Disney Cruise Line will welcome guests to a one-of-a-kind island destination at Lighthouse Point. Located on the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas, the destination will welcome guests for the first time in the summer of 2024. The vibrant island retreat will be a unique celebration of Bahamian culture.
“At Disney Cruise Line, we have a deep appreciation for the Bahamian community,” said Sharon Siskie, Disney Cruise Line’s senior vice president and general manager. “We are connected in many ways, including our shared values of storytelling and hospitality. With the opening of Lighthouse Point, visitors from around the world will experience the magic of The Bahamas in a new way, one that truly celebrates its natural and cultural beauty.”
New details have been revealed this week about Lighthouse Point showing a relaxing beach escape designed with families in mind. Guests will discover artistic expressions of the native flora and fauna of The Bahamas and the pageantry and history of Junkanoo parades. Throughout the destination, references to playful folklore characters will evoke the warmth and charm of the local culture. Complimentary beach essentials (towels, chairs and umbrellas and lunch) and convenient tram transportation will be provided.
A brightly-colored, interactive family water play area will include two slides, water drums, fountains and more, along with a dedicated space for toddlers. Additional recreational activities will be available for kids and kids-at-heart, including a covered gaming pavilion; a volleyball court and gaga ball pit; watercraft and bicycle rentals; nature trails for hiking and biking; and more.
Children ages 3 to 12 will splash and play at a themed kids’ club under the care of Disney Cruise Line counselors. It will include a splash pad inspired by favorite undersea creatures from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “The Little Mermaid,” plenty of shade and a dedicated dining area.
North of the family area will be an adult-exclusive beach with dedicated dining area for convenient access to food and drinks throughout the day, plus six private cabanas available by reservation.
Set away from the activity of the main family area, a peaceful beach along the south-western shore will be lined with 20 premium family cabanas available to rent, including four double cabanas that accommodate larger groups and offer massage services.
At least 90 percent of the destination’s electricity needs will be met by an onsite solar array, the pier was designed to avoid the need for dredging and elevated walkways will help limit impact on the landscape.
