Disney Cruise Line trip report – Day 3 – Castaway Cay

| March 11, 2009

There is no doubt that the crown jewel in DIsney’s empire is a small island 60 miles off the cost of Nassau called Castaway Cay.  Of all the attractions, shows, hotels and theme parks in Disney’s realm – in my humble opinion, NOTHING compares to this.  No matter how many times I visit this island, I’m immediately rendered breathless by the tranquility and beauty of what Disney has created here.  This, ladies and gentlemen, is worth the price of the cruise all by itself, and I promise that a day on Castaway Cay is a day you won’t soon forget.

This sign welcomes you to the Island….I live to see this sign !!!

The Black Pearl (yes, the one from the movie) is permanently docked just off shore and makes a great photo!

I’m not sure what the “Daily Buzz” is…but it sure makes a great sandcastle!!

The area of the beach reserved for recreation – kayaks, jet ski’s, and other assorted water craft are available for rent.

A closer look…

Nature Boy (Walter) was tickled by the site of this bird trying to eat out of the ice cream machine.  It’s pretty cute!

There is no shortage of character interaction on the island, and more often than not, you’ll happen upon a character just walking around.

That’s a play area in the water just off the Family beach.

If you’re so inclined, bikes are available for rent on the island.

The castaways plane.

This might be the best picture Walter has ever taken (and he’s taken some good ones).  This was shot from the deck of the ship as a jet ski passed by.  Look at how clear that water is – you can swim in that!!

Another great jet ski shot!

    I may try and convince Gav that we should have a go on the jet skis! I have done it before in Panama City Beach and loved it!

    Love the blogs! I love reading about the cruises and would love to take one! And I don’t mean to be… well… annoying but that’s the Flying Dutchman- not the Black Pearl. :)

    “The Daily Buzz” is a syndicated morning news show aimed at the 20-something crowd. It’s an odd mix of serious news, wacky commentary and hip hop music… Great trip so far, Pete !

    But, what’s with the dinky 13 inch CRT TV in the cabin ? NO flat screens, Disney ?? ;-)

    Hey, i have some additional information. Please check it out

    Beginning in January, children under the age of 15 years will sail for free aboard the disney cruise specials accompanied by their parents for 3 days and 4 nights in the Bahamas from the date of 7 January 2010 until 15 April 2010. It is money saving of about 300-700 dollars per child, depending on the type of room you choose, book also a cruise for 3 days and 4 nights in Nassau and a private island at Castaway Cay Disney.
