Perfect Day at Lelepa, Vanuatu Announced

Royal Caribbean has announced a new private island destination will be developed in the South Pacific and it will be named Perfect Day at Lelepa, Vanuata. The private destination will be much different from the current Perfect Day at CocoCay in the Bahamas.

Royal Caribbean International President and CEO Michael Bayley, said:

“We believe our destinations should be sustainably designed.”

“That idea goes beyond simply protecting the ecological features of Lelepa and includes showing respect for the people and traditions that make this a special place.”

The destination will be developed with the local ecosystem taking center stage. It will be the first carbon-neutral private cruise destination in the world with specific sustainability features being built.

Vanuatu Prime Minister Salwai said:

“Vanuatu is a true paradise for both our people and the visitors we welcome to our shores each year. 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.”

The cruise line has not revealed any specific details or plans of the new destination but they did say it will not be like Perfect Day at CocoCay as guests around the world have a different definition of a Perfect Day! We expect it to be more laid back and a stunning destination which Royal Caribbean guests are going to really be able to relax at.
