Castaway Cay, Bahamas


Castaway Cay is a Disney Cruise line’s private island and privileged only for Disney cruise guests. It is an exclusive port for the Disney Cruise Line ships in the Bahamas, near Great Abaco Island. Disney’s Castaway Cay is a tiny 3.1 mile long and 2.2 miles wide island, but offers plenty of activities like waterslides, parasailing, kayaking, a stingray interaction, bike and walking trails, open-air massages, water play areas, fishing, and more.

These photos are from our first ever cruise, Disney Wonder Cruise to Bahamas in the second week of November 2010.

  1. Oh you have seen the world. Sad name for a pretty island,. I wonder how it got its name. Stunning aqua colours the sun brings to the ocean. Certain parts look like a lagoon.

  2. Ohh, did you say Disney and the Bahamas in the same sentence? Yes please! 😀

  3. I have always traded my seasons in vacations.
