Royal Caribbean International has signed an agreement with the government of Antigua and Barbuda to build a Royal Beach Club, a new private destination concept for the cruise line, on the island of Antigua.
Set to break ground later in 2020, the Royal Beach Club at Antigua will be situated along more than a half-mile of pristine beach, offering Royal Caribbean passengers private cabanas, pool with swim-up bar, regional food offerings, island BBQs, and active pursuits like jet skis, paddle boarding, snorkeling, and a splash pad for families.
“The Royal Beach Club will deliver a memorable beach day to our guests,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “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. In addition, we are looking at ways for the local community to also enjoy the beach club on days our ships are in other destinations.”
In addition, Royal Caribbean will bring Symphony of the Seas to Antigua in November 2020, docking at a new port in St. John. Symphony of the Seas will be the first Oasis-class ship to dock in Antigua.
“The government of Antigua and Barbuda is truly grateful and appreciative that Royal Caribbean’s first Royal Beach Club will be in Antigua, which confirms confidence in our twin island state,” the Honorable Charles Fernandez, Minister of Tourism, Economic Development and Investments, Government of Antigua and Barbuda, said. “We are also excited to share our beautiful island with guests sailing aboard Royal Caribbean ships when they begin calling to the island later this year.”
