Royal Caribbean International and the government of Antigua and Barbuda, along with the assistance of the Consulate General of Antigua and Barbuda, have signed an agreement for the company’s first Royal Beach Club.
The agreement marks the start of the planning and development for the Royal Beach Club scheduled to break ground later this year. Created exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests, the club at Antigua will boast more than a half-a-mile of beachfront.
The beach club experience will offer guests great views from private cabanas and a pool with a swim-up bar, complemented by locally inspired experiences. It features regional fare, island-style barbecues, live music, along with thrills such as jet skis, paddle boarding, snorkelling and a family splash pad.
Michael Bayley, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International said: “The Royal Beach Club will deliver a memorable beach day to our guests. Together with the government of Antigua and Barbuda, we will bring to life an experience that will bring more visitors to these idyllic islands and create significant economic benefits and opportunities.”
The cruise line has also committed to bringing Symphony of the Seas to the island nation with a call on 3 November 2020. Docking at a new port at the island capital of St. John’s, it will be the first Oasis class ship to visit the island.
