RUMOR – Disney Cruise Line Acquiring Second Island in the Bahamas


With Disney announcing three new cruise ships, could they be looking at acquiring a second private island?

A Naussau newspaper has confirmed that Disney Cruise Lines has expressed interest in a property called Lighthouse Cay (which is now off the market.)

DISNEY Cruise Lines does have an interest in furthering its investments in the Bahamas, according to the company’s spokeswoman, Kim Prunty, who yesterday responded to speculation and concern over the sale and development of Lighthouse Point, Eleuthera.

In a statement to The Tribune yesterday, Mrs Prunty confirmed the cruise line’s interest in the Bahamas, but did not name any specific site or property shortlisted for acquisition and development.

Disney Cruise Lines has recently been at the centre of speculation, with several sources on Eleuthera naming the company as the group behind the potential acquisition and development of the Lighthouse Point site.

Disney Cruise Line currently has a 99 year lease on Castaway Cay, which is still largely undeveloped.

Clearly, with three new ships on the way, Disney will have to expand its offerings. Stay tuned to The Kingdom Insider for more information on Disney’s possible plans for a second island as we hear them.

I've loved Disney as long as I can remember. As a former newspaper editor, web developer, and Disney comics freelancer, I'm able to combine that experience into writing about Disney online. I'm also the co-host of a Disney fan podcast called 'Pirates & Princesses.' Opinions mine.


  1. I’m all for Disney launching more cruise ships and acquiring another island, but maybe this one should be developed a bit more? Pirates Of The Caribbean fans would probably love a real-life Port Royal and Tortuga they could sail to, as well as shop and dine in.
