Pirate Ship Lands on Disney Isle

Starting in early July, guests sailing on a Disney Cruise Line vacation will discover a 175-foot ghost ship anchored at the line's private island, Castaway Cay. The ship is the Flying Dutchman, which makes its silver screen debut on July 7 in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. The intricate film prop is unlike any other pirate ship—with ragged sails and a barnacle-encrusted bow. Disney Cruise Line guests will have a swashbuckling photoopportunity, and guests who rent boats on the island will be able to get an up-close look at the ghost ship. Disney says that while visiting Castaway Cay, guests should also be on the lookout for the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow, who may be spotted around the island; guests are urged to approach and hear his tales. Disney Cruise Line will also hold a premier for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest in the Walt Disney Theater of both the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder.
