Royal Caribbean is brimming with excitement over the highly anticipated completion of its private island transformation. Introducing Perfect Day at CocoCay, the first in the new Perfect Day Island Collection. The exclusive island in the Bahamas has been completely revamped with a $250 million extreme makeover covering 125 acres.
Your Perfect Day at CocoCay now includes an exhilarating collection of brand new thrills—think helium balloon adventures and the tallest waterslide in North America—and a relaxing assortment of new ways to chill, like the largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean.
Michael Bayley, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International explained how proud the cruise line is to bring its 50-year legacy of innovation ashore, revolutionizing private destinations in the vacation industry. “It is exciting to see what we have dreamed up finally come to life; our guests truly are in for an experience unlike any other,” he said.

Thirteen waterslides including the tallest in North America, a family water adventure where slides are in full supply, the largest wave pool in the Caribbean, and an interactive obstacle-course pool.
Up, Up, and Away
Look high in the sky for Perfect Day at CocoCay’s signature attraction: a tethered helium balloon that takes riders 450 feet above the island for spectacular Bahamian views.
At 1,600 feet long, it races riders over and across the island for a harbor-side landing.
The largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean comes complete with an underwater sound system, three separate coves, swim-up bar, in-water loungers, cabanas, and a kid-friendly beach entry.
The largest aqua park at sea is crafted for kid cruisers with fountains, sprinklers, drench buckets, and waterslides.
Cabanas, daybeds, and roaming beach bartenders? Yes, please. This is also where to find snorkeling and jet skis.
For the active beach enthusiast, South Beach serves up volleyball, beachside basketball, soccer, and paddle boarding, along with oceanside loungers and cabanas.
Coco Beach Club
An upscale way to have the Perfect Day at CocoCay is, of course, in the first overwater cabanas in the Bahamas. This new level of laid-back luxury includes a private ocean slide, overwater hammock, shower, and attendant. Coco Beach Club also features a beachfront infinity pool.
Perfect Day at CocoCay takes care of the taste buds with venues like Captain Jack’s, Skipper’s Grill, Chill Grill, and the Snack Shack.
And there’s no shortage of beachside memory-making at Labadee, either. The 270-acre peninsula located on the northern coast of Haiti is loaded with action-packed activities, while pristine beaches, coral reefs, and forested mountains surround the private getaway.
Ships dock directly at Royal Caribbean’s state-of-the-art pier, built for the world’s largest cruise ships. Guests pull up right to the destination, where it’s only a few steps to the sandy shores. Get ready, thrill seekers, for the adventure to begin. Adrenaline junkies get a fix on Dragon’s Breath Flight Line. It flies 500 feet above water at 40 mph. Dragon’s Tail Coaster is shriek-inducing as it descends a 680-foot mountain. Dragon’s Splash Waterslide is a favorite, and Arawak Aqua Park has inflatable icebergs, trampolines, and floating see-saws. And of course, there are water sports, snorkeling, jet-skiing, parasailing, kayaking, powerboating, and more.
Out of seven island neighborhoods, Dragon’s Plaza marks the start of Labadee’s longest beach, and Columbus Cove is a beach abuzz with activity. Or, if luxury lounging is more your speed, look no further than the overwater private cabanas on Nellie’s Beach, or at the suite-guest exclusive, Barefoot Beach.
