Royal Caribbean in Talks to Build a Pier at CocoCay

Royal Caribbean is in talks to build a pier at CocoCay, their private island in the Bahamas, SeaTrade Cruise News is reporting.

The cost of building a pier at CoCoCay would cost $47 million and it would allow the largest ships in Royal Caribbean’s fleet and the largest in the world, the Oasis class, to visit the island.  The news was announced during the Bahamian Prime Minister’s latest budget communication.

Currently, ships have to tender to CocoCay which keeps the largest cruise ships in Royal Caribbean’s fleet from visiting the island. A pier would not only allow any of cruise line’s ships to visit, but would also make for less missed stops due to weather.  The development timeline for the pier is expected to take 12 months. Royal Caribbean told SeaTrade Cruise News that the development of CocoCay is a priority for the cruise line.

CocoCay, also known as Little Stirrup Cay, is one of the Berry Islands in the Bahamas and is located next to Norwegian’s private island, Great Stirrup Cay.  Royal Caribbean took over the lease of Little Stirrup Cay when they acquired Admiral Cruises and renamed the island CocoCay.
