Royal Caribbean has announced May next year as the date for its debut of ‘Perfect Day at CocoCay’, an island resort in the Bahamas created exclusively for its guests.

In a USD$200 million transformation, the island will blend both thrilling and relaxing experiences to cater to all aspects of a family holiday in the Caribbean.

An onsite Water Park will feature: two water towers with 13 slides (the most slides found in any water park in the Caribbean); the Caribbean’s largest wave pool; a 135-foot-tall ‘Daredevil’s Peak’ waterslide; and a kid-friendly obstacle course pool.

A 1,600ft. zip line at up to 50ft. in height will also crisscross the island and a helium balloon, named 'Up, Up and Away', will float up to 450ft. above the ground providing one of the highest vantage points in The Bahamas.

Alternatively, those looking to take it easy can relax with a cocktail around the Oasis Lagoon, the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool complete with a swim-up bar and in-pool loungers, or enjoy the exclusivity of the Coco Beach Club, which will offer an upscale island experience and private overwater cabanas.

Two beaches have also been specially designed: Chill Island with plentiful cabanas and daybeds for relaxation; and the activity-packed South Beach with volleyball, beachside basketball, soccer, paddle boarding, glass-bottom kayaking and water zorbing.
