Royal Caribbean's New Private Island Cruise Will Have Balloon Rides and a 135-foot Water Slide
Royal Caribbean puts lots of effort into giving its guests the perfect vacation aboard its ships, but now they're focusing on creating a one-of-a-kind experience on land: In 2019, guests will be able to visit the company’s newly transformed private island in CocoCay, Bahamas.
CocoCay will be the first private island in Royal Caribbean’s “Perfect Day Island Collection,” which will offer private island destinations around the world to Royal Caribbean cruisers. The company plans to also add its private islands in Labadee, Haiti and ports of call in Asia and Australia to the program at later dates, TravelPulse reported.
At CocoCay, guests can enjoy several exclusive attractions like a huge water park featuring a 135-foot water slide, freshwater pools, swim-up bars, lounges, zip lines, helium balloon rides, and other beach activities.
Cruises to CocoCay will depart from New York, Maryland, and Florida. The launch will happen in phases, starting in September, but most cruises are scheduled for spring 2019.
“At Royal Caribbean, it’s not just about the hardware...Our destinations are an equally important part of the cruise vacation,” Michael Bayley, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International, said in a statement. “We are introducing Perfect Day Island Collection to ensure that we deliver the most memorable vacation for adventure seekers on land, as well as on board our ships.”
