Starting next year, Royal Caribbean will be offering cruise goers the “perfect day” at the line's own private island, CocoCay, in the Bahamas. Here's what to expect if you're interested in booking.

Cruise itineraries featuring CocoCay will begin in May 2019 — right now there is plenty of availability for December 2019 and later. Cruise prices start at $256 per person for a three-night excursion, up to a nine-night cruise starting at $718 per person (for an interior room, with higher rates for ocean view and balcony rooms).

On CocoCay, the cruise line is building an elaborate water park that will be exclusive to Royal Caribbean guests. It will have 13 water slides (including one called “Daredevil's Peak” that will be 135 feet tall), freshwater pools, swim-up bars, lounges, zip lines, helium balloon rides, and more beach activities.

Admission to the water park will cost from $44 to $99 per person for the full day and $39 to $74 for a half day (kids under three are free), Travel Weekly reported. Attractions like zip lines and helium balloon rides are extra, but there will be combo pricing available. The Coco Beach Club, with an oceanfront infinity pool and waterfront dining, will cost from $54 to $99 for adults and $34 to $69 for kids.

There are also overwater cabana rentals on the island — the first in the Bahamas, according to the cruise line — which look like a Caribbean dream. Depending on the season, the cabanas are $299 to $569, access to the beach club and water park not included.
