Royal Caribbean Expanding CocoCay For 13,000 Guests Daily

Perfect Day at CocoCay

Royal Caribbean Group is set to launch Hideaway Beach at Perfect Day at CocoCay later this year, meaning the company is increasing capacity for its private island up to 13,000 guests daily, according to President and CEO Jason Liberty, speaking on the company’s year-end and fourth quarter earnings call.

The new adults-only area of the island will be open in time for the Icon of the Seas, which will call on the island on her weekly Caribbean sailings when she debuts early next year.

Naftali Holtz, CFO, said during the first quarter of 2023, the company will have 80 percent of its capacity sailing form North America, and mostly to the Caribbean.

“This is higher than in the first quarter of 2019, particularly for short Caribbean sailings, and we have added more capacity in the region to capitalize on the incredible Perfect Day at CocoCay,” he said.

Michael Bayley, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International, said to expect between 2.5 million and 3 million guests at CocoCay this year.
