Icon of the Seas will boast 8 “neighborhoods” according to Fox 13. Like most cruise ships, there’s live entertainment and lots of food. But there are quite a few things that will set this ship apart. Thrill Island will be the largest waterpark at sea with 6 slides. The most talked about part of the design can be spotted from the outside. “AquaDome” is near the front of the ship. It’s an enormous “oasis by day” and a spot for a night out too… which restaurants, bars and aqua shows.
It has 20 decks. It’s almost a quarter mile long. It has the largest waterpark at sea and a 55 foot indoor waterfall. And it’s going to make its first voyages from here in Florida. And now you can take a look inside. Royal Carribbean has just released video showing off the Icon of the Seas.
The Points Guy blog says Icon of the Seas will accommodate about 10,000 people on board – about 7600 guests and the rest crew members. Reservations open Tuesday. But be patient. The first sailing won’t happen until January of 2024. They say two more ships like this are on the way. [Sources: The Points Guy, Fox 13]
