A Titanic Comparison and Overwhelming Features

Unraveling the Monumental Cruise Ship

This 20-deck behemoth, towering above Ponce, boasts dimensions five times larger than the ill-fated Titanic.

Costing Royal Caribbean a staggering $2 billion, it’s equipped with unrivaled amenities—a food hall, six pools, and the largest at-sea water park, setting a new standard in cruise ship luxury.

Setting Sail and Unparalleled Luxury

Inaugural Voyage and Luxurious Offerings

Scheduled for its first paid voyage from Miami, Florida, the Icon of The Seas promises a seven-night Caribbean expedition, including a stop at Royal Caribbean’s private island.

With prices starting at £1,200 for a seven-night cruise, the ship’s accommodations have been in high demand, with select staterooms priced between £4,000 and £6,000.

The Ultimate in Luxury Accommodations

Opulent Suites and Unmatched Experiences

Among the accommodations, the Ultimate Family Townhouse suite stands out, spanning three decks and offering a slide for descending between floors.

With an eye-watering cost of $85,000 for a seven-night stay, this lavish suite accommodates eight, featuring a private sundeck and multiple balconies.

A Ship Years in the Making

Innovative Construction and Unprecedented Design

The ship’s creation took years, involving prototypes of its distinctive ‘neighbourhoods’ built to scale in Miami and later assembled at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland.

Featuring modular staterooms and daring construction maneuvers, like hoisting the Aquadome, the ship embodies technological marvels and luxurious design.

The Unanticipated Journey

From Finland’s Baltic Coast to Florida’s Debut

Royal Caribbean’s Chief Product Innovation Officer emphasized that their aim wasn’t solely to create the largest ship but to push boundaries in innovation.

From Finland’s Baltic coast to Florida’s debut, the Icon of The Seas stands as a testament to unparalleled engineering and luxury in the cruise ship industry.
