Soon, the World’s Largest Cruise Ship Will Embark on its Maiden Voyage

The world’s largest cruise ship has completed construction at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland. The ship is currently undergoing testing and is expected to be ready for passengers to board in early 2024.

The Icon of the Seas

The Icon of the Seas is the largest cruise ship ever built, surpassing the Wonder of the Seas. It measures 365 meters in length and weighs over 250,000 tons. The ship, which will sail for Royal Caribbean, has a capacity for more than 5,600 passengers and 2,350 crew members.

According to Royal Caribbean CEO Michael Bayley, the ship is scheduled to join the company’s fleet in October and will begin its maiden voyage in the Caribbean in January 2024.

Welcome Aboard

The Icon of the Seas will feature the world’s largest water park on any cruise ship. It will have six mega water slides, seven large swimming pools, and nine hot tubs to accommodate all passengers.

Additionally, there will be a wide variety of dining options and eight different “neighborhoods” spread across the ship’s 20 decks. Advanced sales for the ship’s debut have already broken records at Royal Caribbean.

The seven-night packages offered by the Icon of the Seas include tours of Royal Caribbean’s private island in Coco Cay and the new expansion area at Hideaway Beach. According to CEO Michael Bayley, this ship will provide the ultimate family vacation experience at sea.

LNG-Powered Cruise Ship

The Icon of the Seas represents a significant milestone in Royal Caribbean International’s 50-year history. It is the company’s first ship to be powered by liquefied natural gas and fuel cell technology, reflecting the company’s commitment to clean energy.
