A new age of vacations begins here. Royal Caribbean International has released the first images of the highly awaited Icon of the Seas, the Icon of Vacations. The first Icon Class ship will arrive in late 2023, ahead of its January 2024 debut, and will represent the tourism industry’s first-of-its-kind blend of the finest of every holiday.

With Icon, any kind of family and adventurer may enjoy their vision of the perfect family holiday, from the beach getaway to the resort escape and the theme park adventure. On Tuesday, October 25, vacationers may book their classic journey on Royal Caribbean’s website. Crown & Anchor loyalty members may expect exclusive access on Monday, Oct. 24.

We raise the standard in the travel industry with each new ship while improving on what our guests already know and enjoy. “From the time guests come aboard, every experience is tailored to provide them with the finest holiday possible, both on land and at sea.” We’ve taken this to the next level with Icon of the Seas, creating the perfect family holiday.”

Whether “family vacation” means traveling away as a family, couple, or group of friends, Icon’s all-encompassing roster has something for everyone, including firsts and next-level favorites. There are adrenaline-pumping thrills, including the largest waterpark at sea, and unrivaled ways to relax, including more ocean views and pools – one for each day of the week – than ever before, as well as a mix of more than 40 new and returning dining, bar and nightlife options, and cutting-edge entertainment.

“Icon of the Seas is the result of more than 50 years of delivering unique experiences and our next bold commitment to individuals who love to travel,” said Michael Bayley, president, and CEO of Royal Caribbean International. “Families and friends are valuing events where they may bond and enjoy their journeys more than ever before.”

We set out to build a holiday that provides all of that in one location for adrenaline seekers, chill enthusiasts, and everyone in between, without compromising. This one-of-a-kind mix makes Icon the future of family holidays, and that future has arrived.”

Royal Caribbean unveils the first glimpse at eight districts that come alive at night, featuring five brand-new excursions and three bold, returning favorites. Each one is a destination in and of itself, offering a variety of events, live entertainment, and places to eat and drink, allowing everyone to create memories their way every day.
