South Pacific Cruises: Royal Caribbean Secures Island in South Pacific
Royal Caribbean has a new island which is sure to please every passenger on a South Pacific cruise.
South Pacific cruises have always been popular due to the natural beauty of the area, the friendly people, and the romantic history of the islands. Royal Caribbean is adding something special for their cruises to the South Pacific.
Opening in 2022, ‘Perfect Day at Lelepa’ in Vanuatu is Royal Caribbean’s newest private island destination. It will be the first private island destination in the Southern Hemisphere and a delight for those passengers cruising the South Pacific.
Perfect Day at Lelepa
Royal Caribbean International President and CEO Michael Bayley, Perfect Day at Lelepa will look different and have a different atmosphere and feel from Perfect Day at CocoCay. The designers for Perfect Day at Lelepa will create a whole new experience for visitors and one that suits the island destination.
Vanuatu’s Prime Minister, Charlot Salwai, and Michael Bayley have stated that the Perfect Day experience will showcase the island’s natural beauty and diverse local culture. This exciting project will also result in new employment and educational opportunities.
The design will also include sustainability features to protect the island’s ecosystem and will be the world’s first carbon-neutral private cruise island. This will not only protect the island, it’s wildlife, and plants but will also show respect for the people and traditions of this beautiful South Pacific island.
The islands were settled by the British and the French in the 1800s and were administered by both countries until they received their independence in 1980. In addition to the Ni-Vanuatu and other Pacific Island natives, there are small communities of British, French, Australian, Vietnamese, Chinese, and New Zealanders making it Vanuatu one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world.
Lelepa is very beautiful, and the ‘Perfect Day at Lelepa’ will provide guests with an authentic South Pacific tropical island experience. Lelepa’s beaches are soft white sand, and the water is sparkling turquoise. It’s the perfect place for swimming and snorkeling or just relaxing on the beautiful beach. Lelepa is home to historic caves, pristine beaches, and the beautiful rainforest. It’s definitely a jewel in the Vanuatu Islands.
