Cruising in Style
Today we take a grand look at Royal Caribbean Cruise Line and some of the areas it breaks through the mold and shows up ready to impress. To start here is a look at their newest ship. It sets sail January 27, 2024 and is the largest cruise ship to hit the seas to date. In late January she will hit the seas with 7,600 guests at maximum capacity with a total of 10,000 people on board once you count crew. This ship is a vast 20 decks high and 1,198 feet long. This might be hard to even wrap your mind around, so a quick comparison would be with some of the largest freighters in the great lakes being just over 1,000 feet in length. You might even be surprised to learn, this ship wouldn't fit in the locks of the great lakes because she is TOO LONG. To put all of this in simpler terms/words, this ship is massive. Not only is it large but it packs a punch full of fun. Their Thrill Island is a Category 6 waterpark making it the largest water park at sea with 6 record breaking slides. If slides aren't your thing, don't worry this ship has 7 unique pools as well as 9 whirl pools, all with deluxe ocean views of course! There is even a suspended pool that lets you connect with the ocean in a different sort of way. That's right, you heard me, suspended pool. Don't worry if you aren't one to get in and swim there is still plenty to entertain. Their Aqua Dome performances filled with lighting, ocean views, and stunts of bravery are sure to have you on the edge of your seat. How can that still not be all, but before we jump into all these ships have to offer, lets take a look at just how vast this playground of the sea truly is.
One thing Royal Caribbean is known for is the ability to entertain at every age! Here is a look at some of the other activities you will see on the Icon of the Seas as well as some from the cruiseline's other ships! So many activities to entertain like: Ice Skating, Movies, Carousels, Central Park Areas, Laser Tag, Mini Golf, RipCord by iFly, Karaoke, Rock-Climbing Walls, Escape Rooms, Running/Jogging Tracks, Sports Courts, Zip Lines, Spas, Sky Pads, Solariums, Swim-up Bars, and so much more.
How about a private Island that rakes in the accolades? Perfect Day at CocoCay is Royal Caribbean's private island in the Bahamas filled with even more slides, bays, islands, ziplines, wave pools, and perfect oasis to relax with the whole family. This private island is visited by almost all of the Florida Ports like Miami, Port Canaveral (Orlando), and Fort Lauderdale and a few of the cruises out of Tampa (FL) & Galveston (TX). Obviously there are more cruises than we could list with destinations all over the world on different class ships.
