The summer paradise features 13 waterslides, multiple pools, swim-up bars and beach-side dining options. Royal Caribbean says the attractions range from total relaxation to thrill-seeking.

According to, the re-opened island has tons of attractions for families:

“The newly-reopened island is only accessible to Royal Caribbean guests and is the first in the cruise line’s ‘Perfect Day Island Collection’ private destinations that its ships will travel to around the world. Along with massive waterslides—Daredevil’s Peak is 135 feet—the private island has a wave pool, adventure pool, and freshwater pool, plus beach-side cabanas and special beach areas designated for kids. There’s even a hot air balloon-like experience: Up Up and Away takes you 450 feet in the air inside a helium balloon to get a perfect view of the entire island.”

Royal Caribbean also boasts that Daredevil’s Peak is the “tallest waterslide in North America,” according to the Royal Caribbean website.

CocoCay also features creative dining options that integrate the water theme. On the property, you’ll find a swim-up bar and even a restaurant with a rowboat bar. The island’s largest dining venue, Chill Grill, give diners a chance to eat on colorful picnic tables overlooking the water.

While most of the island’s attractions open in May 2019, Royal Caribbean says some of the features won’t open until December 2019. Guests will have to wait until December to explore South Beach, Coco Beach Club and the overwater cabanas.

Royal Caribbean lists several ways to visit the exclusive CocoCay island. Cruises out of Florida and the Northeast can get you access to the island, with itineraries including three-night, four-night, seven-night and eight-night. Options include shorter weekend cruises onboard the Mariner of the Seas and Navigator of the Seas or longer trips on Royal Carribean’s Oasis Class ships.
