Disney Cruise Line’s tropical paradise Castaway Cay suffered some minor damage when Hurricane Dorian passed through the Bahamas. Thankfully, the damage to Castaway Cay was limited and Disney expects the island to reopen on September 12, 2019.
In addition to announcing an expected reopening date, Disney noted that some experiences on the island may be unavailable. Below is the full statement from Disney seen on September 8, 2019.
Guests sailing on the Disney Dream when it dropped off supplies at Castaway Cay reported seeing workers repairing the beach areas guests enjoy during their visit. Reports have also stated that Serenity Bay, the adults-only beach, was hit the hardest due to its position on the island.
Castaway Cay is widely considered the shining star of Disney Cruise Line’s itineraries in the Caribbean. Though Disney notes that guests may notice damage left behind by the storm, it sounds like Castaway Cay was extremely fortunate to avoid some of the most damaging winds.
