Royal Caribbean Introduces Icon of the Seas

COURTESY Royal Caribbean – Introducing the new Icon of the Seas — a first-of-its-kind Royal Caribbean® adventure. Push the limits of your imagination with the all new AquaDome — with awe-inspiring screens, robotics, and a dynamic water fall. Catch Olympic-sized feats on ice during downtime at Absolute Zero, the largest ice-skating arena in our fleet. Your night is just beginning at the reimagined Royal Promenade, where every night is a bar crawl, and the music is always rocking. The options are endless on Icon of the Seas — sailing from Miami, Florida early 2024*.

EVERYTHING BUT THE EXPECTED

Technology and artistry merge on the new Icon of the Seas.

Perched at the crown of the ship, the shimmering AquaDome is a first-of-its-kind space that opens up a world of possibilities. From performances that push the bounds of bravery beneath a towering water fall to gourmet grazing and mixology magic against a background of wraparound ocean views. And bold feats abound at Absolute Zero, our biggest ice arena ever, where high-resolution digital projections from ceiling to rink instantly transform everything around you from one moment to the next.

POOL HOP NONSTOP

Save room for some extra splash — the new Icon of the Seas has an all-you-can-swim buffet of pools.

Take your pick of seven different pools, plus nine whirlpools, all with next-level ocean views. Like The Hideaway, the first suspended pool at sea, buzzing with beach club beats high in the sky. Cloud 17 is an adults-only poolside oasis in a new stratosphere of chic. Find frozen cocktails on tap at The Lime and Coconut® bar, spanning multiple levels, or dive in and order up at the largest swim-up bar at sea, Swim & Tonic. It’s your day your way — and you’ll soak up every minute.

MORE ROOM FOR AWESOME

On Icon of the Seas, where you stay is as incredible as how you play.

Our newest ship offers some of the most spacious rooms we’ve ever designed — with new categories that dial up the comfort and the innovation. Push a button to invite the sea breeze in — new Infinite Balcony rooms transform your living space into an extended oceanside escape. Or upgrade to upscale from a selection of elevated accommodations, including Panoramic Suites and Infinite Grand Suites. And the view doesn’t get any better than from Sunset Corner Suites, with wrap-around balconies and endless blue in all directions.

UPSCALE ON A NEW SCALE

Luxury is anything but boring in Royal Suite Class — and we just took it to plush new levels.

Discover the Suite Neighborhood, a retreat with indulgences exclusively for suite guests. Soak up rays on the two-story sun deck or take a tranquil dip in the private pool and hot tub. Savor upscale cuisine at two restaurants for suite guests only — the casual elegance of Coastal Kitchen or al fresco Mediterranean bliss at The Grove. And at the Suite Lounge, enjoy bites and cocktails over jaw-dropping views right into the heart of the revolutionary AquaDome. It’s time to find out just how suite life can be.

DIAL UP THE DARING

Take the best-ever experience and crank it up — all the way up. This is a whole new class of adventure.

Brave six record-breaking slides at Category 6, the largest waterpark at sea. Conquer your fears at the Crown’s Edge, a test of bravery suspended high above the ocean. And bond under the sun at Surfside, an entire neighborhood that opens the floodgates on splash-making fun.

GO AHEAD AND PLAY FAVORITES

The new Icon of the Seas wouldn’t be complete without all the fleet favorites that make Royal Caribbean® the best destination on the planet.

Now, 50 years’ worth of memory-maxing experiences have become their boldest versions yet. Perfect your pop-up on the FlowRider® surf simulator. Race to the summit of Adrenaline Peak — the ultimate rock-climbing expedition. Get in on a pick-up game at the Sports Court. And pair up for putts at a totally reimagined mini-golf course — where firing up friendly competition is par for the course. Bolder bonding is back by popular demand.
