Royal Caribbean Closes Private Island CocoCay For the Next Week

Royal Caribbean has closed CocoCay for the next week due to Hurricane Dorian.  CocoCay is the cruise line’s private island in the Bahamas.

Royal Caribbean closed the island so the 400 Bahamian locals who work on it can care for their families and secure their homes.

Royal Caribbean posted the following message regarding their decision to close CocoCay for the next week:

“We’ve been closely monitoring Tropical Storm Dorian, as it enters the Caribbean. Based on current projections of the storm’s path, we decided to close CocoCay on Wednesday, August 28th, 2019, and it will reopen on Wednesday, September 4th, 2019. Our CocoCay Team is made up of over 400 Bahamian locals on the island and it’s important that they evacuate to care for their families and secure their homes, as soon as possible. We evaluated all options, and this is the best decision, as there is no room for error when it comes to the safety and security of our guests, crew, and employees. This is our top priority.”
