Disney Cruise Line has revealed the inaugural dates and select itineraries for its new island destination in The Bahamas, Lighthouse Point. Along with these summer 2024 sailings, Disney also announced 2024 sailings to the Med, northern Europe, Alaska and the Caribbean.
"We are delighted to take families to new places during the summer 2024 season, including our newest island destination at Lighthouse Point in The Bahamas," said Sharon Siskie, senior vice president and general manager, Disney Cruise Line.
In June 2024, Disney will debut its newest Bahamian destination on the island of Eleuthera at Lighthouse Point. On June 6, a three-night preview cruise on Disney Magic from Fort Lauderdale will offer a sneak peek at Lighthouse Point with limited access to some areas.
Guests sailing onboard a seven-night Disney Fantasy cruise from Port Canaveral on June 8 will also be among the first to visit the spot. The itinerary will feature two stops at Lighthouse Point, alone with one day at Castaway Cay.
Following these inaugural voyages, Lighthouse Point will be a featured port of call on select three-, four-, and five-night sailings on Disney Magic out of Fort Lauderdale.
