Royal Caribbean’s upcoming flagship, Icon of the Seas, successfully passed its final set of sea trials, marking an important milestone before its inaugural trip in January 2024.

The vessel’s directional and technical systems and engines were tested rigorously.

While most of the vessels are introducing LNG fuel as a sustainable choice, Icon of the Seas marked history using Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as its major fuel source for the first time.

Signifying a major step towards much more environmentally friendly cruise travel.

Icon of the Seas is meticulously designed to reduce emissions, which will significantly improve the quality of air and help in reversing the side effects of Global warming.

It has a length of 365 meters and the capability of carrying 7,000 passengers pax on 18 decks.

This initiative has been processed to make it different and unique from regular vessels and contribute to nature using innovative fuel technologies.

Icon of the Seas is all set to depart on its first trip from Port Miami on 27th Jan 2024.

Its year-long excursions are from Eastern and Western Caribbean, including trips to Royal Caribbean’s private island, ‘Perfect Day at CocoCay.’

With this, the massive giant also offers state-of-the-art facilities, including a waterpark with six waterslides, seven pools, and a waste-to-energy plant, giving visitors top-notch hospitality.
