Royal Carribean is developing its own private island which will be the first carbon-neutral cruise destination in the world

If you wish to travel in luxury without being hounded by the tourist crowds, private cruises could just be your thing. And presenting you with a new cruise island is Royal Caribbean that recently announced ‘Perfect Day at Lelepa’ as its plush new voyage home. Located at Vanuatu, the island will be the first carbon-neutral cruise destination in the world and will be designed with features that “safeguard the island’s ecosystems.”

According to Royal Caribbean, the ‘Perfect Day at Lelepa’ will be distinctly different from the cruise line’s other private island. It will be created in collaboration with the community of Vanuatu and will aim at showcasing “distinct natural ecological beauty” and diverse culture of the island nation. The stunning isle will further provide an ideal South Pacific rendezvous to voyagers with just the right balance between luxury and nature’s rawness.

Commenting on 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 will be opened to the public in 2020.
