When you take a full length cruise, there are usually multiple ports of call with all kinds of onshore activities to choose from. In this case, the port of call was Disney’s private island Castaway Cay.
Similar to the original Far Cry game, the water is crystal clear, and there was nothing like feeling soft sand between your toes (minus the machine gun fire). There are all kinds of activities that happen on the island for all age groups. While we were content to just enjoy the sun on the beach, you can also go snorkeling, feed Stingrays, and more. There is also an adult section of the island which we didn’t have time to check out.
Just be aware that you’re going to an ocean beach, not a swimming pool. When I walked into the water with my son, I noticed a black dot circling me. Then I saw another black dot. It took me a few seconds to realize that these dots were pupils attached to several big fish! There is nothing to be scared of in the least – just keep an eye out.
