Last week, Royal Caribbean finally released details on a new cruise ship that will be the largest in the world when it debuts in early 2024, Icon of the Seas.
When Royal Caribbean opened cruises for bookings on Icon of the Seas earlier this week, the cruise line had their highest booking day ever in their 53 year history.
Icon of the Seas will sail year-round, week long Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises from Miami. Every voyage will visit the cruise line’s top-rated private island destination, Perfect Day at CocoCay, The Bahamas, and a mix of destinations like Cozumel, Mexico; Philipsburg, St. Maarten; and Basseterre, St. Kitts.
The ultimate family vacation features an all-encompassing lineup of firsts and next-level favorites across eight neighborhoods, making it the perfect getaway for adults and parents, kids and grandparents alike. Between the adrenaline-pumping thrills at the new Thrill Island and unrivaled ways to chill at neighborhoods like the new Chill Island and the luxurious four-level Suite Neighborhood, vacationers bonding with their families or getting away with friends will have all the ways stay and play their way.
With 28 room categories that range from standard rooms to suites and new layouts for families of three, four, five, six and more, even the accommodations on Icon of the Seas are thoughtfully designed for every type of vacationer – and there are more choices, ocean views and room than ever before.
“The enthusiasm and excitement for Icon are undeniable in more ways than one,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “The incredible response we have received from our loyal guests, vacationers new to cruising, crew members and travel partners continues to come in, and this is just the beginning. We can’t wait to share more of what Icon has in store in the coming months.”
