Endless Family Adventure at CocoCay

Home > TravelBetter > Endless Family Adventure at CocoCay
When it comes to family vacations, destinations are like Goldilocks’ porridge: Finding the one that is just right can prove to be a tale in and of itself. The trouble is, everyone’s individual preferences are difficult to balance out — maybe your youngest wants thrills, and your oldest wants Instagram likes. Maybe your spouse wants serene views and you want all of the above — with a frozen rum concoction in your hand. Picking the perfect family adventure can be daunting … unless you know an island that’s just right from the start.

Allow us to introduce CocoCay: the fairytale tropical island exclusively available through Royal Caribbean International.

Dive-bomb Down the Tallest Waterslide in North America

CocoCay’s waterpark is a big deal — literally. With the biggest wave pool in the Caribbean, the tallest waterslide in North America (known as “Daredevil’s Peak”) and an utter cornucopia of excitement for all ages, it’s a million thrills a minute — perfect for any tropical-themed family adventure. But, should the grown-ups find themselves craving some quiet time (without having to return to the cruise ship), then as luck would have it …

Soak Up the Serenity with Choice Spots in Paradise

Just like the adventure, there are seemingly endless options for relaxation — you are on a tropical island after all. Keep an eye on your young ones’ splashing good time from the lounge chairs adjacent the Oasis Lagoon, or take your family to the beach proper with a relocation to Chill Island, CocoCay’s coastline that seems to somehow improve on the quintessential oasis idea. The accompanying Chill Grill helps with this endeavor, as beachside tacos, barbeque and libations all add a distinctive zest to a beach day. And, if lounging idyllic on the serene shore recharges everyone for more adventure, then jet ski and snorkel rentals guarantee a thrilling ocean escapade.

Did We Mention There’s a Helium Balloon?

It wasn’t enough to have North America’s tallest waterslide. It wasn’t enough to soak up enchanting views of the cerulean-blue horizon framed by gentle-swaying palms. CocoCay has gone above and beyond what you might expect of an exclusive-island paradise with the introduction of their very own giant helium balloon. Board the passenger basket and you’re up, up and away to a height of 450 feet over the island — bestowing a breathtaking view for miles in all directions. When it comes to Bahamian views, nothing else even comes close.
