Royal Caribbean opened the first part of its major enhancement of its private island in the Bahamas, Perfect Day at CocoCay.
Mariner of the Seas docked at CocoCay today, marking the first time a Royal Caribbean ship docked and disembarked guests on the island. The pier allows ships to forgo the tendering process.
We got a chance to look around at the three major new venues open on Perfect Day at CocoCay, the Oasis Lagoon pool, Snack Shack and Chill Grill.
