Three months ago, Royal Caribbean unveiled a massive overhaul to their private island in the Bahamas, CocoCay. The cruise line is adding massive upgrades that include a new waterpark, the tallest waterslide in the Caribbean, and other one of a kind thrills in what Royal Caribbean is calling “The Perfect Day”.
While many of the new features will be complimentary, others will come with an additional charge. Those who are booked on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship that stops in CocoCay from May 2019 and beyond, can now begin to reserve shore excursions for these new attractions.
CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s private island in the Bahamas, will soon have the largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean, the tallest waterslide in North America, an exclusive Coco Beach Club, and a tethered helium balloon that will offer views 450 feet above the island. Also, a pier is being built so cruise ships will no longer need to take tenders to the island.
