  1. Coco Cay is beautiful. Most of the passengers feel the activities on the island should be included especially since RCL owns it. The cabanas are sooooo overpriced and not worth the price you pay. Our family purchased the Chill Island and Oasis cabanas at pre-construction prices which was reasonable. There are plenty of chairs, umbrellas and shade around the island so cabanas aren’t necessary.

      I agree! We were gonna book the slides but they just went up to 125.00……my family will pass now

    For what we are paying for the cruise Coco Cay water park should be included. Since that everything is extra charge on the cruise line compared to the others. Its ridiculous for a family of 4 to afford this kind of vacation. Should lower price and make smaller ships.

    I recently booked a cruise RCC and now I understand why Disney is the best. I have never spent extra money on DCL other than getting an adult drink. Prices should include unlimited beverages and fun on the private island. People say DCL is expensive but it’s worth the money because once you pay for it all you don’t have to worry about anyting on your trip

      I could not agree more with this post!!! I was totally shocked by the fact that after you pay for the RCL Cruise we had to book the water park for extra. We thought it was all included like on Disney. I mean its alot extra. I think the reps must get a commission or something because they tried to push us into pre- buying and we did not. Don’t prebuy!!! Check it out first there is still alot of free stuff to do . We bought the ticket for the kids only when we go there. We used to love Coco Cay . It was such a tranquil and beautiful island. It was our favorite spot of all cruising destinations in the Caribbean and we have been to them all. Not any more its way over priced for sure!! It looks like any other over done, man made ,water park you can visit with out paying for a cruise. Nothing special and way over priced. We booked just to go to Coco Cay and were heart broken when we saw what had been done to it. Shame on you RCL for ruining a perfect Day at Coco Cay with that albatross of a water contraption!!!

    Royal Caribbean took what was a perfect day on a private island and turned it into a disaster marked by greed greed and more greed. Coco cay was a great open beautiful island that ships used tenders to access and you felt like you were in a Caribbean island instead if at six flags or Disney world. This over hyped over priced over marketed waste of what was a perfect day is now nothing special. It was special years ago now it’s like anywhere else. Royal Caribbean ruined their island

    Do not buy tickets in advance for Coco Cay. What you r not being told is the fact that you need tickets ONLY if you are going to the WATER PARK, and they r pricey! If you r going to the beach, just get off the ship and walk to the island. You do NOT have to pay for the chairs and beach . Lunch is free… eat breakfast before you go….not available on the island. We were a party of 7 celebrating our50th wedding anniversary. The rep on the phone told us when we pre purchase the tickets, that everyone had to have a ticket.. .spent $500 in tickets. .only used 1 adult, and 2 kids tickets. . Explained to the rep that there is a 77 yr old, 73 year old, 16 year old, and 10 year old who just wanted to go to the beach, not the WATERPARK! THE OTHER 3 WENT TO THE WATERPATK. SHE TOLD ME THAT EVERYONE NEEDED TO HAVE A TICKET! TRIED TO GET MY MONEY BACK FOR THE 4 TICKETS AND WAS TOLD NO.

    I plan to visit on August 10, did research and will use the free side of the island. I believe that they have 1/2 day passes which I won’t use, just hang around the beach and will have the ship to enjoy

    I appreciate all comments from past guests. We will be traveling with 10 family members in summer 2020. 6 of us are in 60’s and 70’s with one grandson’s family including 2 boys under 10. Probably none of us “old timers” will pay to do the rides but want the younger family to enjoy themselves to the max. So thanks for the heads up on pricing.

    How much is now pass for Perfect Day at CocoCay in 2020 ? I have to buy before or i can buy pass there, is it 1/2 day offer ?

    One thing I have noticed about Royal is that the longer you wait to book something the more expensive it gets, especially if you wait to get it on the ship. I am not sure about CocoCay.

    Can we walk through the water park to watch our grandchildren or do we have to pay to get in even if not using the rides?

    We have free passes to coco cay from our cruise for coco cay water Park does this include the water slides and zip lines ?
