Disney Cruise Line has shared more concept art and details about Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point, their new destination on the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas. Sailings will start visiting Lookout Cay in the summer of 2024.
Mabrika Cove is the arrival point of Lookout Cay. “Mabrika” means “welcome” in Taino, the language of the Lucayans, who are the indigenous people of The Bahamas. While the language is no longer used, a few words remain – one of them being “Mabrika.” At this colorful arrival point, guests will immediately experience the warmth of Bahamian culture.
Goombay Cultural Center
The Goombay Cultural Center will embody the essence of “Junkanoo,” a Bahamian festival filled with joyous music and vibrant parades that will come to life in many ways across Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point. Goombay is one of the traditional music styles of The Bahamas, involving singing, dancing, and drumming. The brilliantly colored cultural pavilion and its Junkanoo-inspired arch will invite guests to embrace the traditions of The Bahamas, along with the sights, sounds, and spirit of the country’s signature festival.
More Lookout Cay Offerings
There will be plenty of family entertainment in store at Triton’s Trumpet Stage. The gazebo’s name is inspired by not only Ariel’s father in “The Little Mermaid” but also one of the natural wonders found among the Bahamian beaches – a large, spiraled seashell commonly called “Triton’s Trumpet.”
Treasures of Eleuthera will be the retail shop featuring locally made gifts and artisan crafts. The shop will spotlight Bahamian artists through an array of unique items that families will be able to bring home with them as a special keepsake.
Serenity Bay will be a relaxing retreat exclusively for adults 18 years of age and older. For those of you who have sailed with Disney Cruise Line before, you might recognize Serenity Bay as a location on Disney Castaway Cay. At Disney Lookout Cay, Serenity Bay will feature a tranquil beach experience with a dining area and private cabanas available for reservation.
