A new beach experience is on deck for Royal Caribbean International. The cruise giant just announced the expansion of its destination lineup with the Royal Beach Club Cozumel, opening in 2026 along the isle’s western coast.

“We are delighted to build on our longstanding partnership with the local community and government to continue bringing our guests to Mexico,” said Jason Liberty, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean Group, during a media announcement. “The expansion of our destination offerings aligns with the growing global demand for the ultimate vacation experiences and enables our guests to connect with the beauty of local cultures and people in the places they visit.”

Royal Beach Club Cozumel: the Ultimate Beach Day

Featuring striking beaches, views and pools for every vibe, Royal Beach Club Cozumel aims to create the ultimate beach day in Mexico, complete with swim-up bars, dedicated pools for relaxation enthusiasts and families, private cabanas, snorkeling, kayaking and more—or less, for those who just want to kick back. And for a taste of Mexico and quintessential beach day favorites, coming to the table will be a variety of dining spots like a restaurant, bar and lounge with views—and flavors—for days and a street market as well as hands-on experiences like tequila tastings and cooking classes.

The new beach club experience is the latest in the cruise line’s growing lineup of destinations, which includes the top-rated Perfect Day at CocoCay, The Bahamas, that set the bar for private islands after a $250 million transformation in 2019. From ongoing expansions to the island—like the newly opened adults-only Hideaway Beach—to the Royal Beach Club Collection, Royal Caribbean has set the stage for vacationers to create their perfect vacation day in more ways than one in The Bahamas and the eastern and western Caribbean.

More details about Royal Beach Club Cozumel will be announced in the coming months. The Royal Beach Club Collection also includes Royal Beach Club Paradise Island, a 17-acre Bahamian beach experience located on Nassau’s Paradise Island, opening in 2025.
