Castaway Club Reception

What exactly is the CC reception and where/when does it take place? We are going on our 2nd Disney cruise next week? Will we be eligible to attend the reception. Thanks for any information

The Castaway Club reception is for Gold and Platinum Castaway members. It's usually the first sea day. Typically, they serve little appetizers and the Cruise Director and Captain give a little "it's great that you all have cruised so much with us" talk. And they hand out Mickey head Rice Krispie treats.

Our last ones there was a video talking about all the "new" itineraries.

So it's not for a person on their 2nd (or 3rd, 4th, or even 5th) cruise. Sad for OP and me.

You seriously aren't missing out on anything special. We actually stopped going after they switched to the new format. Now on our 2nd cruise in 2004 the CC reception was FANTASTIC! It was held in RNBD with shrimp cocktail, tons of food, & free drinks.

Agreed, you really aren't missing much. Last year on the Wonder they didn't even have Rice Krispy treats.

Two weeks later we attended a similar reception on an RCCL cruise. They had live entertainment, the appetizers and desserts were plentiful, with a lot of variety, and tasted better than food we'd had for Palo brunch. DH and I decided we don't need to attend any more DCL receptions.

I just completed my 10th DCL cruise. I've been to the CC reception only once. It's really no big deal. I don't feel the need to attend.
