If you're traveling to Perfect Day at CocoCay with the family, there are plenty of great activities to do together. And the best family weekend getaways get the entire group pumped up. As soon as you step off the ship, you'll find family-friendly activities at Arrivals Plaza. This is where you can pay to brave a zip line across the harbor or get soaked by water cannons at Captain Jill's Galleon. It has kiddie slides as well as interactive splash pads, so you can enjoy a drink at the rowboat bar and watch your kids enjoy their time splashing around.

Afterward, pay for admission at Thrill Waterpark, where you can slide down massive waterslides (Daredevil's Peak is the tallest slide in the Caribbean), or ride the waves at the largest wave pool in the Caribbean. If you want to get the whole family involved, head to Adventure Pool, where you can form teams and see who can complete the obstacle course faster. Test your balance in a simulated surf or grab your kids for a ride down The Twister, where you can hop in a two-person raft or The Slingshot, which can fit four of you as you plunge into the water.

The great part about heading to Thrill Waterpark is there are plenty of areas for you to relax, as well. Catch your breath while soaking up the sun next to the wave pool on a beach chair, grab a bite to eat at the Snack Shack or pay to reserve a private cabana ahead of time and spend the afternoon enjoying some family time in the best place for a weekend getaway.

Relax in Style

Cruises aren't just for families — they can also be an amazing option for a couple's weekend getaway. On great weekend getaways, when you take a Bahamas trip, you'll find some of the most romantic settings to relax with your partner. Head to Coco Beach Club, where you can soak up the sun and float in the sea. Snag yourself umbrella-covered beach chairs or pay to reserve an Overwater Cabana complete with a private waterslide, freshwater shower, overwater hammock and more.

When you visit Coco Beach Club and pay for a day pass, it's like you're on your own little all-inclusive holiday. You can gain access to a private beach or the clubhouse, enjoy the beach chairs, swim in an infinity pool and even dine at the Coco Beach Club restaurant. This restaurant serves up delicious food steps away from the sea. Plus, any cocktails, wine or beer you get is included in your beverage package, so you can sip on one of Perfect Day at CocoCay's specialty cocktails, Coco Cuveecocktail, without a care in the world.

Splash Around

Being at Perfect Day at CocoCay is basically like being on your own private island vacation. There are so many amazing amenities and places to check out, like Oasis Lagoon. It truly is an oasis, as well as the largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean.

Explore the different coves to find the vibe that suits your day or enjoy another specialty cocktail, Coco Loco, at the swim-up bar. It's the perfect spot for couples and friends who may be traveling together on great weekend getaways. For even more space, head to one of the lagoon's swim-up islands or pay to reserve a poolside cabana, complete with concierge service.

Chill Out

Chill Island is the ultimate location for a weekend getaway. If you're an adventure junkie, this is where you want to be spending your time.

Whether you spend the day splashing around with the whole family or pay for extras, there's something for everyone. You can pay for a guided Wave Jet tour, where you'll feel the wind in your hair, or pay to rent snorkeling equipment and see some of the most colorful fish and vibrant coral reefs. You can also rent paddleboards with your partner and set out to sea before heading back to your daybed to sip on a cocktail.

Once you've worked up an appetite from all that adventuring, it's time to find a seat for complimentary eats at Chill Grill. This laid-back beachside barbecue experience is the perfect way to round out your day. Grab a cold beer at the beer station, or fill your plate with some freshly made tacos or BBQ chicken, and bask in the glory that you planned this amazing weekend trip at Perfect Day at CocoCay.

Beach, Please

If you're looking for even more activities on your cruise to Perfect Day at CocoCay, you need to check out South Beach. From beach volleyball to basketball at the Sports Court, this is the place to hang out if you're looking to stay active with a little bit of relaxation sprinkled in.

It's the perfect place for families looking to play a friendly game of HORSE or couples to challenge each other to see who can spike the perfect ball at the volleyball court. You could easily spend the morning here getting sweaty before retreating to one of the other locations on the island for a dip in a pool or sea.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to planning great weekend getaways with Perfect Day at CocoCay. You'll have the time of your life, see unforgettable sights and make memories that will last a lifetime.
