Royal Caribbean Cruise Line’s New Private Island Now Open

Royal Caribbean Cruise Line’s highly anticipated Perfect Day at CocoCay is now open!  It is unlike any private island the world has ever seen and the first in the cruise line’s new Perfect Day Island Collection of next-level private destinations around the world.  The $250 transformation features a combination of first-of-their-kind thrills and one-of-a-kind ways to chill.  Guests have the opportunity to create their very own perfect beach day.

“Royal Caribbean is the proven leader when it comes to pushing the envelope in cruise ship design and the experiences offered at sea,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “With Perfect Day at CocoCay, we are so proud to bring our 50-year legacy of innovation ashore to transform an incredible island that now completely revolutionizes private destinations in the vacation industry. It is exciting to see what we have dreamed up finally come to life; our guests truly are in for an experience unlike any other.”

The new Perfect Day at CocoCay is exclusive to guests of Royal Caribbean Cruise Line.  It can be visited via itineraries departing from Florida and the Northeast on 11 of the cruise line’s innovative and adventure packed ships.

The heart of Perfect Day at CocoCay is its Thrill Waterpark which calls the most daring adrenaline-seeking guests to its two towers complete with 13 waterslides.  It also includes the Caribbean’s largest wave pool as well as the Adventure Pool featuring a family friendly obstacle course.  The key features of the Thrill Waterpark include:

Daredevil’s Tower – Guests can push their limits on seven exhilarating single-rider waterslides of various heights, including the 135-foot-tall Daredevil’s Peak– the tallest waterslide in North America. Additional highlights are the twin Dueling Demon drop slides, launching riders from a vertical position; the Manta Raycers, where friends can race down twin open flume slides; the high-speed, fully vertical Screeching Serpent; and the coiling Green Mamba, a massive aqua tube slide.

Splash Summit – Adventurous families will share the thrill with six multi-rider slides, including The Slingshot, a zero-gravity slide for four; The Twister, a winding tube slide for two on a tandem raft; and the four-lane Splash Speedway racing slides.

Wave Pool – Vacationers can ride the tide at the largest wave pool in the Caribbean, where a timer on the back wall counts down to the start of big waves.

Adventure Pool – This interactive obstacle course on water features floating lily pads, a rock-climbing wall and two swing ropes for guests to bounce, climb and swing to their heart’s content.

The Perfect Day at CocoCay also features the following:

Up, Up and Away – Everyone scores a view unlike any other from a colorful helium balloon securely tethered to the ground by cable. The signature attraction floats up to 450 feet above Perfect Day at CocoCay, allowing guests to take in the island from the highest vantage point in The Bahamas and capture the ultimate selfie with the private island and the pristine blue waters of The Bahamas as their backdrop.

Oasis Lagoon (the largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean) – Whether looking to spend time with family, share a few cocktails with friends or simply sit back under the tropical sun. Sunbathers can make their way through three distinct coves, each with a vibe of their own, and swim to the beat of the underwater sound system. Families with small children can splash through water features and jump right into the excitement at the kid-friendly beach entry. On the south side of Oasis Lagoon, pool-goers can sip a frosty Coco Loco at the expansive swim-up bar, catch some sunrays on one of three swim-up islands with in-water loungers, or treat themselves to total relaxation in a private cabana, complete with its own cabana attendant.

Perfect Day at CocoCay features multiple dining options.  Captain Jack’s is the island hangout and meet-up spot where guests can grab a drink at the rowboat bar, settle into a rope swing seat or snack on the house specialty – chicken wings and fries dipped in signature sauces like mango-habanero and Caribbean jerk. Live jams and harborside views put vacationers in an island state of mind in no time. Skipper’s Grill features complimentary lunchtime favorites like salads, sandwiches, tacos, burgers, fresh fruit and desserts.

Little ones also have the chance to experience their very own Perfect Day!  Captain Jill’s Galleon is an interactive play structure that includes three dry slides, 16 water cannons, rope features, and a splash pad.

Splashaway Bay is hands down the coolest aqua park at sea! The adventures that can be had here are bigger than ever with more fountains, sprinklers, and geysers.  There are also two massive drench buckets and five waterslides, including three racers.  This complimentary attraction is located along the harbor between Captain Jack’s and Skipper’s Grill and offers a multitude of seating and tables for families.

There is even a 1,600-foot-long zip-line course that crisscrosses the island!

Chill Island is the perfect island escape that travelers normally dream about and now it can be experienced in real life!  The largest dining venue on the island, Chill Grill, is located here and serves beachside dining at shaded picnic tables on the sand.  Beach day favorites can also be found here including, snorkeling, jet-skiing excursions as well as cabanas and daybeds under the shade.  Dreams are made complete here with beach bars that include roaming bartenders!

South Beach is where the competition heats up!  It features volleyball, beachside basketball, soccer, and paddle boarding.  The Snack Shack can be visited here to grab a quick snack or guests can wade out to the floating bar to cool off and grab a drink.  There are also beachfront cabanas that guests can lounge in here.

Believe it or not, there is even more that is set to open!  The Coco Beach Club is scheduled to open in December.  Guests will experience an upscale take on the island’s authentic Caribbean vibes.  Included at the Coco Beach Club are:

  • Overwater Cabanas The first overwater cabanas in The Bahamas will offer discerning guests a new level of laidback luxury. Each with its own slide into the ocean, overwater hammock, shower, and dedicated attendant, the exclusive cabanas will have everything vacationers would want for a day of complete indulgence.
  • Infinity Pool– Spanning an expansive 2,600-plus feet, this beachfront infinity pool is at the center of Zen with in-water loungers.
  • Club and Deck Area– Beachside cabanas and daybeds will provide a private slice of paradise. Elsewhere, guests can enjoy an exclusive dining venue that serves up freshly made Mediterranean fare with a side of ocean views.

  1. I’m not one for water slides, but this looks really awesome! The island is huge & has a huge variety of things to do that varies on thrill level! What’s nice is that it’s not open to the general public–you have to be on the Caribbean cruise line to go there–so crowd levels will be at a minimum. Whether you want to go down water slides, go zip lining, see the island from a hot air balloon, go in the wave pool, go swimming, or even relax on the sand, there is something for everyone! #DisneyVacayGiveaway

  2. This looks pretty fun! As much as an adrenaline junkie as I am, I think I’ll pass on that huge slide. Not a fan of water slides, but I’m in for everything else! #DisneyVacayGiveaway
