“With each new ship, we raise the bar in the travel industry while enhancing what our guests know and love,” said Jason Liberty, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean Group.
“From the moment they step on board, each experience is specially designed to give them the best holiday anywhere on land and sea. With Icon of the Seas, we have taken this to a new level and made the ultimate family holiday.”
The new vessel features adrenaline-pumping thrills, including the largest water park at sea, and unparalleled ways to relax with more ocean views and pools than ever before (one for each day of the week). It also offers guests a mix of more than 40 new and returning dining options, bars and venues, and cutting-edge entertainment.
“Icon of the Seas is the culmination of more than 50 years of delivering memorable experiences and our next bold commitment to those who love to vacation,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.
“Now more than ever, families and friends are prioritizing experiences where they can bond and enjoy their own adventures. We set out to create a holiday that does it all in one place for thrill seekers, chill enthusiasts and everyone in between, without compromise. It’s this first-of-its-kind combination that makes Icon the future of family vacations, and that future is here.”
Brand new neighbourhoods
Royal Caribbean has created five new neighborhoods for the ship, each with unique qualities. Thrill Island is home to highlights such as Category 6, the largest water park at sea, with six record-breaking slides.
