Exclusivity, superb relaxation, and unique experiences are three reasons to choose a private island getaway on your next cruise. Combine that with the fact that many activities on private islands might already be included in your cruise fare. The same can’t often be said for other ports of call. Here are some of our favorite private island cruises for families.
Disney’s Castaway Cay in the Bahamas
Disney meets island life in the Bahamas for premium family leisure. Needless to say, Disney knows what families are looking for, and they created Castaway Cay with that especially in mind.
Expect walks along sprawling beaches meeting clear, turquoise-hued waters. Plus, adults will love the adult-only beach for some extra exclusivity and relaxation. And don’t worry, the kids can hop over to the Scuttle's Cove, the island’s supervised kids club. Older kids will love the chilled-out Teen Hideout.
Then, bring the family together for good times at Castaway Family Beach. Here you can enjoy loads of activities from kayaking, snorkeling in the blue lagoon, food at Cookie’s BBQ, plus live music, outdoor sports, and more.
That’s not even all you can do during this family-friendly private island cruise. Take the free tram to other parts of the island (1,000 acres of it) for shopping, boat rides, waterparks, and spotting favorites like Goofy or Minnie Mouse. This is a Disney private island after all!

If you and your family are hoping to soak up the rich marine and wildlife of the Bahamas, Great Stirrup Cay might be the perfect private island for you! This Norwegian Cruise Line private island offers no shortage of ways to get out and enjoy the sunshine.
For starters, you can swim with playful swimming pigs or snorkel with sea turtles and colorful fish. The outdoorsy adventures keep on going, though. Kayak around its pristine waters or walk on velvety white sand and enjoy the Caribbean Sea in all of the best ways!
You can even go further below the surface for a special snorkeling adventure. See a unique underwater sculpture garden as you and the family snorkel around colorful fish.
And when you just want to relax, there’s plenty of space for that too. Pull up a beach chair at Fiesta Beach, Cabana Beach, or Bertram’s Cove and enjoy a complimentary meal at one of the island restaurants.
