Independence of the Seas Live Blog – Day 2 – Perfect day at CocoCay

The second day of our Independence of the Seas cruise takes us to the main dish sailing: a visit to Perfect Day at CocoCay.

Our ship docked at about 7:30 a.m., and the ship cleared customs at 8 a.m.

We took the kids in the Windjammer for breakfast which was very full as everyone was trying to get something to eat before getting off the ship. It’s times like this that I miss having Park Cafe or Cafe @ Two70 for an alternative place for breakfast.

As we disembarked from the ship, Harmony of the Seas joined us.

The weather was glorious with no clouds in the sky, warm temperatures and low humidity.

We purchased CocoCay Waterpark tickets for this visit so headed straight to Thrill Waterpark.

The kids were going up and down the slides and all over the park, while the adults mostly stayed around our chairs and the wave pool. The water was a little cold, but I just liked being outside.

We had lunch at the Snack Shack, located inside Thrill Water Park (there are two other locations around the island).

After lunch we decided to take a break from the slides and head to the beach. We chose Harbor Beach as something different to try.

The appeal of Harbor Beach is that this cove has no waves at all.

The kids loved it as there are rocks on one side that are home to many hermit crabs, which they found great fun finding.

We met a few friends from Harmony of the Seas during the day which was a really nice surprise.

We finally made it back to the ship as our time was coming to an end in CocoCay. I showered and immediately took a nap after a full day of fun on the island.

Dinner tonight was at Playmakers.

Playmakers is really big and located on deck 4 between Boleros and Casino Royale. It’s an impressive space, and our server Cyrus looked after us well throughout the meal.

After dinner we went down to Studio B to see the Freeze Frame ice skating show.

The show is a journey through the music of the 1940s, 50s, 60s and 70s. Great hits to enjoy watching the skaters do their thing.

After the show we had a few drinks in the pub before calling it a night.

Tomorrow we will be in Nassau, Bahamas.

Spurious observations

I bought this Perfect Day mug from CocoCay Tervis!

At the back of the ice skating show there is a large newspaper with an article just before the launch of the Oasis class ships with a competition to name the ships of Project Genesis.

I found the clandestine pianist in front of Boleros. He’s the same free-riding pianist I saw on Odyssey of the Seas last summer.
