Become An Icon
Become an Icon, with Royal Caribbean. Icon Of The Seas, will be the first of Royal Caribbean’s Icon Class ships when she launches next year. Here at Cruise 365, we are so excited to see the development of Icon Of The Seas as we are promised it is going to be a ‘game changer’ for the industry.
The new class of ship was announced late in 2016 and is currently under construction at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland. Since it is the first ship of its class, we don’t have many details as of yet, however once we know, you will know!
April 2021, Royal Caribbean International President and CEO Michael Bayley talked briefly about the new ship, “We have the brand new Icon class coming, which is going to be a real game changer.” With an estimated 5,600 passengers, and 200,000 gross tons in size, Icon is set to be larger than the Quantum size ships, yet smaller than the Oasis class.
In January 2022, a large pearl shaped object was spotted in the shipyard, which sparked curiosity amongst cruise fans. Whilst it is unclear what this is going to be, we are all loving to guess in the office.
Further details of Icon Of The Seas are set to be announced soon, so keep your eyes peeled as we update you through our weekly breaking news.
