Royal Caribbean announces plan for 'Perfect Day' island attractions worldwide
POSTED 16 Mar 2018 . BY Tom Anstey
Royal Caribbean International – the cruise line brand founded in Norway – has unveiled the first details for its new “Perfect Day Island Collection”, a series of bespoke destinations under development worldwide, with each set to boast a number of distinct experiences and features.

The first to debut, Perfect Day at CocoCay in the Bahamas, will have a waterpark as its main attraction when it opens, with the development anchored by North America’s tallest waterslide.

Called Thrill Waterpark, the island’s centrepiece is made up of 13 slides – the most slides found in any waterpark in the Caribbean – as well as the region’s largest wave pool and a kid-friendly obstacle course.

The tallest slide, Daredevil’s Peak, stands at 135ft (41.1m) tall. Part of the Daredevil’s Tower structure, Daredevil’s Peak is one of seven slides, with the twin Dueling Demons drop slides, the duo of Manta Raycers, the vertical Screeching Serpent and the coiling Green Mamba also featuring. A smaller family tower will also be included, with six multi-rider slides, including The Twister, a winding tube slide for two sharing a raft; The Slingshot, a zero-gravity slide for four; and the four-lane Splash Speedway racing slides.

Not stopping at the great heights offered with the waterpark, Perfect Day at CocoCay will also offer the highest view in the Caribbean, with a fixed helium balloon taking visitors 450ft (137.2m) up in the air.

Guests of all ages will be able to enjoy the island’s Oasis Lagoon, which will be the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool. Made up of three distinct coves, the area offers a child-friendly beach swim-up bar and private cabanas. At the centre of the lagoon will be three mini swim-up islands with in-water loungers.

The island’s south beach will be full of action, with competitive sports such as volleyball, beachside basketball, soccer, paddle boarding, glass-bottom kayaking and zorbing on tap. A 1,600ft (487m) zipline is also planned, featuring the only splash water landing in the region.

“At Royal Caribbean, it’s not just about the hardware. Our destinations are an equally important part of the cruise vacation,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.

“When you name a place Perfect Day, you’re making a big, bold claim, but it’s one we’re going to deliver on. Once Perfect Day at CocoCay is complete, it will be unlike anything else in the world.”

Royal Caribbean has a host of Perfect Day destinations lined up, with islands locations under development in Asia, Australia and the Caribbean. CocoCay will be rolled out in phases starting this September, when the island’s pier is completed. The majority of the attractions will be ready for Q1 2019, with the full experience ready by the end of next year.
