What can Visitors Expect from Disney Cruise Line New Island Destination?
Disney Cruise Line has revealed some of the facilities at this new island destination in the Bahamas that cruise travelers can look forward to in 2024. Designed with adventure in mind, Lighthouse Point will offer a wide range of fun activities, pristine beaches, world-class facilities, and much more.
Unique Bahamian-Style Design
To evoke the charm of the local cultural heritage, Disney Cruise Line has decided to make the new curvilinear buildings resemble seashells. Some of the other features throughout this charming island resort will represent native plants and animals of Eleuthera, as well as folklore characters.
Lighthouse Point Amenities
Lighthouse Point is thoughtfully designed to provide cruise passengers with a variety of amenities for a stress-free day out. Visitors can look forward to convenient tram transportation and complimentary beach essentials including chairs, umbrellas, and towels. Cruise passengers can also rent a handful of private cabanas (20 premium family cabanas and 6 private cabanas on the adult-exclusive beach) and enjoy complimentary lunch at various food outlets across the island.
One of the main attractions at Disney Cruise Line’s Lighthouse Point will be the white sandy beaches with swaying palm trees and crystal-clear waters. Passengers can relax on the expansive family beach on the island’s eastern shore. This beach will be located a stone’s throw from recreation areas and market-style dining. The adults-only beach with a dedicated dining area will be located north of the family area.
Activities for All Ages
There will be no shortage of activities for all ages at this brand-new island destination in the Bahamas. From an interactive waterpark with two slides, water drums, and fountains to a covered gaming pavilion, volleyball court, and nature trails for biking and hiking, there is plenty to look forward to when visiting this brand-new island destination.
Local Culture and Sustainability
Disney Cruise Line’s Lighthouse Point will feature a Bahamian art and culture pavilion where cruise ship passengers can learn more about the local traditions and culture. Disney also says how at least 90% of the electricity needed in Lighthouse Point will be generated from solar panels.
“Lighthouse is a place of extraordinary natural beauty, so our goal has always been to create designs that accentuate its qualities in an organic way. We’re focused on low-density, sustainable development that protects and preserves the environment, allowing the site’s biodiversity to shine.”Walt Disney’s Imagineering creative director Kevin Thomas
