No matter where or when you choose to sail to Perfect Day at CocoCay, each ship that visits this unforgettable destination on a Bahamas family vacation has a Windjammer restaurant. One of the most kid-friendly dining options onboard, it’s the best place to grab breakfast before exploring the island. Plus, its sweeping glass windows offer a birds-eye view of Perfect Day at CocoCay when the ship is in port, so you can easily get the lay of the land before venturing ashore.
Perfect Day at CocoCay typically opens at 8 a.m., and with all the incredible things to see and do onshore, you’ll want to get an early start. Once you’ve walked the pier and arrived at the entrance to the island, you’ll have the option to choose between three colored paths. The green path leads to the island’s more tranquil and secluded spaces, like Chill Island®. The blue path leads to Thrill Waterpark, home of the tallest waterslide in North America, and the largest wave pool in the Caribbean. If you just want to take your time exploring the island first, take the orange path.
Once you’ve refueled and are ready to conquer more adventures, take your family adventure sky high with a helium balloon ride in Up, Up and Away. Located on the north end of the island next to Oasis Lagoon, this first-of-its-kind Royal Caribbean experience sends guests soaring up to 450 feet in the air, making it the highest vantage point in The Bahamas and yielding unbeatable views of the entire island and surrounding turquoise waters. But the aerial adventures don’t stop there — if your kids still haven’t quite gotten their adrenaline fix, you can treat them to the ride of their lives along 1,600 feet of zip line crisscrossing Perfect Day at CocoCay and zipping over the fountain.
No matter how old your kids are or how big your group is, a three- or four-night Royal Caribbean cruise to Perfect Day at CocoCay is without a doubt one of the best options for an unforgettable family vacation your kids will love. With so many different ways to play onshore, they’ll never want to go anywhere else. And since all the planning is taken care of by the cruise line, all you need to do is focus on making memories.
