When Disney wins awards, we can't even act surprised. We can, however, wholeheartedly agree. One of the best parts about taking a cruise is getting a day on a private island to yourself (and an entire cruise ship of people). Cruise line private islands are designed to optimize guest experiences in all ways, so no matter which line you're on, you're in for a great experience. But if you're on a Disney Cruise, you're in for the best experience. Cruise lines like Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess Cruises, Holland America, and, of course, Disney all have private islands of their own — but none is quite like Disney's Castaway Cay.
For the second year in a row, Disney Cruise Line's Castaway Cay in the Bahamas snagged Cruise Critic Cruisers' Choice Destination Award for top cruise line private island. Also for the second year in a row, Castaway Cay was the most highly rated Caribbean island overall. According to Disney, the awards are "based exclusively on firsthand feedback from cruisers themselves" and gathered from reviews posted to the Cruise Critic website over this past year.
With its turquoise waters, countless themed attractions, long list of fun activities and excursions, and, of course, Disney charm, it's no surprise Castaway Cay snagged the top spot for private cruise line island again this year. Yet another reason to book your Disney Cruise ASAP!
