9 Reasons to visit Perfect Day at CocoCay

Updated: Sep 11, 2023

I've been to many private islands during my years of cruising. It's always fun to step off the ship knowing that you are about to embark on a one-of-a-kind experience in the middle of the ocean. Being able to have this exclusive experience with your family and friends is memory-making at its finest.

One of my favorite family-friendly islands is Perfect Day at CocoCay. This island oasis is located in the Bahamas and is exclusive to guests sailing on a Royal Caribbean Perfect Day at Coco Cay itinerary.

At Perfect Day at CocoCay, you will encounter endless ways to fill your day with one-of-a-kind experiences designed to conquer more unknowns and cultivate more lasting memories at every turn.

You are probably wondering what makes this private island different than other private islands.

I've compiled a list of the top 9 reasons why you and your family should visit Perfect Day at CocoCay on your next Royal Caribbean cruise.

1. Thrill Waterpark

Test your bravery and have some good old fashion fun with the family.

Thrill Waterpark includes the tallest waterslide in North America and the biggest wave pool in the Caribbean.

2. Cocoa Beach Club

Upgrade for your beach day at this exclusive family-friendly club.

Find your zen at the beachfront infinity pool and enjoy waterfront dining, serving up locally caught fish and dishes with a Mediterranean flair.

3. Private Cabanas

Revel in your private cabana with complimentary concierge services. Indulge in the first floating cabanas in the Bahamas, where it’s just you and the endless blue.

You can spread out across plenty of comfortable lounge seating, unwind in your overwater hammock and splash into the sea

on your own slide.

Plus, when you rent a beachside or floating cabana, you will automatically receive exclusive access to Cocoa Beach Club.

4. Zip Line

This course takes you from platform to platform soaking up views of the island that ends with a splash landing in the harbor.

Here you can snack on Caribbean favorites like mango-habanero wings or grab a Coco Loco at the rowboat bar.
