VIDEO: Royal Caribbean's private island in the Bahamas now open

Royal Caribbean's exclusive private island, Coco Cay, is officially open.

The $250 million transformation of the line’s private island in The Bahamas offers guests a series of incredible thrills and one-of-a-kind relaxation spots. From plunging down the tallest waterslide in North America and traveling up to 450 feet in the air in the Up, Up and Away helium balloon, to conquering the Caribbean’s largest wave pool, thrill seekers can find plenty of ways to put their courage to the test. 

For those looking to relax, Perfect Day features the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool, Oasis Lagoon; and pristine, white sand beaches with crystal-clear tropical water.

Perfect Day at CocoCay is exclusive to guests of Royal Caribbean. From ports in Florida and the Northeast, vacationers can visit the private island destination by sailing on 11 of the global cruise line’s innovative and adventure-packed ships.

Thrill Waterpark

Thrill Waterpark is composed of two towers with 13 waterslides – as well as the Caribbean’s largest wave pool and the Adventure Pool with a family-friendly obstacle course. Key features include:

  • Daredevil’s Tower – Guests can push their limits on seven exhilarating single-rider waterslides of various heights, including the 135-foot-tall Daredevil’s Peak– the tallest waterslide in North America. Additional highlights are the twin Dueling Demon drop slides, launching riders from a vertical position; the Manta Raycers, where friends can race down twin open flume slides; the high-speed, fully vertical Screeching Serpent; and the coiling Green Mamba, a massive aqua tube slide.
  • Splash Summit – Adventurous families will share the thrill with six multi-rider slides, including The Slingshot, a zero-gravity slide for four; The Twister, a winding tube slide for two on a tandem raft; and the four-lane Splash Speedway racing slides.
  • Wave Pool – Vacationers can ride the tide at the largest wave pool in the Caribbean, where a timer on the back wall counts down to the start of big waves.
  • Adventure Pool – This interactive obstacle course on water features floating lily pads, a rock-climbing wall and two swing ropes for guests to bounce, climb and swing to their heart’s content.

Other great experiences

Up, Up, and Away: a colorful helium balloon securely tethered to the ground by cable. The signature attraction floats up to 450 feet above Perfect Day at CocoCay, allowing guests to take in the island from the highest vantage point in The Bahamas.

Oasis Lagoon: the largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean, complete with an expansive swim-up bar or three swim-up islands.

Splashaway Bay: Kids aqua park with two massive drench buckets and five waterslides, including three racers.

There's also a 1,600-foot-long zip-line course that crisscrosses the island, beginning near the arrivals plaza and ending across the harbor. Plenty of dining options, like the Chill Grill, the Snack Shack, Captain Jack's or Skipper's Grill.
