    Ep. 432 - In Defense of the New: Lookout Cay Preview First Impressions

    Brian shares his first impressions of Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point after his three-night preview sailing aboard the Disney Magic from Fort Lauderdale. Brian was an invited guest of Disney Cruise Line on this sailing, but remained committed to giving his balanced and thoughtful feedback on the island. Participating in the preview cruise afforded Brian access to Disney PR reps for interviews which he has included portions of in this episode. We'll give a fuller review, as well as Sam and Nathan's full review, after we have a chance to return to Lookout Cay later this week, three times in fact. But, for now, here are some first impressions of DCL's newest private island destination in the Bahamas.

OCD - Obsessive Cruise Disorder

This show is my guilty pleasure - I love listening to it when I am having a slow day at work or out walking around. The hosts are funny, informative, and my favorite part is they have regular people come on their show, as well as super-cruisers and cruising experts, to talk about their various trips, likes, loves, (sometimes hates) and overall interest in DCL and cruising in general. There are so many perspectives that are aired on the show that you really feel you get a really solid, comprehensive, view of what DCL has to offer and you can hear the genuine joy from the hosts and their guests from their experiences - but equally, their disappointments when things haven’t gone as well as they could. I think their honest and frank conversations with guests of all sorts lend them to being such a joy to listen to and help me accept my OCD. 😂

Honest reviews and helpful tips

I’ve learned so much from this podcast.
Brian’s most recent review of lookout cay was one of the best reviews I’ve heard. The dcl duo is always able to hi-light things you can look forward to while helping you keep realistic expectations.

The go to Disney Cruise podcast

Amazing podcast! When we booked our first cruise back in January 2023 for March 2024 I was searching for anything and everything on Disney cruise line. I tried listening to a few different DCL podcasts but none kept my attention quite like DCL duo! The hosts and the guests are entertaining and informative. This podcast is the best way to plan and get you excited for your upcoming cruise.
