This is not just a vacation days spent, but bragging rights earned. What if you can swim in the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool or score a bird’s-eye view while drifting along in a helium balloon? Get ready for gallons of adventure in the heart of Royal Caribbean’s private island in the Bahamas, Perfect Day at CocoCay is now open.
A visit to the waterpark, Oasis Lagoon, is home to North America’s tallest waterslide, Daredevil’s Peak, a 135-foot plunge. And that’s just one of 13 slides across two towers. At Daredevil’s Tower, you can race a friend down the twin Dueling Demons. Plummet down the near-vertical Screeching Serpent. And if you dare, brave the coils of the twisting turning Green Mamba slide. Try the Slingshot, four can share a raft and a zero-gravity moment before freefalling. And no visit will be complete without a dip in the largest wave pool in the Caribbean.
A Perfect Day at CocoCay is Royal Caribbean Cruise Line’s $200 million dollar Bahamas private island transformation includes a cruise dock, so passengers will no longer have to tender ashore. There are a lot of complimentary activities like Captain Jack’s Galleon, an interactive shipwreck complete with slides and water cannons. And the biggest-ever Splashaway Bay, the aqua park for little explorers with gallons of water fun, fountains, sprinklers, geysers and water cannons, plus five slides. A Perfect Day at CocoCay is more than slides and rides. The beach area makes the island the ultimate sun soaking escape. Chill Island maxes out the relaxation while Coco Beach Club is the go-to spot for those who like to get their game on.
But you don’t have to get wet to enjoy the fun. Take things up a notch on a Zip Line with only water landing in the Bahamas. Or go up to 450 feet above land and sea onboard the Up, Up and Away Helium Balloon that gives “view from the top” a whole new meaning. It is the highest vantage point in the Bahamas.
There is volleyball beachside, basketball, paddle boarding, and kayaking. And with Snack Shacks throughout the island you can refuel over burgers, sandwiches, and salads. Then to quench your thirst, wade on over to the floating bar just offshore if you will.
Coming in December 2019, the Beach Club for adults, with the Bahamas first Over the Water Cabanas, which include premium amenities, a tranquil infinity pool and an upscale Mediterranean restaurant.
At Perfect Day at CocoCay you will discover endless ways to fill your day with one of kind experiences designed to conquer more unknowns and cultivate more lasting memories at every turn. It is more than a Caribbean Vacation, it is like having two vacations in one, a Royal Caribbean Cruise and a Perfect Day at CocoCay. From under $400 per person plus taxes, fees and port expenses, you can experience three-, four- and
seven-night Royal Caribbean vacations.
