Royal Caribbean is in the midst of a $200 million transformation project at its CocoCay private island destination in the Bahamas.
The project will rebrand CocoCay as “Perfect Day at CocoCay,” part of the company’s new “Perfect Day Island Collection.”
The changes in the Bahamas will include a new 13-slide Thrill Waterpark; the 135-foot Daredevil’s Peak, the tallest waterslide in North America; the Oasis Lagoon, the largest freshwater pool in the region and a 1,600-foot zip line complete with a water landing.
That’s along with two specially designed beaches, Chill Island and South Beach, along with a helium balloon ride called Up, Up and Away.
The centerpiece of the project will be the new Coco Beach Club, complete with the Bahamas’ first overwater cabanas.
“It’s true that our ships are technological and engineering marvels in their own right and offer a multitude of unexpected experiences; but our destinations are an equally important part of the cruise vacation,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “We are introducing the Perfect Day Island Collection to deliver the most memorable vacation for adventure seekers on land and on board our ships. Once completed Perfect Day at CocoCay will be the ultimate family destination in the Caribbean.”
