bike rentals, snorkelling bay, jet ski rentals, boat tours, parasailing, and more!). Multiple characters, including Mickey himself, make appearances throughout the day on the island ready for some... More

For a fee you can do a stingray adventure, parasail,boating, and snorkel. I do not feel... More

I've read great things about Disney cruises but my budget is limited. The Dream berth from Port Canaveral to Nassau and to Disney's private Castaway Cay was a great choice for our family, and booking through Leigh McCarty at Small World Vacations allowed this novice family of cruisers to have some help with the planning and budgeting. I truly believe... More

We spent four hours on this island with a young toddler. While four hours isn't long for most families, it was plenty of time for a 13 month old. There are a number of things to do on the island. Most of the activities are geared towards the five and up crowd. There were limited things for my daughter to... More
