Royal Caribbean announced its newest mission: to deliver the ultimate beach day. The cruise line said its first Royal Beach Club would launch in Antigua, along a half-mile of beachfront close to Fort James.

RCI signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the government of Antigua and Barbuda for the new project, scheduled to open in 2021.

Built for Royal Caribbean passengers, The Royal Beach Club at Fort James is expected to combine the island’s beautiful beaches with the line’s signature service.

Curated as the ultimate beach experience, Royal Beach Club Collection is due to bring the unique features of each destination to life. In Antigua, travelers can take in the island’s unique views from private cabanas or plunge into a pool and swim up to the bar to order a rum punch.

Though Royal doesn't expect to release specific designs for the destination for several months, it expects to offer regional fare, live music, and island-style BBQs, along with unforgettable experiences, such as wave runners, snorkeling, paddleboarding, a family splash pad and pool with swim-up bar.
