Ahoy, Disney cruise enthusiasts! Get ready to embark on a new era of exclusive island adventures, where enchantment meets the sea breeze. In recent years, private island destinations have captured the imaginations of cruise passengers around the world. These unique retreats offer a blend of branded excellence and a chance to enjoy a slice of paradise. Let’s dive into four upcoming private island destinations that promise to elevate your cruising experience.

**Disney Lighthouse Point**
Since 1998, Disney Cruise Line has whisked passengers away to the magical Castaway Cay. Now, Disney is set to unveil another gem: Lighthouse Point. Nestled on the island of Eleuthera, just a hop, skip, and a jump—well, 114 miles southeast—from Castaway Cay, this destination opens in June 2024. Unlike its sibling, Lighthouse Point isn’t an entirely private island but rather a luxurious beach club. Guests can look forward to a plethora of amenities, including sprawling beaches, a water play area, cabanas, and dining spots. It’s conveniently situated not far from Princess Cays, another private beach club. Disney fans, get ready to make unforgettable memories at this fantastic new haven!

**Carnival’s Celebration Key**
Carnival Cruise Line is upping the ante with Celebration Key in Grand Bahama, set to debut in July 2025. Known for their collaborative efforts in port development across the Caribbean, this time Carnival is going solo. Spanning 65 acres, this lavish destination will accommodate two Excel-class ships upon opening, with plans to double that capacity by 2026. Imagine basking in five distinct ‘portals’—each catering to different tastes and needs, from family-friendly zones to adult-only retreats. Celebration Key is designed to handle a staggering four million passengers annually, ensuring no shortage of Carnival fun and adventure.

**Royal Beach Club, Paradise Island**
Royal Caribbean’s Perfect Day at CocoCay has long been a hallmark of exclusive island enjoyment. However, cruising aficionados can look forward to something new in 2025: Royal Beach Club Paradise Island in Nassau. This 17-acre marvel—a mere stone’s throw from Atlantis and other luxury resorts—offers everything from diving venues to private cabanas. Unlike CocoCay, it’s integrated within a bustling cruise port, promising a truly unique experience with pools, beach bars, and a dash of cosmopolitan flair. Dive into Royal Caribbean’s latest creation and see Nassau like never before.

**Royal Beach Club, Cozumel**
But wait, there’s more! By 2026, Royal Caribbean will expand their beach club magic to Cozumel. The Cozumel club will feature swim-up bars, family-dedicated pools, private cabanas, and dining options fit for royalty. What sets this destination apart is its cultural flair—a street market offering traditional Mexican dishes, tequila tastings, and cooking classes. Coupled with snorkeling and kayaking activities, this beach club is poised to be a treasure trove of experiences.
