Icon of the Seas Cruises
The Icon of the Seas, the first ship of Royal Caribbean's Icon Class, will debut in January 2024 and will be unlike any other ship that has come before it in terms of size, style, and appearance. When it debuts in the fleet in early 2024, Icon of the Seas will be the first vessel of the Icon-class built by Royal Caribbean International. With 250,800 GT, it is on track to surpass Royal Caribbean's Oasis class Wonder of the Seas as the largest cruise ship in the world by gross tonnage. Additionally, Icon of the Seas can accommodate up to 7,600 passengers, or 5,610 passengers at double occupancy. The vessel will have brand-new environmentally friendly propulsion technologies and measure 1,198 feet (365 metres) in length overall.
There will be a total of 20 decks on Icon of the Seas, 18 of which will be guest decks. Eight neighbourhoods will be present on the megaship, including five brand-new ones: The glass-covered AquaDome, which is situated on the ship's bow, is intended to provide wraparound ocean views during the day and to house the distinctive AquaTheater at night, complete with a 50-foot waterfall. This AquaTheater will be equipped with a changing pool, four robotic arms, and cutting-edge projection technology. Restaurants and bars will also be housed in the AquaDome. Read more
Thrill Island's open deck will have Category 6, a waterpark with six waterslides. These include The Frightening Bolt, a 46-foot-tall drop slide; The Hurricane Hunter, a family raft slide that can handle four rides per raft; and Storm Chasers, a twin mat-racing slide. Pressure Drop is an open free-fall slide with a 66-degree gradient. Four of the ship's seven swimming pools can be found on Chill Island, which will take up three decks in the middle of the ship. The pools are the adults-only Cloud 17, the infinity-edge Cove Pool, the adults-only Swim & Tonic, the line's first swim-up bar at sea, and Royal Bay, marketed as the largest pool at sea. Splashaway Bay and Baby Bay are two splash areas at Surfside, together with food establishments, lounge areas, a bar, a carousel, an arcade, and an adult-only lounge pool. The Hideaway has a multilevel balcony, whirlpools, a designated bar, and what Royal Caribbean claims is the first suspended infinity pool.
