Royal Caribbean has announced that Vanuatu, one of the natural gems of the South Pacific, will be the home of its newest private island destination – Perfect Day at Lelepa, Vanuatu.

PLUS, it will also be the first-ever carbon neutral cruise destination in the world.

The announcement of the new project was made by Vanuatu’s Prime Minister, Charlot Salwai, and Royal Caribbean International President and CEO Michael Bayley.

Salwai and Bayley said the destination will be created in partnership with the community of Vanuatu to showcase the distinct natural ecological beauty and diverse local culture of the island nation as well as provide employment and education opportunities.


Dreaming of the perfect day…

Perfect Day at Lelepa will be built with sustainability features designed to safeguard the island’s ecosystems and will be the first carbon-neutral* private cruise destination in the world.

“We believe our destinations should be sustainably designed. That idea goes beyond simply protecting the ecological features of Lelepa and includes showing respect for the people and traditions that make this a special place.”

Michael Bayley, Royal Caribbean International President and CEO 

Perfect Day at Lelepa will have a different look and feel from Royal Caribbean’s wildly popular Perfect Day at CocoCay because RCI guests around the world all have different definitions for their perfect day — and all of them are right. The Perfect Day at Lelepa designers and natural environment have created the ideal South Pacific experience and Royal Caribbean says that they expect the results to be stunning.

“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.”
