Royal Caribbean Designing its Own Private Island
Global cruise company Royal Caribbean has announced that it is developing its own private island that it expected to be the world’s first carbon-neutral cruise destination.
Located at Vanuatu, a South Pacific Ocean nation made up of around 80 islands, the private island development is called ‘Perfect Day at Lelepa, Vanuat’ and will be designed in collaboration with the local community to showcase “distinct natural ecological beauty” that safeguards the island’s ecosystems.
Speaking about the project, Vanuatu Prime Minister Salwai said, “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.”
Royal Caribbean’s ‘Perfect Day at Lelepa’ will be audited and certified by an independent third-party expert in terms of carbon neutrality and is set to ope to the public in 2020.
