Royal Caribbean’s private island, that is due to open in May, is promising to be a cruise destination both adults and kids will enjoy.

Perfect Day at CocoCay, accessible only as a stop on RCI cruise ships, is under construction and will unveil new amenities, such as the “Caribbean’s largest wave pool” and the “tallest waterslide in North America” on May 4. During the stop at the island, passengers will have the chance to ride in a helium balloon 450 feet (137 meters) in the air and overlook the Bahamas or ride a 1,600ft2 (488 m2) zip-line across the harbor.
