    Disney inks deal for second private cruise destination in Bahamas

    By Tom Stieghorst / Cruise / Travel Weekly/ Travelweekly.com / October 23, 2018

    “Disney Cruise Line has won preliminary approval from the Bahamian government to build a destination for its ships on the southern tip of the island of Eleuthera, about 75 miles east of Nassau.

    The approval, which was opposed by conservationists, came from the Bahamian cabinet. A final agreement must be negotiated between the government and Disney, and the Bahamian Parliament must sign off.

    The project has been named Lighthouse Point, after a historic lighthouse on the property. Disney has a purchase agreement with the current owner to buy the site, a government statement said.

    Plans call for the project to be finished sometime between 2021 and 2023. It would be the second private destination operated by Disney in the Bahamas. The first, Castaway Cay, opened in 1998 and is a frequent stop for Disney's four ships.

    A pending expansion would increase the size of Disney's fleet to seven ships by 2023. Disney recently reached agreement with PortMiami to place two ships there, one operating year-round on short cruises starting in 2023 and a second operating seasonally on seven-day itineraries in 2024. Port Canaveral officials have said they expect two of the three new ships to be based there initially.”
