A Look at Pearl Castaway Club “Welcome Aboard” Stateroom Gifts

Hi everyone!

The Disney Cruise Line ‘Silver Anniversary at Sea’ celebration has begun, celebrating 25 years of the Disney Cruise Line! I still remember my first Disney Cruise Line sailing in 1998 on the Disney Magic. It is hard to believe 25 years have passed since then. And with that milestone comes the newest Castaway Club Membership tier – Pearl, which rewards cruisers who have sailed on at least 25 Disney Cruise Line vacations.

Beci Mahnken, owner of our travel partner MEI-Travel and Mouse Fan Travel is currently onboard the Disney Wish, the newest ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet. She has shared photos of her Pearl Castaway Club stateroom gift.

The Pearl Castaway Club “Welcome Aboard” stateroom gift includes a bag, beach towel, pearlescent tumblers and a wet/dry bag. All Castaway Club welcome gifts have been refreshed this summer.

She also received this Castaway Club lanyard.

The pearlescent tumblers say “Castaway Club” and “Disney Cruise Line”. These are special for the Pearl membership tier.

Beci also shared a look at the Gold Castaway Club gift. The tote bag is available to Castaway Club Silver and up. The wet/dry bag is available for Gold Castaway Club and up. The beach towel is available for Platinum and up. And the tumblers are available to Pearl Castaway Club (and the Pearl tier receives all the other gifts).


We recommend our travel partner MEI – Travel and Mouse Fan Travel for booking your Disney Cruise Line vacation!

Here is information from the Disney Cruise Line about the Pearl Castaway Club membership tier, as originally posted on the Disney Parks Blog.

As part of our countdown to the “Silver Anniversary at Sea” Disney Cruise Line celebration, we’ve been sharing details about the newest tier of Castaway Club, Pearl. And today, we’re excited to reveal more of the magic awaiting our most loyal guests.

What is Castaway Club you ask? Castaway Club is our special way of recognizing Disney Cruise Line guests who have continued to sail time and time again. Members are rewarded with exclusive at-home and onboard benefits that add an extra layer of magic to their Disney cruise experience. 

For nearly two-and-a-half decades, members of the Castaway Club have played an integral role in the Disney Cruise Line story. The new membership tier was named “Pearl” to honor the valued relationship we have formed with guests over the years and is inspired by the time it takes for a pearl to be formed in nature. With the launch of Pearl this summer on May 1, cruisers who have sailed on at least 25 Disney Cruise Line vacations will have access to more rewards and perks than ever before. 

Unlimited Digital Downloads: Bring Home Memories That Last a Lifetime

On every Disney Cruise Line sailing, professional photographers capture pictures to help families preserve their most precious vacation souvenir of all – the memories made at sea. As a special “thank you” from Disney Cruise Line, Pearl Castaway Club members will unlock unlimited complimentary digital downloads, so they can cherish each magical moment for years to come.

The First to Know: Book Disney Cruise Line Vacations Before Anyone Else

When it comes to the ever-expanding list of exciting Disney Cruise Line itineraries, Castaway Club Pearl members will be the very first guests to reserve their spot! The new membership tier introduces an early booking window that opens four days before the general public will gain access.

 Early Access: Customize Your Cruise Ahead of Time

Whether you’re seeking unplugged relaxation, active excursions abroad or enchanting encounters with beloved characters, Disney Cruise Line offers a wide range of onboard and onshore activities that let you customize your cruise. From character dining experiences and adult-only beverage tasting seminars to Port Adventures and Senses Spa & Salon appointments, there is something for everyone. Pearl members will have the added benefit of scheduling activities before anyone else with an exclusive booking window that opens 123 days before the date of their next cruise beginning later this summer. 

Stateroom Surprises: Receive a Warm Welcome from Disney Cruise Line 

This summer, all Castaway Club members can look forward to a refreshed assortment of welcome aboard gifts awaiting them in their staterooms. As a part of this special surprise, Pearl members will receive a pair of beautiful pearlescent tumblers that are perfect for hydrating in style during their Disney Cruise vacation. Gifts will be limited to one per stateroom and are always subject to change and based on availability. 

Complimentary Dinner at Palo: Be Our Guest During a Signature Dining Experience 

Beloved by new and returning cruise goers alike for its Italian-inspired cuisine and romantic atmosphere, Palo is one of Disney Cruise Line’s signature adult-exclusive restaurants. Being hosted for dinner at Palo has become a favorite perk for Platinum Castaway Club members over the years. And now, guests who have earned Pearl membership status can also look forward to a complimentary dining experience at Palo during their next voyage, based on reservation availability.
