Are you ready to embark on a journey to paradise? As you prepare for your upcoming adventure to Royal Caribbean's private island, CocoCay, we've got you covered with essential packing tips and must-haves to ensure you make the most of your Perfect Day at CocoCay.

1. Sun Protection Essentials: The radiant Caribbean sun is beckoning, but don't forget your sun protection essentials. Pack sunscreen, SPF lip balm, sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat, and a rash guard or cover-up to shield your skin from the sun's rays. Remember, staying sun-safe is key to enjoying your day to the fullest.

2. Baby Powder: Keep your feet and body sand-free and comfortable at CocoCay by using a simple trick – sprinkle baby powder on your skin to easily brush off sand after a day at the beach. This quick and effective solution ensures a hassle-free and enjoyable beach day.

3. Swimwear and Towels: Unwind on pristine beaches and dive into crystal-clear waters, so be sure to pack your favorite swimwear. Additionally, while CocoCay offers plenty of beach towels, consider bringing a lightweight, quick-drying towel or coverup for added comfort.

4. Comfortable Footwear: Whether you're strolling along the sandy shores or exploring the island's attractions, comfortable footwear is a must. Opt for sandals or sneakers that can handle various terrains while keeping your feet happy. Whether strolling the pier or enjoying the beach, water shoes are a practical choice for an enjoyable and hassle-free experience.

7. Snorkeling Gear: CocoCay is home to stunning underwater landscapes and vibrant marine life. If you're an avid snorkeler, consider bringing your own snorkeling gear to fully immerse yourself in the captivating underwater world.

Purchasing your own gear prior to your trip is a better deal, offering versatility for future trips.

8. Camera or GoPro: Capture the memories of your Perfect Day at CocoCay with stunning photographs and videos. A camera or GoPro will allow you to relive the breathtaking moments you encounter on the island.

9. Cash and Identification: While many activities on CocoCay are included in your cruise package, it's a good idea to have some cash on hand for any optional purchases, souvenirs, or tips. Additionally, carry your identification, cruise card, and a copy of your passport for seamless island exploration. A locking privacy pouch is a smart addition for solo travelers worried about belongings. It helps leave items secure while enjoying the water or getting refreshments, and options like a water-resistant pouch with a security tether are available for just $26.99 to safeguard essentials like your phone, cash, and SeaPass card.

10. Insect Repellent: While the island's beauty is unparalleled, it's also a natural habitat for insects. Pack some insect repellent to ensure a comfortable and bite-free experience.
