4 NIGHT Bahamas CRUISE with Disney Cruise Line
Disney Dream at Castaway Cay
Your four night Disney cruise departs from Port Canaveral with one day at sea, then heads to Castaway Cay, Disney's own piece of paradise in the Bahamas, where games, watersports and private beaches await. The following day, on to historic Nassau for a day of shopping, sightseeing or water park fun at Atlantis Aquaventure. Back onboard soak up Broadway-style shows, enchanting themed dining, delightful deck parties and activities for the whole family. Disney Cruise Line is renowned as a top cruise choice for families - there are always kids' activities available, premium entertainment, and excellent dining options. Disney's goal, though, includes pampering adults as well. It may surprise you that Disney has more adults only dedicated spaces on its ships than competitors.
