Attached by boardwalks, the 20 open-air floating cabanas are each equipped with a private slide so you can swoosh into the ocean. They also have over-water hammocks, lounge chairs, dining areas, freshwater showers and wet bars. Pricing depends on when you cruise, but it generally runs from $999 to $1,599 for up to eight people. However, some Cruise Critic members report even higher prices on select sailings.
There are also cabanas on the beach, priced from $949 to $1,549, for up to eight people. All cabanas are booked on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no priority for suite or loyalty members.
In addition to the waived beach club fees, both types of cabanas come with watercoolers, snorkel gear and a dedicated Cabana Concierge to tend to any needs throughout the day. Spa services can be booked for an additional fee.
The opening of the Coco Beach Club marks the completion of the second phase of Royal Caribbean's $250 million redo of its private island.
Also officially opening, right next to the Coco Beach Club, is the reimagined South Beach, which now boasts beachside cabanas, complimentary beach chairs and an expanded water sports program that allows passengers to rent paddleboards. There's also a sports court for volleyball and basketball.
