With new ships, amplifications and private islands all filling our newsfeeds, there’s plenty of news to share for Royal Caribbean. Here are just some of the cruise line’s latest highlights.
New Island Selected For Perfect Day Collection
Royal Caribbean has revealed it’s adding a new destination to the Perfect Day Collection – Lelepa, Vanuatu, situated northeast of Brisbane, Australia. The cruise line has advised that the island will be built sustainably, with features in place to safeguard the island’s ecosystems.
The new island will also be the first carbon-neutral private cruise destination in the world and will be audited and certified by an independent, third-party expert to ensure it meets the standards for carbon neutrality.
Royal Caribbean President and CEO, Michael Bayley said that the project will, “showcase the distinct natural ecological beauty and diverse local culture of the island nation as well as provide employment and education opportunities.” He continues:
“Anyone who has encountered the tremendous natural beauty of Lelepa can understand why it is the perfect setting for ‘Perfect Day […] Our guests who travel to the South Pacific are seeking authentic adventures and genuine relaxation, and they will find both here.”
Bayley has stressed that the new island will have a different ‘look and feel’ to the cruise line’s other Perfect Day destination, CocoCay, commenting that. “our guests around the world all have different definitions for their perfect day – and all of them are right. Our designers and nature have created the ideal South Pacific experience and we expect the results will be stunning.”
Sip Exclusive Beer At CocoCay
Speaking of private islands, Royal Caribbean has also unveiled its own branded beer – Chilla Thrilla. The beverage will be available for cruisers exclusively on the cruise line’s private island resort, Perfect Day at CocoCay. The launch is a result of the cruise line teaming up with the Funky Buddha Brewery to create an exclusive beer.
The beer is tropical ale with mango and guava flavour and offers a 4.5% alc/vol ratio. It will be packaged in 335ml cans with different labels, each highlighting different areas of Perfect Day at CocoCay.
