Even More Disney Cruise Line News
We now have more details and concept art (yeah!) for Disney’s second island destination in the Bahamas. This is located on the island Eleutheral, and is called Lighthouse Point.
Disney is doing something special and they are working very closely with Bahamian artists and advisors for this destination. They want a destination that represents the culture of the Bahamas and its natural beauty. Disney describes it as “a vibrant beach retreat infused with the color and energy of Bahamian artistry.”
Disney’s new island destination will be “a vibrant beach retreat infused with the color and energy of Bahamian artistry.”
This island destination will have pristine beaches, but also a recreation center, shopping, dining, a water playground and more. What better way to show Bahamian culture than to have a dedicated cultural pavilion? Cruisers will be able to see stories and traditions that have been passed down through generations of the local residents.
Disney is always working to help save our planet, and they haven’t stopped even with developing this island retreat. They have committed to developing less than 20 percent of the property! Ninety percent of the site’s power will be from solar energy. They will also employ sustainable building practices and donate more than 190 acres of land to the government.
This is one exciting adventure for Disney Cruise Line and guests can expect to set sail here in 2024!
