The World’s Largest Cruise Ship Is Ready For Her January 2024 Launch

Royal Caribbean’s floating city has been filmed out on the open water for the first time since she underwent sea trials ahead of her January 2024 launch. At 1,198 feet long and weighing 250,800 tons, Icon of the Seas is the world’s largest cruise ship. Among the ship’s standout features is the first suspended infinity pool at sea and a 3-story family suite. Able to accommodate 7,600 guests, the ship even has its own “crew neighborhood” spread over 4 decks for the 2,350 crew members onboard. Royal Caribbean describes the oceanliner as a “tranquil oasis by day” and a “vibrant place for night life after dark.” The vessel is debuting in Miami and will sail 7-night Caribbean voyages throughout 2024.
