PORTS OF CALL

Port Canaveral, Florida - Port Canaveral lies just 35 miles east of Orlando, along the 72 miles of pristine beaches known as Florida's Space Coast. Besides its close proximity to Orlando's theme parks, you'll find space-age attractions of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, and the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame.

CocoCay, Bahamas - Located in the middle of the Caribbean's bright blue water lies the secluded island of CocoCay. With its white-sand beaches and spectacular surroundings, CocoCay is a wonderland of adventure. Reserved exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests, this tropical paradise has recently been updated with new aquatic facilities, nature trails and a ton of great places to just sit back, relax and enjoy a tropical drink.

PERFECT DAY COCOCAY

Perfect Day Cococay

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

San Juan, Puerto Rico - In days of yore, the waters near Puerto Rico teemed with pirate ships commanded by the likes of Sir Francis Drake. Aye, they are long gone, but in their wake they have left an island of national treasures: La Casa Blanca, built in 1501 for the island's first governor, Ponce de Leon; the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan; the tropical rain forests of El Yunque.  

Philipsburg, St. Maarten - An island under two flags. Sample the Dutch treats of Philipsburg: chocolate, cheese, delftware. On the French side linger over bouillabaisse, shop for Parisian perfumes.
