Couples’ Paradise: Why every day’s a Perfect Day at CocoCay

Castaway on Royal Caribbean’s private island in the Bahamas and you’ll discover a couple’s fantasy isle.

What’s your idea of a perfect day on vacation? Perhaps it’s lying on a talcum powder beach, holding hands with your loved one as your skin turns golden under a blazing sun, to the soothing soundtrack of the ocean waves lapping the shore.

Or maybe you’re the adventurous type and want to plunge, screaming, from the summit of the tallest waterslide in North America, rushing into the arms of your other half at the bottom, breathless with excitement, and begging to go on it again?

Whether it’s your honeymoon or just precious time away together, the ideal beach getaway has places to relax and plenty of action-packed activities at Perfect Day at CocoCay.

Nestled in a chain of tropical isles near the Bahamas, is Royal Caribbean’s private island where every day is a Perfect Day. Exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests, this is the ultimate playground for fun and unwinding in the sun.

Catch a solar-powered-tram to see the sights around the island then head to Chill Island. After a dip in the ocean, swim up to the floating Tiki bar and climb the short ladder to order a drink.

Why not treat yourselves to a Floating Cabana where you can relax in overwater hammocks and rush down private slides into the crystal-clear ocean below? You can rent some snorkel gear for a glimpse at life under the sea. As well as brightly colored fish, and stingrays, keep an eye out for sea turtles, too.

When it’s time for some refreshment head to Oasis Lagoon – a freshwater pool the size of a football pitch – for a signature Coco Loco frozen cocktail made with rum. Grab an in-water lounger so you can sip while catching rays or dive underwater where you can still hear the music.

Had enough chills and eager for some thrills? Nothing will beat plummeting 41-metres down the record-breaking slide, Daredevil’s Peak at speeds of up to 29km per hour. For the bravest of couples, there are ‘twin slide’ options which begins when the floor drops away beneath you!

Still got a head for heights? You can soar over the island on a thrilling 1,600ft ride on Zip Line, go Up, Up and Away in a helium balloon for incredible views over the island. Or why not make a splash at Thrill Waterpark, which has 13 water slides and the Caribbean’s biggest ever wave pool that unleashes its power once every hour?

After all that activity head to Chill Grill for cold beer, BBQ chicken straight off the grill and the laid-back vibes the Bahamas is known for.

The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. For live music, head to Captain Jack’s which has rope swing seats and a live guitarist before heading back to your ship.

Visit on a short sailing or a selection of longer Caribbean cruise from Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Port Canaveral and Cape Liberty that also takes in some of the best destinations the Caribbean has to offer including the Bahamas, Jamaica, Haiti, St Maarten and St Thomas.

Whether it’s a thrill-filled getaway or a sun-soaked romantic retreat you’re looking for as a couple, there’s nothing better than casting away to Perfect Day at CocoCay where you’ll discover your very own fantasy island.
