In addition to these on board cruise ship jobs, Disney Cruise Line also employs a large staff at its private island, Castaway Cay in the Bahamas, including tram drivers, landscapers, and other employees.
Each ship visits Disney's private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay, regularly, and two new, larger ships are scheduled to debut in 2011 and 2012 to offer even more options for seafaring Disney fans.
In addition, last minute cruises on Disney are not limited exclusively to the Bahamas, where the company owns Castaway Cay, a private island where passengers can frolic on white, sugar sand beaches.
Disney Cruise Line offers a four-night Bahamas cruise that sets sail from Port Canaveral, Florida, with one day in Castaway Cay, one day at sea, and one day in Nassau.
Disney Cruise Line operates two ships, the Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder, which travel to Disney's private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay.
The main islands and groups, beginning from the north-west, are as follows: Little and Great Abaco, with Great Bahama to the west; Eleuthera (a name probably corrupted from the Spanish Isla de Tierra), Cat, Watling, or Guanahani, and Rum Cay on the outer line towards the open ocean, with New Providence, the Exuma chain and Long Island forming an inner line to the west, and still farther west Andros (named from Sir Edmund Andros, governor of Massachusetts, &c., at the close of the 17th century; often spoken of as one island, but actually divided into several by narrow straits); and finally the Crooked Islands, Mayaguana and Inagua.
Fox, identified San Salvador, on seemingly good grounds, with Samana (Atwood Cay), which lies about midway between Watling and Mariguana.
The chief towns are Bluefields or Blewfields, Magdala on Pearl Cay, Prinzapolca on the river of that name, Vounta near the mouth of the Cuculaia, and Carata near the mouth of the Wawa.
Local tradition connects the name with that of Wallis or Wallace, a Scottish buccaneer, who, in 1638, settled, with a party of logwood cutters, on St George's Cay, a small island off the town.
Salt Cay has a good harbour.
