Icon of the Seas - The Icon of vacations
Sailing in 2024
Say hello to the future of cruising, Icon of the Seas. Talk about pushing – nah, ripping up – the envelope, this is Royal Caribbean’s most ambitious and out-there ship to date. They’ve really outdone themselves with this one, and we can’t wait to get you onboard.
Frankly, we would have loved a seat at the table when Royal Caribbean’s ship designers came up with Icon of the Seas. From the record-breaking Category 6, the largest waterpark at sea, to the Crown’s Edge, a ride that has you dangling high over the ocean, they went full kid-in-a-sweet-shop with their new ship, and we’re here for it.
It’s not all spills and thrills, though. Families will love the stay-all-day feel of new neighbourhood Surfside, while Icon’s AquaDome takes performance, mixology and dining to a bold new level, complete with a 360° ocean view. Like we said, Royal Caribbean truly threw down the flex with this one.
And since you’re bound to work up an appetite with all that surfing, swimming, climbing, skating (need we go on), Royal Caribbean have seasoned Icon with no fewer than 40 dining venues. Yep, you read right, there’s more restaurants than your hometown on here, so grab a seat at the table for casual delights and flamboyant fare, with palate-pleasing grub to suit the whole clan.
The bad news? You’ll have to wait ‘til 2024 to climb aboard Icon. Still, with umpteen other boundary-pushing ships to enjoy in the meantime, Royal Caribbean have you well covered. Stay tuned to Cruise Nation for all the latest Icon updates when they emerge on the horizon.
Royal Caribbean have revolutionised their private island - Cococay and turned it into a resort style paradise full of thrills and chills!
Key attractions of Cococay include Thrill waterpark, the Oasis lagoon, the Zip line, a 450-feet helium balloon ride and Captain Jack's dining.
BRING THE WHOLE CREW
When the kids are off the holiday is on, but not just any holiday. Swimming with turtles, exploring ancient cities, having the feeling of white sugary sand between your toes, with Royal Caribbean there really is something for everyone. And don’t think we’ve forgotten about the kids, with skydiving on top deck, dodgems after dinner or surfing the perfect wave before breakfast, there’s adventure waiting at every turn. Book your 2023/2024 holiday today with just a £99 deposit, and your 3rd and 4th guests can sail from just £129pp.
You’ll find that Bridgetown strikes a fine mix of island warmth and English heritage. Stately colonial buildings intermingle with colourful wooden homes, open-air markets and catch-of-the-day cafés. Outside of the bustle of 'Town', as the locals call it, Barbados is a new kind of paradise in every direction. Cruise to Barbados and head towards the shore for pink-and-white-sand beaches that stretch on endlessly and crystal-clear turquoise waters. Or stick to the centre of the island: you’ll find rolling hills and valleys, sugarcane fields and historic plantations. You can even travel underground to discover limestone caves with their own waterfalls.

WHY CHOOSE Royal Caribbean
Royal Caribbean Dress Code
Wondering what to wear on Royal Caribbean cruise ships? What you wear depends on the venue you’re in, but we’d recommend the following:
Casual: Keep things laid back with jeans, polos, sundresses and blouses – you’re on holiday, after all! Swimwear should only be worn in the Pool Deck, but shorts are fine at breakfast and lunch.
- Smart Casual: You’ll want to spruce things up more here. Go for collared shirts, dresses, skirts, blouses or pantsuits. Jackets, sports coats and blazers for men also make for smart additions.
- Formal: Now’s the time to really stand out. For black-tie affairs think suits, tuxedoes, cocktail dresses or evening gowns.
