Disney Cruise Line Castaway Cay

Cruising on Disney Cruise Line

We spend a lot of time on the podcast talking about vacations to Walt Disney World. This is mostly because, of all of the Disney vacation options, this is the most popular destination. However, I’ve realized that this means that we neglect the other amazing vacation destinations and that is not our intent.  Without further ado, let’s talk about cruising with Disney Cruise Line! Of all of the Disney vacation destinations, THIS one is actually my favorite. I even gave my kids a choice for our next Disney vacation- Walt Disney World or a Disney Cruise- and they unanimously opted for the cruise. So here we are planning for our next sailing in the Western Caribbean with a Star Wars Day at Sea, and my whole family couldn’t be happier. What sets Disney apart from other cruise lines (and other vacations for that matter) is their attention to detail and their impeccable reputation and customer service. People see the Disney brand and know to expect all of those things. Cruising with Disney Cruise Line is no exception. Clearly, the cruises excel in their ability to truly cater to families. Staterooms are designed to accommodate larger parties with a split bath option, allowing for more space and for several people to get ready at the same time. Obviously, there are no other cruise lines that can compare to the quality of children and teen programming on the Disney Cruise Line. This programming even extends to Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, with exciting activities and even a private, teens-only area of the beach! Speaking of Castaway Cay, I have sailed on other cruise lines and none of those private islands even remotely compares to that of Disney’s. There are more options for excursions on this island than I can even list- you can even participate in a fun 5k run! Guests feel so strongly about Castaway Cay that I’ve even heard of people booking shorter back-to-back cruise itineraries in order to get multiple days on Castaway Cay.  The quality of the ships themselves is spectacular. Disney’s attention to detail is evident at every turn. The food is the best I’ve had on any ship. The pools are clean. The activities are plentiful and the stage shows are Broadway quality. The theming throughout the ships is elegant- still giving the Disney fan a taste of Disney theming, but in a way that is classy, not cheesy. And these cruises are not just for families! Adults can enjoy an adults-only pool, restaurants, the spa, bars and nightclubs, and an adults-only section of the beach on Castaway Cay which is truly secluded from the noise of the family section.

And finally, shore excursions offered on Disney Cruise Line are top notch! The Disney Company is fiercely protective of its’ brand name and requires partner companies to meet very stringent requirements in order to even be eligible to offer services to its’ clients. What does this mean? It means that you know that in every port, the excursions will not only be fun, they will be safe, organized, and top rated. 

This is just a brief summary of all of the options and opportunities awarded to guests aboard the Disney Cruise Line.  Happy cruising with Disney Cruise Line!!!
