Royal Caribbean’s CocoCay is welcoming visitors again after the devastation of Hurricane Dorian. Sara Macefield paid a visit before the hurricane hit
“Come on, Mum – don’t be such a wimp.” My 16-year-old twin daughters, Dani and Holly, are full of bravado, whereas I’m desperately trying to forget that I’m at the top of the towering 41-metre Daredevil’s Tower waterslide, the tallest in North America.
As screams ring out from riders plummeting down the tube, my nerves fail me and, much to my daughters’ embarrassment, I make my excuses and scuttle back down the stairs as they take the plunge.
But I know I’ll never live it down if I don’t attempt at least some of the hair-raising rides at the much-lauded Perfect Day at CocoCay resort – Royal Caribbean International’s private island in the Bahamas, which reopened on 7 September following Hurricane Dorian (I was here visiting before it hit).
