I LOVE it and can not wait to go back.   I travelled with several others in a very large group, and we are discussing going together again with a main requirement being visiting Coco Cay.  It truly was our perfect

I have yet to be to  Perfect Day at CocoCay but this pic is my desktop background.  I have high hopes of the time we get to spend on the island.  I invite others who have been there to share their favorite memories there here.  I hope this doesn't sound too corny.

Watching this thread because I have honestly been avoiding looking at any cruises that stop there because I don't get the appeal.

Not bashing it. Just never been and wasn't sure what the big deal was about it.

Since so many itineraries seem to stop there, it would open up a lot of options for me if I learn more about it from seeing why folks love it.

There is a 2 day Indy sailing in May that goes to Perfect Day.  I am very tempted to book it so my kids can check it out (I felt SO guilty going there without them!).  This is the only way my older daughter could see it for 2 years due to nursing school beginning next month.

Is it possible to purchase a water park admission same day? Some trepidation on my teens part as the Island is so big with so much to do. We have a cabana at the Oasis (we were lucky & purchased before the huge price increase) and really wanted to settle in and see if this is something she would participate in. The pictures are beautiful, looking forward to this "Perfect Day"

Corny? NO WAY, pure joy is what I feel when reading this blog's posts!! Thanks everyone.

It was a CocoLoco.   It’s the drink of the day on the island, and is “Royal’s Drink”.  Word is it’s the same as a Labadoozy, but I haven’t been to Labadee soo can’t confirm.  (Next summer!)

Yes, you can!   (Purchase same day on the island).  We had a cabana at Oasis Lagoon, too.

I could go on and on about what I loved and why I loved it, and post all kinds of pics, but I don’t want to drive people crazy.   But I will say this, there is a relaxation option for every style.  There are activities for every level.   I love that I don’t have to spend any additional money for food or drink.  It is immaculate.  There is no one begging for you to buy their goods, use their taxi, take their tour, etc.  And frankly, it’s just beautiful.    

 

If you like more details or photos, let me know.

Going back in October. We are sure it will still be great, but we'll surely miss the bungalow we had on South Beach in May.

How far was the Oasis Lagoon pool from South Beach? Close enough to walk over every now and then?

Great idea!  I have a bulletin board on the wall by my desk with little pics of our upcoming vacation on Oasis to Cococay...so you are in good company   :)

Yes, a very nice 5-10 minute walk along the beach. Since South Beach is closed for construction we'll have to split between Chill Island and the pool. The pool is so huge, it's actually not terribly far from anything. Picture doesn't do it justice.

Tons of appeal if you enjoy beach or pool days. If not, this isn’t going to be a great stop for you. On the other hand, if you do enjoy these things, Coco Cay is one of the best stops offered by RC.

That looks like a great spot for some relaxation.  We have a cabana booked on South Beach when we make it there.  Im wondering if these will be what we get or if they are doing something different?

It was terrific. We were there on Symphony during the second week that Perfect Day was open. There were 6464 passengers aboard and they said that 5800 got off. And with all those people, this is how South Beach looked at about 11AM. Relaxation at it's best! At that time in our area were 15 beach beds and 20 bungalows (we paid $219 for the bungalow and that included food delivery, water and floating beach mats). Next to us were the beach loungers. I actually don't know where the cabanas were.

While I was there before it was labeled perfect day, we had a cabana on what is now called Chill Island. It was a great way to spend the day, and my daughter was living her best life chasing away the seagulls for all the other guests. Discovering all of the hermit crabs in the rock wall was also a highlight for my two kids.

On an exciting note, we will be sailing on Navigator on September 23rd with a stop here, and we again have a Chill Island Cabana, and we cant wait to explore and see all of the other improvements!

That is what we are wanting.  I told my wife that there are other cabana options available, but she told me she would prefer to be on the beach.  This looks heavenly!
