The Royal Caribbean Group has planned to bring a new era of cruising with the unique fleet of the three largest cruise ships with brand new Icon Class. The first one for the lineup was Icon of the Seas- which has been lauded for its unique and class offerings.

Icon of the Seas started its maiden voyage from Miami and sailed around Caribbean countries such as St Kitts and Nevis, St Thomas, and the Bahamas in January 2024. The ship returned to Miami in Feb 2024 while completing its first voyage after its debut.

The travellers who embarked on their first journey on the vessel shared their experiences and said that the eight neighbourhoods, 20 decks, and other amenities enhanced their travel experience.

Netizens reacted to the arrival of the 2025 edition of the Icon Class and said that the ship will add another layer of authenticity to the fleet of the Royal Caribbean’s offerings.

One commented,” Great pics!! Having been on Icon I can totally picture what will be around the Pearl in these pics.”

Another added, ”Icon of the Seas was amazing, so I am looking forward to the second fleet of the Royal Caribbean. I am sure that the offerings of the vessel will be great.”

Besides this, the third ship that will join the Icon Class ship fleet of the Royal Caribbean is still unnamed and expected to arrive in 2026. The order for the ship has been placed and the group has asked for the suggestions of the names.

Netizens suggested names and said that these three ships have been changing demographics for the Royal Caribbean. One stated,” I’d like to see them begin to bring back some of the original names – specifically Sovereign of the Seas.”

Another mentioned,” Enterprise of the Seas. Not sure if they can fit the on the ship’s bow.”
