Royal Caribbean has just announced its third private island destination: Perfect Day at Lelepa, Vanuatu. While this exciting, new private island destination in the South Pacific will only start welcoming Royal Caribbean guests sometime in 2022, Royal Caribbean has revealed some information that discerning cruisers will be happy to know.
For starters, Perfect Day at Lelepa is proudly designed to be the first carbon-neutral private cruise destination in the world. Created in partnership with Vanuatu's community, the private island destination project will, of course, be consciously ‘built with sustainability features designed to safeguard the island's ecosystems'.
Besides creating the perfect South Pacific experience for Royal Caribbean's guests, Perfect Day at Lelepa will be built to spotlight Vanuatu's unique natural ecological beauty and diverse local culture. According to Royal Caribbean, locals can also look forward to enjoying education and employment opportunities.
More details regarding the innovative techniques Royal Caribbean will employ to attain carbon neutrality will be revealed soon. As of right now, the cruise operator has only made it known that an independent, third-party expert will audit and certify Perfect Day at Lelepa to ensure it meets the stringent standards required for carbon neutrality in time to come.
On another note, Perfect Day at Lelepa will not be a replica of Royal Caribbean's wildly popular Perfect Day at CocoCay nestled in the Bahamas. Although Royal Caribbean has been tight-lipped thus far, we know Perfect Day at Lelepa will boast a distinct feel and look compared to Perfect Day at CocoCay. Royal Caribbean has promised that Perfect Day at Lelepa will be ‘stunning'.
For those who are curious, Labadee, Haiti is another one of Royal Caribbean's existing private island destination. Labadee offers guests a different experience than Perfect Day at CocoCay, too.
