Dreaming of Castaway Cay is one of the great ways to put a smile on your face between trips. The little island in the Bahamas offers a day of relaxation or a day of adventure. The choice is always yours.
You can start off the day with the Castaway Cay 5k, a free fun run that you can sign up for onboard. After a few days of cruise food, this is almost a necessity.
There are even medals for completing the race.
Snorkeling in the lagoon is another go-to activity. It is always fun to see the Nautilus and the Mickey and Minnie figurines. For a more enjoyable experience, I suggest getting into the lagoon early when there a fewer people snorkeling.
Castaway Cay is more than just a day at the beach. You can get a great self-guided tour of the island by renting bikes. This is also one of the best-priced port adventures available.
The bikes are great for getting the observation tower and to the furthest point along Serenity Bay.
Feeling like treating yourself? Then play the cabana lottery for a chance to spend the day in your own little private oasis – there isn’t a lottery, it is not an easy task to score a family beach cabana. The Cabanas are far and away a magical experience.
Regardless of what you choose to do, Castaway Cay is always a fun time. My favorite activity at Castaway Cay is nothing, just like the specialty dessert at Palo. Seriously, I am content to find a hammock under a palm tree and nap!
Oh, I almost forgot. There is something even better than a day at Castaway Cay… A DOUBLE DIP, two days at Castaway Cay during the same cruise! These sailings are offered mostly during the summer and around certain holidays giving you more time during the same vacation to enjoy the private island.
