Get away from it all with Royal Caribbean at the Perfect Day at CocoCay

Looking to plan a fun-in-the-sun vacation with something for everyone can be a challenge – someone wants to relax on the beach, someone else wants the thrills of a water park, and someone else wants to cruise around and check out exciting new ports. Royal Caribbean could be the answer you’re looking for. CocoCay, the new vibrant and picturesque Royal Caribbean private island located in the Bahamas, adds in the beach and fun to an already exciting cruise itinerary.

So what is CocoCay?

CocoCay is Royal Caribbean’s private island opened in 2019 designed with something for everyone. With their slogan “Perfect Day at CocoCay” it seems to be one of the best places to go, right? With 13 water slides, a 1,600 foot long zip-line, a tethered helium balloon ride, a swim up bar, private floating cabanas, and snorkeling, there is so much to choose from! A piece of paradise, this is the perfect place to relax, recharge, or thrill.

Here’s a breakdown of some of the best things this private island in the Bahamas has to offer

DareDevil’s Peak – The tallest water slide in North America sits at approximately 135 feet high! This slide calls to anyone not afraid of heights that wants to be a dare devil and get the thrill of a lifetime! This comes with the charge of water park admission.

Wave pool – Even in the middle of the Caribbean, you can safely enjoy the waves in the largest wave pool in the Caribbean at CocoCay Thrill water park. There is an admission to the park but the admission has a lot to offer in this water park.

Up, Up, and Away – Taller than the Statue of Liberty, this tethered helium balloon flies small groups 450 feet above the island where you can have breathtaking views of the whole island for a charge.

Splash Summit – Boasting over 1,600 feet of water slides, here you can find multi-rider slides, slides like The Slingshot, and The Twister. Although there is a fee for this activity, it is a great place for your group.

Captain Jack’s – A full-service restaurant with a full bar and live music. This is the only restaurant on the island that comes with a price but well worth it!

Oasis Lagoon – The largest freshwater pool in the Bahamas, this is a complimentary lagoon to everyone at the island.

Chill Island – If you want complete chill, this is where you want to be. A place where you sit back and enjoy the beach laced in beautiful white sand and blue water, take in the sun and just relax! It’s the perfect spot to set up a “home base” for those that want to take off to the thrills for a bit.

Splash Away Bay – Described as the perfect place for kids, this has fountains and buckets for kids to enjoy – complimentary of course.

Skipper Grill – Satisfy your building appetite with complimentary sandwiches, salads, tacos, guacamole, BBQ chicken and so much more!

South Beach – If you’re in the mood for physical activity, this is the area to go. Located on the South Beach part of the island, grab a partner and enjoy volleyball, paddle boarding and basketball.

Chill Grill – A complimentary grill with some fresh bites like tacos and BBQ chicken on the go, Chill Grill is known for its laid back vibes. With a beer station where you can grab a drink yourself (additional cost), this is the place to make a pit stop!

Multi-Generational Family Vacations

We want to offer up some inspirational options for when the time comes that we can all ‘B’ Together again.

Multi-generational family vacations can produce happiness long after your vacation is over. You’ll create and cherish memories for a lifetime, which will become stories for generations to come. These popular vacations not only will bring a family closer together, but it is also one of the top vacation plans we are asked about. Whether you come from a huge family or a smaller but tight knit family, multi-generation vacations can be some of the best vacations of your life! Here, we suggest some destinations that will fulfill everyone’s interests.

Walt Disney World

Being huge Walt Disney World fans, this is one of our favorite multi-generational vacations. The cast and crew at Disney really do bring the magic when it comes to vacations, for both kids and adults alike. They help everyone and anyone when it comes to situations and experiences. From going with grandparents, to aunts, uncles, and cousins, you really have so much to do here! The food, the atmosphere, the memories! Once Disney opens again, this….is the place to be for some true magic for the young and the young-at-heart.

A Beach in the States (Florida or California)

This suggestion is nice if you want something relaxing but maybe you do not have a lot of vacation time from work — or a passport. The beaches in Florida and California are beautiful, so you can’t go wrong here! What’s nice about this vacation option is when seeking accommodations, you can get your own space as individual family units and everyone can meet up during the day. Mealtime can also be fun, with each family unit taking turns hosting dinners for everyone. This option is such a fun vacation, and for some, only a short drive or plane ride away.

Mexico and the Caribbean

Looking for something more tropical and exotic? Our recommendation would be to stay at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico or an island in the Caribbean once these areas open up again. The benefit of an all-inclusive resort is that they are budget friendly since you pay for everything ahead of time. There are any number of locations for any budget and you won’t have to argue about whose turn it is to pay for dinner, drinks or experiences! This option is also great for families who want full-on relaxation 24/7. Sit by the beach, eat, and drink whatever and whenever you want and everyone can make their own schedules. You cannot really go wrong here.

Europe

If members of your family are full of adventure and are seeking that once-in-a-lifetime vacation, Europe is top of the list. While this trip will require a lot of planning once Europe destinations are active again, our Travel Advisors can help you plan every detail. Maybe you want to head back to your family roots and learn more about your family heritage.

Ocean Cruises

Similar to an all-inclusive, cruising offers just a little more movement when it comes to relaxing.  While operations are paused right now, cruises offer options to have exciting excursions added-on at each destination you visit making it more of an “adventure” vacation. This vacation option might be the easiest one for families of all different age groups when it comes to “things to do”. The kids will never go bored with all the planned activities on board while the adults enjoy wine tasting, adult-only areas of the ship, casinos, entertainment shows, and much more! Plus, it could be a great compromise if some in your family want an all-inclusive experience and others want to cruise, this option can give you both.

With so many vacation options available, we hope this helps you determine the best destination or type of vacation that works best for your multi-generational family when the time is right. If you need help planning or have any questions, our expert Travel Advisors are available to assist plan your perfect family getaway.
