We have some wonderful news for you! We welcomed our first 96 baby turtles to the world at The Royal Caribbean on Wednesday, July 6. Royal Resorts members and guests helped our security staff release them and then watched as they scuttled towards the waves to begin life at sea. We wish them Godspeed and hope that in 15 years they may return to the beach to lay their own eggs.

As the turtle nesting season stands so far, it has been a record-breaking couple of months at Royal Resorts. We are delighted to announce that as of July 12, there are now 121 nests in the enclosure at The Royal Caribbean and a total of 15,729 eggs. The tally at The Royal Sands stands at 80 nests and 9,597 eggs.

Stay posted for more turtle news during the season.
