Unveiling the World's Largest Cruise Vessel: Royal Caribbean's Icon of the Seas

Get ready to set sail in early 2024 as Royal Caribbean International's highly anticipated "Icon of the Seas" prepares to make its debut. This remarkable cruise ship, weighing approximately 250,000 gross tons, features an array of luxurious amenities, including a spectacular water park, numerous dining options, and seven pools.

What sets it apart is that it will be Royal Caribbean's first vessel powered by clean energy.

The Icon of the Seas will offer guests an unforgettable experience, featuring the world's largest water park at sea, known as Category 6. With six water slides and over 40 dining and entertainment options, the ship promises to provide a resort-style getaway, complete with a theme park and beach escape.

The highlight is the Ultimate Family Townhouse, a three-story accommodation with exciting features such as an in-suite slide and a karaoke station.

Thrilling Experiences: Spanning 20 decks, the Icon of the Seas will feature Royal Caribbean's first-ever dueling piano bar, eight neighborhoods, and an impressive pool.

Thrill-seekers will be captivated by Crown's Edge, an exhilarating attraction combining a skywalk, thrill ride, and ropes course. This one-of-a-kind ship is designed to offer adventure and excitement for all guests.

The ship underwent rigorous testing, involving over 2,000 experts who spent four days assessing the main engines, propellers, bow, noise levels, and vibrations. More than 450 specialists were involved in this crucial step, which included extensive preparations and over 350 hours of work.

Royal Caribbean International considers the Icon of the Seas the pinnacle of its evolutionary journey, incorporating cutting-edge technology and building on 50 years of expertise and experience.

Setting sail from Miami, the Icon of the Seas will embark on seven-night Western and Eastern Caribbean vacations throughout the year.

Guests will have the opportunity to visit tropical destinations such as the Bahamas, Mexico, Honduras, St. Maarten, and Royal Caribbean's private island, CocoCay.
