Royal Caribbean International’s highly anticipated Icon of the Seas has arrived in Miami for the first time. The ship was welcomed with fanfare by air, land and sea, ahead of its official debut on January 27.
Icon arrived at PortMiami accompanied by celebratory fireboat salutes, banner planes in flight and a community celebration at Pérez Art Museum.
With its official debut less than 20 days away, Icon will continue making its final preparations in Miami ahead of an iconic naming celebration and first cruise.
Icon offers an all-encompassing lineup of experiences that combines the best of every cruise holiday – from the beach retreat to the resort escape and the theme park adventure.
Across eight neighborhoods are firsts and returning favourites including six record-breaking waterslides at Category 6 and the Crown’s Edge experience at 154 feet above the ocean, seven pools – one for every day of the week – like the first suspended infinity pool at sea.
Experiences also include a stay-all-day neighbourhood designed for families with young kids, more than 40 restaurants, bars and lounges; entertainment across air, ice, water and theatre; and more.
Starting January 27, cruisers can get away on Icon and island hop in the tropics at any time of the year.
Each 7-night Eastern or Western Caribbean adventure from Miami features idyllic destinations in the Caribbean and a day of thrill and chill at Royal Caribbean’s award-winning private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay in The Bahamas.
Guests can enjoy the island’s first adults-only escape, Hideaway Beach, an all-day experience complete with a private beach and pools, new dedicated spots for drinks and bites, exclusive cabanas, live music and more.
