Royal Caribbean have taken yet another innovative step by completely transforming their private island, CocoCay in the Bahamas.
Royal Caribbean will spend approximately $200 million on developing CocoCay into a magnificent beach resort exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests. The development will be rolled-out in stages, with the official grand opening due in December 2019.
The beach resort will be designed so all of Royal Caribbean's ships can stop there, including the biggest ships in the Oasis class. However, there will be a maximum capacity of around 6,500 guests visiting the resort at any one time.
Key attractions on the island will be the tallest waterslide in North America, the largest wave pool in the Caribbean, 450-foot helium balloon rides and Coco Beach - an exclusive beach resort with overwater cabanas!
