    Disney Cruise Line has announced dates and itineraries for its new island destination in the Bahamas, Lighthouse Point, bookable from summer 2024.

    In June 2024, Disney Cruise Line will launch its Bahamian beach retreat on the island of Eleuthera at Lighthouse Point, designed specifically for families to bring “the colour and energy of Bahamian artistry…developed with a commitment to conservation at its core”.



    On June 8, the inaugural seven-night sailing on board Disney Fantasy cruise ship will depart from Port Canaveral, Florida, carrying some of the first guests to step foot inside Lighthouse Point.

    Guests currently can visit one Disney-owned private island, Castaway Cay. But they will soon have another. The Walt Disney Company is making significant progress on Lighthouse Point, a $400 million private island. Disney Cruise Line confirmed swirling rumors that they would purchase the unfinished German ship, Royal Dream. In a Disney Parks Blog post, Disney announced that the purchase was complete.

    Proper concept art released.



    Disney is collaborating closely with Bahamian artists and advisors to develop a destination that reflects the natural beauty and culture of the Bahamas and brings them to life through Disney storytelling and the assistance of a local cast and crew, according to Josh D'Amaro, experiences and products chairman, Disney Parks.

    The latest visualizations revealed by the company portray a beach retreat surrounded by Bahamian artistry. Disney’s second island destination amenities will further include a recreation center, dining options, shops, a water playground, and a cultural pavilion, among others.

    At D23 Disney revealed new concept art for Lighthouse Point.

  10. On April 28th, Disney’s Regional Public Affairs Director Joseph Gaskins announced that Disney has begun preparation of Lighthouse Point site.

    Gaskins, who made his remarks about the Disney project at Eleuthera Business Outlook, explained that hiring for construction will be about two times larger than had originally been anticipated. Gaskins explained that about 300 people will be employed at the height of construction, with 80 percent of that complement being Bahamian throughout the life of the build. He added that Disney continues to work toward making employment on its private island Castaway Cay 100 percent Bahamian.

    Disney promised to make its Lighthouse Point project low-density. Gaskins said the company has held firm to that promise, especially by donating 20 percent of the land it owns at Lighthouse Point to the Bahamian government.

    Gaskins added that Disney intends to hold fast to its promise to allow Bahamians to continue to access the Lighthouse Point property, which is seen as one of the last unspoiled areas of the island, although for a long time the property has been privately owned, though not developed, until it was purchased by Disney.

    “We have promised full access to the site for citizens and residents for non-commercial purposes,” said Gaskins.

    The company has also ensured that Bahamian entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to sell locally produced goods and operate shore excursions.

    Gaskins also explained that Disney has asked for no concessions outside of those already provided by the Hotels Encouragement Act.
