Disney Dream August and Early September 2021 Sailings Dropping Nassau, Adding Second Stop at Castaway Cay

As the anticipated restart looms on the horizon for the Disney Dream, Disney Cruise Line is modifying the initial batch of sailings from August 9th to September 6th. The 3- and 4-night Bahamian sailings are dropping the scheduled stop in Nassau, and replacing the day with a second stop at Castaway Cay.

The following sailings are now showing as 3- and 4-night Bahamian Cruises from Port Canaveral with 2 stops at Castaway Cay.

It should only be a matter of time now before Disney Cruise Line releases the important information regarding safety protocols as we are fast approaching August 9th.

    I had a feeling they would do this months ago. Personally I think it is an awesome idea. We always book the 2 stop at Castaway cruises so this is awesome for us.

    That’s a start……. We are still waiting for next summer. Lol. Better to be safe than sorry. Florida is a hotspot and the lives of my family I highly value. Medical expenses and side effects can be costly, cause you to lose your livelihood and your joy for future cruises. I rather be smart than desperate. Don’t get me wrong. Do as you all please, but don’t judge me harshly if I disagree with your decisions you are making for you and your family. I am not Russian and don’t play Russian roulette. Also fear is not my name. Respect is, for life and the lives of others, especially my family. If you go, I hope the best for you and your family. Safe cruising.

    Does dropping Nassau and doing 2 stops at Castaway Cay qualify as stopping at a foreign port to satisfy the requirements of the Passenger Vessel Services Act ? If it does, than why go to Nassau at all. Just do 2 stops at Castaway or add a day at sea. In the future they could do Castaway Cay and Lighthouse point As far as the current waiver is concerned, I believe it only reflects Alaska cruises

    Seems like I’m the odd person out. We really don’t like Castaway Key and would always rather go to other Ports. Had some cool plans scheduled for Nassau, that have to now be canceled and, honestly, would like to cancel the cruise if possible. We’ll see what options I have when I call Disney tomorrow morning. Ugh.

    Not quite… Castaway Cay is part of the Bahamas, so is still under that jurisdiction. Disney has ‘whatever’ agreement in place with the Bahamian government in terms of leasing / using the island – but I’m afraid that doesn’t turn Castaway Cay into a sovereign state or anything. 🏝

    @Bob perhaps not sovereign lol but that is what they are doing and it is a great idea and yes there is no further testing required to get off at their private island and no extra insurance as the Bahama’s is requiring if you were going there. Bahama’s has their own health insurance that you are required to purchase if you go there as well as other rules that Disney does not have to enforce. Take a look at the Bahama’s requirements.

    What a welcome change for most folks. I understand a few will likely be disappointed but for the majority this is a far better itinerary than going to Nassau!
