    hi! What is the weather like in January for a 3 day cruise to Nassau and Castaway Cay? Thanks!

    Ahoy, Cathleen!

    Our family has cruised to Nassau and Castaway Cay in January on three separate occasions. The weather was a little different each time.

    On our first cruise, our day at Castaway Cay was slightly overcast and windy. It was warm enough for shorts, and once the clouds cleared a bit, we did go into the crystal clear ocean for a bit. It was a little chilly in the water, but once we got used to it, we had a splash-tacular time!

    One year later, we found ourselves on the Disney Magic, cruising again to Castaway Cay. We had Castaway Ray's Stingray Adventure booked for our party of 8 early in the day. We stood in the water up to our knees to interact with the stingrays. The water was COLD! While it was very sunny, we wandered on the beach in our swimsuits with sweatshirts on. Our kids enjoyed playing in the sand, building sand castles, and I enjoyed laying in the sun on my beach chair.

    Two years later, we once again visited Castaway Cay in January on the DVC Member Cruise. The weather was perfect! We spent the day floating in the beautiful water at Serenity Bay.

    As you can see, the weather in January is unpredictable! But, any day on a Disney Cruise Line vacation is better than a day NOT on a Disney Cruise, right?

    Happy Cruising, Tracy V.
