Over the last year, Royal Caribbean has been working hard to revamp its private island in the Bahamas. Now that it is officially open to cruisers, you may be wondering how you can spend a Perfect Day at CocoCay.

Home to the Tallest and Largest

Found in CocoCay’s Thrill WaterparkSM, Daredevil’s PeakSM rises 135 feet over the island, making it the tallest water slide in North America. If you are looking for a tamer way to slide away the day, the park has twelve other water slides to choose from.

After experiencing the water slides, check out the Caribbean’s largest wave pool, also located in Thrill WaterparkSM. If you prefer, relax in one of Thrill Waterpark’sSM cabanas, which include complimentary entry for all of the slides and activities for up to six guests .


Take to the Skies

If you’re looking for some high-flying fun, you’ll find it at CocoCay in the form of a large helium balloon floating above the island. Up, Up and Away is a tethered balloon that, upon reaching a height of 450 feet, provides guests with an unforgettable view of the island.

For adrenaline seekers, the 1,600 foot zip line is among the most exciting ways to experience the island. Soaring above some of the island’s eateries and attractions, the zip line course ends with either a dry landing on the ground or a splash landing in the harbor.


Relax and Refuel

To indulge at the island’s swim-up bar, head over to Oasis LagoonSM, the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool. Nearby, Chill IslandSM features plenty of chairs and umbrellas to relax on the sand and gaze out over the beauty of the Caribbean. Or, head over to relax on Harbor Beach overlooking CocoCay’s interior harbor.

Several of the dining options on the island are complimentary, including Chill Grill. This beachside restaurant is home to BBQ, fresh salads, and self-serve beer. Relax with live music at Captain Jack’sSM and enjoy their house specialty: chicken wings dipped in signature sauces such as mango-habanero and Caribbean jerk. After that, pop over to Skipper’s Grill, the go-to spot for tropical fruit or a sweet treat. As a bonus, if you purchase a beverage or Wi-Fi package for your sailing, both can be enjoyed at Perfect Day at CocoCay.


More to Come!

Cruisers can experience all of these incredible activities right now, but there’s still more to come. Slated to open in December of 2019, CocoCay’s South Beach will be one more reason to book a sailing for the holiday season. South Beach will feature the CoCo Beach ClubSM and the Bahamas’ first over-the-water cabanas to relax the day away.
