Royal Caribbean are making big changes to their private island paradise of Coco Cay in the Bahamas!

The new design for the island will be ready for Autumn 2019 and there are some fantastic enhancements to experience for all ages. The main features are below but take a look at the video to bring it all to life!

You can have a fantastic view over the island, 450 foot up in the air, from the helium balloon!

Relax at Coco Cay Beach Club which will feature the only over-water cabanas in the Bahamas! ( This is where you would find me! )

The island will also have another first, the largest wave pool in the Caribbean! These wave pools are always so much fun!

The water park on the island looks fantastic! The ‘Daredevils Tower’ will have 7 slides, including the fully vertical Screeching Serpent, the 135 foot tall Daredevils Peak ( Which is the tallest water slide in North America! ), the coiling Green Mamba or have a race with a friend on the twin Dueling Demon drop slides or the Manta Raycers.

The island also boasts the Caribbeans largest freshwater pool. If you are looking to relax and spend some quality time with friends or family in one of the coves, or even your own private cabana, this could be the area for you!

 

If you would like to visit Coco Cay next year on your Royal Caribbean cruise, give me a call or drop me an email and I will find an itinerary to suit you!

So you may know from my previous blogs from last year that i was planning to revisit my favourite ship so far Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas. Just to recap last year me and my family went on The freedom of the Seas sailing from Barcelona around the med and i fell in love with the ship & staff on-board and generally the whole experience from the food to the service & entertainment was exactly what we wanted out of our family holiday and more. When the holiday had come to end we swiftly made the decision that we wanted to try and book on the same ship for our 2018 holiday.


On arrival home and back to work & school for us i started to look at the possible itinerary’s for 2018 school holidays to see what i could find and started to put together an idea that has now turned into our dream holiday! During the 6 week summer holiday period Freedom is doing 7 night Caribbean sailings from the port of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Given my daughters age (nearly 7 now) we have never wanted to do anything that involves long haul flights, therefore we have always stuck to the Med for our holidays and the furthest we have ventured as a family is Egypt. After a few lengthy family discussions we decided to book the cruise only knowing the flights were not available yet and decided on the below itinerary.

FREEDOM OF THE SEAS Itinerary

Date Port Arrival Boarding Departure Remark
Sat 25 Aug SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO 20:30 Docked
Sun 26 Aug PHILIPSBURG, ST. MAARTEN 08:00 17:00 Docked
Mon 27 Aug BASSETERRE, ST KITTS NEVIS 08:00 17:00 Docked

Fri 31 Aug CRUISING 00:00 00:00 Cruising

As you can see what a beautiful Itinerary 6 Caribbean islands out of a 7 night sailing! So perfect ship and amazing itinerary now onto the tricky bit! Building the holiday into a package to include flights, accommodation and transfers. Please see my next blog and find out how i have pieced the holiday together to make up my dream holiday.

Dress code on board your cruise ship:

We all want to look our best ( not all time) so when we choose a cruise holiday the dress code is really not that complicated, its a holiday but feels like your still staying in a hotel. I love to dress up in the evening especially but its not always necessary when your going for your evening meal its part of my holiday.

So here are some does & dont’s whilst on your cruise holiday

 

 

Day time:

Some people dress up all the time even if they are just sitting around the pool drinking a pina-colada, reading there book, or just watching the world go by. Whilst you are relaxing by the pool in your  swim suits remember its better than the birthday suit save this for when your in the cabin. But then again be careful as you can get caught out. Naked sunbathing is not the done thing on board  most cruise lines are american and there rules do not permit nude or topless sunbathing.

Smart casual is all ways a good choice daytime or night time dependent on the days activities. So remember we come in all shapes and sizes and no one is the same.

 

Evening wear:

Cruising is for relaxing so you may want to just laze around in the pyjamas,dressing gown, ( even again naked but in the privacy of your cabin.) I am sure your fellow traveler on the cruise would not be expecting to see you in your night wear when going to a formal night on board the cruise, but this  has been know to happen that’s going to turn a few heads. There could be a themed celebratory pajamas party option but double check, so  Always be careful when dressing for dinner as there is always that one time when things can go wrong and your in that embarrassing situation and we have all had one.

So the moral of the story is always be prepared for the unexpected.
