Send any winter weather troubles packing and
picture this reality: Clear–blue skies, white sand beneath your
feet, and a balmy breeze blowing across your face. If Castaway Cay
doesn't immediately come to mind, soon you'll have firsthand
experience with Disney's private island paradise—during the S.S.
Member Cruise 2007, October 21–25, 2007, we're scheduled to make two
The average high temperature in October is a warm 84°F/ 27°C, so
no need to pack the parka. If Mother Nature is at the top of her
game, get ready to play in the sun and soak up the fun at Castaway
Cay! Whether you're a veteran cruiser or a first–timer getting his
or her "sea legs," much fun awaits you ashore.
On Castaway Cay, as onboard the Disney Wonder®, you can be as
active as you want or choose to relax in a quiet spot. Since the
S.S. Member Cruise 2007 is scheduled to make two stops to this
Bahamian oasis, there's plenty of time to do both!
Life's truly a beach at Castaway Cay. Castaway Family Beach features an aquatic
playground, volleyball on the shore, snorkeling in the ocean, and
tons of family–centric fun. The Teen Beach is tailor–made for teenagers, a
place where they can kick back under a palm tree with friends, and
snorkel, swim, and kayak, too. Serenity Bay, reserved exclusively for
Guests 18 and over, provides a secluded adult area where the
soundtrack of waves lapping the shore provides peaceful
accompaniment to lounging, relaxing, or otherwise unwinding.
Yet another beach at Castaway Cay serves as the setting
for what has become a Member Cruise tradition: the Group Photo. All
Members will be invited to Boat Harbor Beach during our second
scheduled stop to Castaway Cay, capturing this impressive gathering
as a photo keepsake for you.
During your exploration of Castaway Cay, also be sure to visit
the snorkel lagoon to look for the family of Blue Tang fish—like
Dory in Disney/Pixar's Finding Nemo—swimming near the
submersed Mickey Mouse statue!
If you're looking to fill your island itinerary,
consider one or more exciting Shore Excursions. Set your sights on a
high–flying parasailing adventure. Enjoy a wet and wild banana boat
ride. Tour the grounds by pedaling the island's scenic pathways.
View the ocean's wonders through the looking glass—literally—during
an unforgettable glass–bottom boat tour. Go snorkeling, go kayaking,
go fishing—just go!
With so many Shore Excursions to choose from, you'll
find something that's perfect for every age and activity level. As
we noted in the previous edition of Cruise News, Disney
Cruise Line® accepts reservations for Shore Excursions up to 75
days in advance of sailing (90 days in advance for Castaway Club
members and 105 day in advance for Concierge Guests), so now is a
good time to begin considering these options.
The Disney Vacation Club team is working hard to
ensure the S.S. Member Cruise 2007 is an unforgettable voyage, and
future editions of Cruise News will reveal more about the
exclusive activities and events that we're planning. Based on our
past S.S. Member Cruise events, you and your Disney Vacation Club
neighbors can look forward to a boatload of fantastic treats,
spectacular surprises, and countless memories!
"Sea" you real soon,
