Royal Caribbean officially opened its revamped private island in the Bahamas, Perfect Day at CocoCay.

The newly opened destination welcomes guests following a $250 million transformation of the cruise line's existing private destination in The Bahamas.

Guests sailing on Navigator of the Seas were welcomed to Perfect Day at CocoCay, where a number of new venues, activities and offerings were officially open for guest use.

While Royal Caribbean opened some areas of Perfect Day in the weeks leading up to this grand opening, today was the first day guests had the opportunity to try Thrill Waterpark.

At Thrill Waterpark, you can find Daredevil’s Tower, where guests can try a number ofsingle-rider waterslides of various heights, including the 135-foot-tall Daredevil’s Peak – the tallest waterslide in North America.

Additional highlights are the twin Dueling Demon drop slides, launching riders from a vertical position; the Manta Raycers, where friends can race down twin open flume slides; the high-speed, fully vertical Screeching Serpent; and the coiling Green Mamba, a massive aqua tube slide.

There is also lots for kids of all ages to enjoy. From three dry slides and 16 water cannons, to rope features and a splash pad, Captain Jill’s Galleon is an interactive play structure loaded with swashbuckling thrills. There's even Sprayaway Geyser, which shoots water 80 feet up into the air!

Of course, Perfect Day at CocoCay features the beautiful beaches that people have flocked to The Bahamas for years. Chill Island has beach favorites here, including jet skiing excursions as well as plentiful cabanas and daybeds for relaxation under the shade. 

The island features a 1,600-foot-long zip-line course that crisscrosses Perfect Day at CocoCay.

Perfect Day features the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool, Oasis Lagoon, which has three distinct coves. Children can get in on the fun, too, with the kid-friendly zero-entry zone.

Skipper’s Grill is a waterfront restaurant that mixes the best views with an array of complimentary menu items,  like salads, sandwiches, tacos and burgers. 

The first—and only—Splashaway Bay ashore features two drench buckets, five slides (two tubes and three racer slides), as well as numerous fountains, water cannons, sprinklers and geysers. There is also an obstacle course featuring cannons and rope bridge.
