You can now check just how perfect the weather is anytime you like at Royal Caribbean's private island in The Bahamas.

Royal Caribbean has added a new weather station that is publicly accessible via the Weather Underground website.

Weather Underground is a community of over 250,000 weather stations that allows just about anyone to add their sensor's outdoor readings with Weather Underground.

Royal Caribbean Chief Meteorologist James Van Fleet shared the news that the weather sensors are functional and online.

The sensors are placed at the top of Thrill Waterpark, which is the tallest waterslide in North America, and provide the public with real-time weather information from this corner of The Bahamas.

"Yessssss!!! I am thrilled to share with you that our Royal Caribbean Weather Sensors on top of the Water Slides at CocoCay are now online!", Mr. Van Fleet posted on Twitter.

You can access the weather station information anytime by visiting the station link on Weather Underground.

As excited as cruise fans are to be able to check how much better the weather is at CocoCay than at home, many also asked Mr. Van Fleet when they might be able to see just how much better the weather is.

Quite a few people asked when a webcam might be added, to which Mr. Van Fleet responded adding a webcam is on his wish list, but would be something to tackle "once we are a little farther down the road of being back in business."
