While Royal Caribbean International's fleet make regular calls at both CocoCay and Labadee, its sister companies, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Cruises, make periodic calls.
CoCoCay is an island in the Bahamas which has tons of water sports for families to enjoy.
They include: snorkeling, kayaking, wave runners and parasailing.
In addition there are a number water "toys" for kids of all ages. SeaTrek water slide is 40 feet high and is the "world's largest inflatable water slide" according to Royal Caribbean. It's available to use free of charge. Cayalanas Aqua Park is the place for kids to be on CocoCay. This floating playground is the largest aqua park in the Bahamas and includes: in-water trampolines, log roll to try to walk on, oversized sand castles, and more floating, inflatable apparatus to climb, jump and walk on.
Labadee is located on the remote north tip of Haiti, amidst lush foliage and mountainous landscape. There are tons of options for families at Labadee, including water sports rentals similar to CocoCay (above) and a few excursions. There is a guided kayaking tour through the Bay of Labadee amidst mountains which cascade to the sea.
One side of the beach area features Dragon's Breath Flight Line. This 2,600 feet long zip line over the ocean affords spectacular views of mountains, sea, and your docked ship. Passengers must be at least 60 inches tall and 75 pounds, thus older children and teens can partake in the zip line if desired.
There is an extensive Aqua Park in Labadee with inflatable icebergs to climb up and slide down, inflatable slide, and rolls to try to walk on without falling into the water.
Another fun-filled water spot for younger kids is Luc's Splash Bash. This is located on the island (not in the water) and features a replica pirate ship complete with plenty of water cannons, water archways, and in ground geysers.
