With cruises sailing again, changes are happening at Perfect Day at CocoCay.
While visiting Royal Caribbean's private island on a Mariner of the Seas sailing this past weekend, I took a look around some of the most recent changes happening on the island.
Hideaway Beach progress
As you may or may not know, Royal Caribbean is expanding Perfect Day at CocoCay with a new area called "Hideaway Beach".
There are no details yet as to what this area will offer, but here is a look at where the new venue will be located.
These photos were taken from the family tower in Thrill Waterpark, as well as from the cruise ship.
Royal Caribbean recently sent guests an email survey with ideas for what Hideaway Beach could offer.
South Beach reopened
This weekend saw Royal Caribbean re-open South Beach.
Since cruises restarted, South Beach had been closed since ship capacity was so low that there was no need to open up South Beach.
However, Freedom of the Seas and Allure of the Seas were in Perfect Day at CocoCay this past Saturday, bringing around 7,000 guests in total to the island. As a result, South Beach was opened up again for passengers.
South Beach has two bars, Coconut Willie's Bar and South Beach Bar.
There are also cabanas for rent at South Beach.
Not only did Royal Caribbean re-open South Beach, they moved the floating bar back to South Beach. It was previously located at Breezy Bay at Chill Island, but that was a temporary location while South Beach was closed.
