As part of a multibillion-dollar investment by Royal Caribbean International to provide its guests with customisable holiday adventures, the cruise company has unveiled one its most ambitious projects to date in the shape of a series of exclusive private island destinations around the world.

Called the Perfect Day Island Collection, the first of these will debut for 2019 in a US$200million transformation of the cruise line’s existing private island in The Bahamas to create Perfect Day at CocoCay.

Michael Bayley, president and CEO of the company, said: “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 holiday. We are introducing the Perfect Day Island Collection to deliver the most memorable holiday for adventure seekers on land and onboard our ships. Once completed Perfect Day at CocoCay will be the ultimate family destination in the Caribbean.”

Highlights will include a Thrill Waterpark, featuring two water towers with 13 slides – the most slides found in any waterpark in the Caribbean – and the 135ft. tall Daredevil’s Peak, the tallest waterslide in North America. The waterpark will also feature the Caribbean’s largest wave pool and a kid-friendly obstacle course pool.

It will further feature Oasis Lagoon, the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool with a swim-up bar and in-pool loungers, a 1,600ft. zip line criss-crossing the island, a helium balloon dubbed ‘Up, Up and Away’ which will float up to 45 ft. above the ground providing for the highest vantage point in The Bahamas and two specially designed beaches – Chill Island for relaxation and the action-packed South Beach with volleyball, beachside basketball, soccer, paddle boarding, glass-bottom kayaking and zorbing in an inflatable zorb ball.

Royal Caribbean ships departing from New York, Maryland and Florida will call at Perfect Day at CocoCay. The island transformation will roll out in phases beginning from this September with the completion of a new pier, and by spring 2019 the majority of the island’s experiences will be open. Coco Beach Club, the final phase, is set to open November 2019. Additional Perfect Day Island Collection destinations in Asia, Australia and the Caribbean will be announced at a later date.
