Royal Caribbean International has announced it will build a new private island destination in the South Pacific, dubbed Perfect Day at Lelepa, Vanuatu.
Vanuatu’s Prime Minister Charlot Salwai and Royal Caribbean CEO Michael Bayley revealed during a ceremony last week that the destination would be created in partnership with the community of Vanuatu to showcase its natural beauty, highlight local culture, provide employment opportunities and educate residents on the islands.
In addition, Royal Caribbean has vowed to keep construction and operation of the destination sustainable. Perfect Day at Lelepa will become the first carbon-neutral private cruise destination in the world and safeguard the island’s ecosystems.
“Vanuatu is a true paradise for both our people and the visitors we welcome to our shores each year. Today marks a major step forward in our island nation’s close relationship with Royal Caribbean and one that will support sustainable growth for future generations. The Ni-Vanuatu people look forward to welcoming Royal Caribbean guests from around the world to enjoy extraordinary adventures and relaxation during their Perfect Day at Lelepa.Vanuatu’s Prime Minister Charlot Salwai
Perfect Day at Lelepa will have a different look and feel from Royal Caribbean’s popular Perfect Day at CocoCay located in the Bahamas. Royal Caribbean has said they are looking to create the ideal South Pacific experience.
