Royal Caribbean Announces a Second 'Perfect Day' Private Island
Royal Caribbean has announced their second “Perfect Day” private island destination — this time in the South Pacific.
The island nation of Vanuatu, which is an archipelago, will be home to Perfect Day at Lelepa, Vanuatu. The announcement was made by Vanuatu’s Prime Minister Charlot Salwai and Royal Caribbean’s President and CEO Michael Bayley. The destination, exclusive to Royal Caribbean cruisers, will be created in partnership with the community of Vanuatu to showcase its distinct natural beauty and diverse local culture.
Perfect Day at Lelepa will be built with sustainability features to safeguard the island’s ecosystem, and will be the first carbon neutral private cruise destination in the world. Sustainability-focused and Australia-based firm Cox Architecture will serve as lead architect on the project.
“Vanuatu is a true paradise for both our people and the visitors we welcome to our shores each year,” said Prime Minister Salwai. “Today marks a major step forward in our island nation’s close relationship with Royal Caribbean and one that will support sustainable growth for future generations. The Ni-Vanuatu people look forward to welcoming Royal Caribbean guests from around the world to enjoy extraordinary adventures and relaxation during their Perfect Day at Lelepa.”
Michael Bayley added, “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 explained that Perfect Day at Lelepa will be distinct, boasting a different look and feel from Perfect Day at CocoCay in the Bahamas. “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.”
