Taking a cruise has never been high on my to do list but if you’re going to throw a floating bar at your own private island into the equation, I might have to reconsider. While the beach part of the “beach bar” might be under a little bit of water in this case, I think I could make do. Kon Tiki in Antigua and Jamaica’s Pelican Bar are surrounded by water and they’re doing just fine. You’ll just have to watch that first step after sitting at the bar all day.
This floating bar is part of Coco Cay, Royal Caribbean’s privately own island in the Bahamas. Since I already have two kids who would probably love to hop on a cruise, I’m sure we could come up with some excursion for them while the parents stop adulting and enjoy a little free time of their own. Sounds absolutely delightful, don’t you think?
