Royal Caribbean International has unveiled plans to launch a series of exclusive private island destinations across the world.
Perfect Day at CocoCay, the first destination in the collection to be announced, is a $200 million transformation of the cruise line’s existing private island in the Bahamas.
Royal Caribbean ships departing from New York, Maryland and Florida will all call at CocoCay where passengers can either enjoy a host of activities or relax.
The cruise line said additional Perfect Day Island Collection destinations in Asia, Australia and the Caribbean would be announced at a later date.
Perfect Day at CocoCay, launching in 2019, will feature a 13-slide waterpark; the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool, Oasis Lagoon; a 1,600-foot zip line and a helium balloon which floats up to 450 feet above the ground.
Royal Caribbean passengers will also be able to use two beaches, called Chill Island and South Beach.
Cabanas constructed over water will be on offer at the exclusive Coco Beach Club, set to launch in November 2019.
Michael Bayley, Royal Caribbean’s president and chief executive, said: “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.”
Royal Caribbean also announced it was committing $900m to its Royal Amplified programme.
The fleet modernisation project will enhance passenger experience by introducing a range of new features and experiences.
Ten ships over the next four years will be modernised as part of the programme.
