Disney Cruise Line shares new details on Lookout Cay

Disney Lookout Cay is Disney Cruise Line’s newest, one-of-a-kind retreat on the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas, an experience included in Disney Cruise itineraries. 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.

Mabrika Cove will be the destination’s arrival point. “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. 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.”

Treasures of Eleuthera will be the retail shop featuring locally made gifts, and the shop will spotlight Bahamian artists and artisans through an array of unique items that families will be able to bring home with them as a special keepsake.

The island destination will also feature an adult-only retreat. Adults visiting Disney Lookout Cay will be able to enjoy one of our guest-favorite locations from Disney Castaway Cay, Serenity Bay, which 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 will highlight this island destination when it debuts in summer 2024.
