    What age can you be a castaway club member?

    Ahoy Marlynn!

    We are so glad you are here because that means you are soon to be cruising or wanting to know more about Disney Cruise Line. Either way, that’s a win-win! In my almost two years on the planDisney panel, I have actually never been asked this question. So this is going to be a fun adventure for us both!

    On the very first cruise with Disney Cruise Line, Guests become part of the Castaway Club. Disney Cruise Line created the Castaway Club to reward frequent cruisers with extra perks like earlier advance booking window dates  and a welcome back aboard gift. 

    Because Guests become members of the Castaway Club on their very first sailing with Captain Mickey, it makes sense that it would apply to anyone regardless of their age. And that appears to be the case because kids and adults earn credit for every voyage they take. Granted, there might be a few limited categories of sailings that might possibly not go towards the Castaway Club tally. But the norm is that each and every itinerary adds up in the Castaway Club count as you work your way from Silver, Gold and ultimately Platinum. I am one more cruise away from Platinum now, and I cannot wait! I think this is especially wonderful for kids since they get to climb the Castaway Club ladder and could potentially reach Platinum status before they are even adults!

    So start booking those cruises and earning those credits towards your Castaway Club status, and hopefully you will be graduating to a new level real soon! As always, reach back out to planDisney if we can help with more planning tips or advice. 

    SEA ya real soon!
