Castaway Cay Named Top Cruise Line Private Island

What do you love most about Disney Castaway Cay, our private island in the Bahamas? Is it the gorgeous white-sand beaches? Sliding and splashing into turquoise waters from Pelican Plunge? The peace and tranquility of Serenity Bay, our adult-exclusive beach? Or, like me, is it exploring the natural beauty of the island pedaling bikes with family?

Well, the members of Cruise Critic have spoken and apparently love all of the above – and everything else our magical island has to offer!

For the second year in a row, Disney Castaway Cay has been named the Top Cruise Line Private Island in the annual Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Destination Awards. Also for the second year in a row, Castaway Cay was the most highly rated Caribbean island overall among reviewers, beating out all other Caribbean islands!

These awards are based exclusively on firsthand feedback from cruisers themselves, gathered from reviews posted to the Cruise Critic website over this past year. Cruise Critic, is one of the leading cruise review and information sites, offering a resource for travelers and hosting the world’s largest online cruise community.

So tell me, what is your favorite thing about Castaway Cay?


  • They have an adult beach! It’s beautiful and quiet, calm waters.

  • Getting a massage in a cabana at Serenity Bay followed by a Konk Kooler on the beach is the absolute best! Not surprised you guys won again, such an awesome island!

  • Castaway Cay has been my all time favorite since I started cruising with Disney in 2014?!! Love ❤️ the beautiful water, sand, palm trees, and laid back atmosphere!! The hammocks are great to!! This is one of the most beautiful islands I’ve seen?and the icing on the cake is it’s Disney!!!
