Cruise Line Private Islands

As you may know, we just got back from our wonderful cruise aboard the Disney Wonder. I cannot say enough about how fantastic the cruise was. For more information on our Disney cruise, you can check out our upcoming Cruise & Country Video.

One of the highlights of the cruise was stopping at Castaway Cay, Disney Cruise Lines private island. If you are taking a cruise to the Caribbean or the Bahamas, most likely you will stop at the cruise line’s private island as one of your ports. They are typically small islands that are owned and operated by the cruise line. The private islands are for the exclusive use of that cruise lines guests.

Most private islands have some of the same amenities such as amazing beaches with beach chairs and umbrellas, hammocks, water sports, barbeque lunch, outdoor bars, etc… The great thing about visiting one of the private islands is that you don’t need to bring cash…most things can be charged directly to your cabin card. This makes it so much easier to get off the ship. Castaway Cay is the only private island where the ship will dock directly at the island. The other islands will have tenders take you onto the island.

So, what cruise lines have their own private island and what is there to know about each one? Below you will find a list of the islands. Click on the names to take you to all you ever wanted to know about each one.

I hope you enjoy your next cruise to one of these great destinations. If you have been to one already and would like to share your experiences, please do so!
