RickW Posted February 27 Report Share Posted February 27 Now that I've got your attention, let me say that I love to read or view Matt's helpful comments on a wide variety of subjects. Matt's stubborn insistence on calling CocoCay CocoKey is just too much to let slide though. Now Matt, I realize that the islanders in the Caribbean refer to those small islands as Keys, just like we call Key West, even though it's always spelled Cay. Yes, I realize that. But here are the important differences proving why it's wrong to keep saying CocoKey instead of CocoKay. First of all, this island is owned (or at least long term leased) by Royal Caribbean. They get to call it whatever they want to as long as it's in their possession. They made up a little rhyme to describe it "Perfect Day at CocoCay" (CocoKay) See, CocoKey doesn't rhyme with Perfect Day. And to reinforce how they want it they have their own song about the island when you arrive there where they actually sing the name, and it's sung as CocoKay, not Key. As a matter fact we have to wait until we have heard them sing "CocoKay" before they let you get off the ship. Their on board videos about it call it CocoKay. The cruise director tells you on video about the fun you are about to have on CocoKay. The ships captain actually welcomes you to the island over the loudspeaker to CocoKay. That's CocoKay that everyone connected with Royal Caribbean is saying. Except you. Sorry but I'm going to enjoy the way it rhymes when I say "Perfect Day at CocoKay". Yes, it's spelled CocoCay, but pronounced CocoKay. I realize that no matter what I've said, that you'll probably continue to call it CocoKey. After all, nobody's perfect.
