Starting with cruises in Summer 2024, Disney Cruise Line will welcome guests to a one-of-a-kind island destination at Lighthouse Point.
Lighthouse Point is located on the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas, and the design is inspired by nature with bright, saturated hues, and created in partnership with local artists.
It is also designed to be eco-friendly. 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.
Visitors will have the opportunity to be surrounded by the wonders of nature and get a glimpse into the efforts taking place to conserve wildlife and their unique island habitats.
At Lighthouse Point, families will enjoy a day of fun in the sun as they relax on pristine beaches, embark on active adventures and discover the magic of Bahamian storytelling alongside favorite Disney characters.
Families can relax and play along white sandy beaches and turquoise waters at the expansive family beach on the east side of the island, which will be centrally located near market-style dining, recreation and other amenities.
A Bahamian art and culture pavilion featuring special programs and local artists will provide visitors to Lighthouse Point opportunities to learn and celebrate the traditions and natural beauty of The Bahamas.
Have fun at a brightly-colored, interactive family water play area that will include two slides, water drums, fountains and more, along with a dedicated space for toddlers.
Want something a little more relaxing? North of the family area will be an adult-exclusive beach featuring a glorious stretch of sun-drenched serenity.
It will have a 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 southwestern shore will be lined with 20 premium family cabanas available to rent, including four double cabanas that accommodate larger groups and offer massage services.
It’s Disney, so of course kids have their own area. Children ages 3 to 12 can splash and play at a themed kids’ club under the care of highly-trained 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.
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.
There will also be a collection of new Port Adventures developed in partnership with local tour operators that will take guests beyond Lighthouse Point to explore the rich culture and breathtaking beauty of Eleuthera.
