Disney Cruise Line (DCL) has announced the inaugural dates and select itineraries for Lighthouse Point, its new island destination in The Bahamas, headlining a season full of new and guest-favorite itineraries around the world in summer 2024.

First Sailings to Lighthouse Point

In June 2024, Disney Cruise Line will debut its newest Bahamian destination on the island of Eleuthera at Lighthouse Point.

Guests sailing aboard the Disney Magic from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, will discover this beach retreat designed with families in mind, infused with the color and energy of Bahamian artistry, and developed with a commitment to conservation at its core.

A seven-night inaugural sailing aboard the Disney Fantasy from Port Canaveral, Florida, on June 8, 2024, will allow guests to be among the first to make a splash in the crystal-clear waters of this new destination at Lighthouse Point.

This ultimate Disney Cruise Line island destination itinerary will feature two stops at Lighthouse Point and one day at Castaway Cay.

A few days earlier, on June 6, a three-night preview cruise on the Disney Magic from Fort Lauderdale will offer a sneak peek of Lighthouse Point with limited access to some areas.

Following the inaugural voyage, Lighthouse Point will be a featured port of call on select three-, four- and five-night sailings to The Bahamas and Caribbean on the Disney Magic out of Fort Lauderdale.

These itineraries will vary stops between Lighthouse Point and Castaway Cay, with five special departures including both Disney Cruise Line island destinations.
