The Castaway Club is Disney Cruise Line’s way of recognizing passengers who have sailed with them before. The club has four tiers which include Silver (1 sailing), Gold (5 sailings), Platinum (10 sailings) and the recently added Pearl (25 sailings). Each tier has special benefits for guests including advanced booking windows, photo packages and select port arrival times and check-in.

This year, Disney Cruise Line is celebrating 25 years of operation.

Passengers on select cruises through September are getting the chance to see special anniversary entertainment, purchase merchandise and culinary creations, and experience meet-and-greets with popular Disney characters in new shimmering outfits.
