Royal Caribbean Unveils Icon of the Seas! What do you think?


Recommended Posts

So the big news today is that Royal Caribbean finally unveiled Icon of the Seas. Just wondering what everyone thinks of the new class vessel? By the way, she will be 250,800 gross tons, making her the largest cruise ship in the world, when she debuts.

I was stoked for the Wonder, and even more excited for Icon! The new neighborhoods look intriguing. I'm really interested in the new adults only areas as the Solarium is one of my favorite places on Harmony and Symphony. I remember seeing the Symphony in person the first time and blown away by the size. I think with 20 decks and the decks going all the way to end of the ship, this one is going to feel even more massive!

That is a beautiful ship.  FlowRider is my favorite, the line is always long but it is all worth it.  That water slide sure looks amazing.  I always loved RCCL, it truly is a family cruise.  I first brought my daughter along on  RCCL, she was probably too young, and I was carrying her on my hips wherever.  She probably can feel the movement of the ship and does not want to walk at all.  She loved the pool and the slide and the ice cream of course.  We'll most likely go on another.  This Icon of the Seas looks amazing.

We have not been on any of the super duper extra large overweight cruise ships yet. The largest Royal ship we have been on is the Grandeur. The largest ship overall we have sailed is Celebrity Edge. We prefer the smaller vessels but will get on one of these massive ships one day.

Someone will be on these massive ships and share their story and experience here.  The Icon looks truly amazing and sure looks fun on video.  I am really hoping for a generally positive review/experience.

Different boats for different folks!  Families with teens/preteens will love the icon. Old people like me not so much. But at some point I will get on at least an Oasis class ship to give it a whirl.
