A Perfect Day At Coco Cay

I love listening to a client chatter enthusiastically about their last Caribbean cruise! Would it surprise you if I told you that most of these cruisers share the same favorite port of call? Young or old, male or female, those traveling with kids and those without, all say their day spent on the cruise line’s private island was the highlight of their vacation! I must agree! Step off your ship on to pristine beaches, fine, white sand, crystal clear blue waters perfect for swimming and snorkeling, colorful frothy umbrella drinks…I can go on and on! And these days the cruise lines are sparing no expense to make their private island the oasis you never want to leave!

In one of the company’s most ambitious projects yet, RoyalCaribbean has unveiled its new Perfect Day Island Collection, a series of unrivaled and exclusive private island destinations around the world. The first in the collection, Perfect Day at CocoCay, is a $200 million transformation of the cruise line’s existing private island in The Bahamas.

So what can Royal Caribbean do with $200 million?  How about a …

•Thrill Waterpark, featuring two water towers with 13 slides including the 135-foot-tall Daredevil’s Peak (this will be the tallest slide in North America), a large wave pool, and a kid-friendly obstacle course pool.
•Oasis Lagoon freshwater pool. The freshwater pool will have three coves— one for families with a “kid-friendly beach-style entry area”, another for adults featuring a swim-up bar, and a third with private cabanas that will be available at an extra charge.
•A 1,600-foot zip line that crisscrosses the island at up to 50 feet high ending in a splash water landing.
•A helium balloon, dubbed Up, Up and Away, floats up to 450 feet above the ground.
•Two specially designed beaches: Chill Island for the ultimate beach escape complete with cabanas and daybeds, and the action-packed South Beach with volleyball, basketball, soccer, paddle boarding, glass-bottom kayaking, and zorbing (zorbing is the sport of rolling downhill inside a giant clear plastic ball).
•Coco Beach Club featuring overwater cabanas.

There will be an extra charge for the use of many of these new inclusions, including the water park.

According to Royal Caribbean, the project has been in development for three. It will include “the installation of a pier that will be able to accommodate even the biggest of Royal Caribbean’s 24 ships”. The entire project is set to be completed by November 2019.
