Disney Cruise Line, one of the world’s best-known cruise lines, is opening a new island paradise on Eleuthera, an island in the Bahamas, in the summer of 2024. The island was designed in close collaboration with local artisans and consultants to blend Bahamian culture with Disney’s excellent quality and first-class service. Of particular note is the sustainable design of the island, with environmentally friendly piers and walkways, and a power supply provided by local solar panels.
Relaxation and adventure with Disney characters
Disney Cruise Line’s Island Paradise on Eleuthera offers guests the opportunity to experience relaxation and adventure alongside beloved Disney characters, depending on their mood. The expansive family beach on the east side of the island, centrally located near numerous restaurants, and the exclusive adults-only beach with its own restaurant area, six privately rentable premium cabanas and massage services, are perfect for those seeking relaxation. For active vacations, a spacious water play area with a variety of slides awaits young and old, while the littlest ones will have fun in an Arielle-inspired Kids Club with trained Disney supervision and its own dining area. Other offerings such as a covered play pavilion, volleyball court, watercraft and bicycle rentals provide action-packed variety.
Disney Cruise Line offers nature trails, wildlife and Bahamian culture
Guests discover Eleuthera’s wildlife and natural treasures up close on nature trails for hiking and biking, as well as Bahamian traditions and culture at a Bahamian Arts and Culture Pavilion with special social programs and local artisans.
Bahamian architecture and sustainability
Disney Cruise Line guests can expect white sand beaches and turquoise waters at Lighthouse Point, as well as unique Bahamian architecture with arched light-colored buildings. The building forms symbolize the flora and fauna of the Bahamas as well as the history of the Junkanoo, a Bahamian music and dance genre. Together with local artists and consultants, the island was designed with the charm of Bahamian craftsmanship and with sustainability in mind: At least 90 percent of the electricity needs are met by a local solar system, and the construction of the pier and walkways was done entirely without dredging.
Uncomplicated and relaxed stay for families
Disney’s new island destination offers families a straightforward and relaxing stay, including complimentary services such as towels, loungers, umbrellas, lunch and streetcar transportation. Details on the initial routes, as well as more information on entertainment, restaurants, stores and excursions, will be forthcoming by the time it opens in summer 2024.
