Disney Cruise Line has announced new details for Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point, their new retreat in the Bahamas. Here’s the announcement:
Today, we’re excited to give a closer look at some of the exciting venues that will be found at Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point.
Disney Lookout Cay is Disney Cruise Line’s newest, one-of-a-kind retreat on the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas. As soon as guests step foot on this breathtaking island destination when it debuts in summer 2024, they will discover a celebration of Bahamian storytelling, artistry and culture.
Let’s start with a first look at the arrival point, Mabrika Cove.
“Mabrika” means “welcome” in Taino, the language of the Lucayans, who are considered the indigenous people of The Bahamas. While the language is no longer used, a few words remain – one of them being “Mabrika,” At this colorful arrival point, guests will immediately experience the warmth of Bahamian culture.
This next space is guaranteed to be the most festive on the island! The Goombay Cultural Center will embody the essence of “Junkanoo,” a Bahamian festival filled with joyous music and vibrant parades that will come to life in many ways across Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point. Goombay is one of the traditional music styles of The Bahamas, involving singing, dancing and drumming. The brilliantly colored cultural pavilion and its Junkanoo-inspired arch will invite guests to embrace the traditions of The Bahamas, along with the sights, sounds and spirit of the country’s signature festival.
There will be plenty of family entertainment in store at Triton’s Trumpet Stage. And fun fact: The gazebo name is inspired by one of the stunning natural wonders found among the Bahamian beaches – a large, spiraled seashell commonly called “Triton’s Trumpet.”
Of course, we must mention the shopping opportunities! Treasures of Eleuthera will be the retail shop featuring locally made gifts and artisan crafts. The shops will spotlight Bahamian artists through an array of unique items that families will be able to bring home with them as a special keepsake.
Serenity Bay will be a relaxing retreat exclusively for adults 18 years of age and older. Guests who have sailed with Disney Cruise Line before might recognize Serenity Bay as a must-visit location on Disney Castaway Cay! At Disney Lookout Cay, Serenity Bay will feature a tranquil beach experience with a dining area and private cabanas available for reservation.
Relaxation, breathtaking nature, cultural celebrations, and Disney entertainment for all? We’re excited for guests to experience all that Disney Lookout Cay has to offer when this island destination debuts in summer 2024! There is so much more in store for this incredible Bahamian retreat, so keep following along for all the details.
