No Carnival has not bought Coco Cay from Royal Caribbean. Royal Caribbean allows other cruise lines to utilize the island, for a "pretty penny" of course. That also means Royal gets ALL of the revenue the other cruise lines passengers spend too, so they benefit the most from this.

Looks like this is new. I found this blog about it; Carnival swapped stops at Key West for CoCo Cay.

Of all the islands I've cruised to, Coco Kay is my absolute favorite. I wouldn't mind if Carnival made a stop there :-)

Key West is in negotiations with the US Navy about future use of the Navy Pier which is where most of the cruise ships dock in Key West. There are rumors that the Navy is going to move some of it's training schools down to Key West and will need the pier in the future. So, Carnival and RCCL came to an agreement about using Coco Cay for some of their port stops.

And as for Wikipedia, I do not trust them as a RELIABLE source of information, since anyone can go in and edit entries. I take Wiki with a large grain of salt.

I belive RCI leases CoCo cay. With the port of Key West being shut down to only one pier CCL will chip in for CoCo cay. I would rather go to Key West then the beach JMHO.
