Royal Caribbean invests 223 million in CocoCay, its private island

It will be included as a stopover in the eleven cruises of the shipping company and will be the first of a series of private destinations

Royal Caribbean has inaugurated this weekend ‘Perfect Day at CocoCay’, the first island of its new collection of private destinations located in the Bahamas, with an investment of 250 million dollars (223 million euros), which the shipping company defines as «a vacation experience», combining fun and relaxation.

The island has the tallest water slide in North America with more than 40 meters, called ‘Daredevil’s Peak’, the largest wave pool in the Caribbean, six racing slides and a helium balloon that reaches 130 meters in height, which stand out among the attractions of the ‘Thrill Waterpark’ water park.

Another of the silver zones of the island is Chille Island where activities such as ‘snorkel’ and ‘jet sky’ are offered, as well as gastronomic offer. For the little ones there is a pirate ship, Captain’s Jack’s Galleon, or the water park, Splashaway Bay. In addition, it has a zip line of almost 500 meters in length that runs through the island and for the most athletes the silver of South Beach, with all kinds of facilities.

For the exclusive use of Royal Caribbean customers, the private enclave can be accessed by traveling from Miami and other ports in Florida or the northwest on any of the eleven ships of the shipping company that will include a stopover on the island in their itineraries, the shipping company has reported.
