Lighthouse Point

Looks like Disney Cruise Line will have a new port-of-call in the Bahamas in the future.  The Government of the Bahamas has announced that Disney has completed the purchase of the Lighthouse Point property from the Meritage Hospitality Group.

The agreement was signed in a March 7th meeting of government officials and Disney Island Development.  DCL’s President Jeff Vahle and the Prime Minister of the Bahamas, Hubert Minnis were both on hand for the occasion.

With the Lighthouse Point purchase complete, Disney acquires 190 acres of property, including the southernmost point of the island nation.  It’s expected that the property will be developed into a cruise stop similar to Castaway Cay.

With the addition of several new cruise ships for DCL in the coming years, Lighthouse Point could prove to be a great new stop for itineraries in the Bahamas and Caribbean sailings.  Disney announced that they intend to increase their Bahamian itineraries by 30-40% with the additions to the fleet.

Construction will not begin until the Environmental Impact Assessment and Management plan are reviewed and approved.  The new property is expected to employ a minimum of 120 Bahamians for the construction project.  Once complete, it’s expected to create 150 permanent jobs.

Stay tuned for more information as its announced.
