While Royal Caribbean has long been celebrated as a fantastic cruise line for families, the Icon of the Seas takes it a step further by being coined as the "ultimate family vacation." However, despite this claim, there's more to the world’s largest ship than just family-friendly features.
Designed with adults in mind, the Icon of the Seas introduces a new era of luxury and entertainment for travelers. It seamlessly blends the family appeal that Royal Caribbean is renowned for with exclusive amenities tailored for adults seeking an enjoyable and carefree experience.
Some of the Sojourney Travel team recently embarked on an exclusive trade and media inaugural sailing on the Icon of the Seas. Here are the standout features they noticed about the new ship:
The Icon of the Seas has some of the most luxurious lodging at sea. With 28 different types of rooms, there is sure to be one that suits your needs. While this ship does offer townhome style rooms that are more suitable for families, it also offers romantic sunset suites that give you a gorgeous view of a cascading sunset over the water each night. Many of these rooms were designed with relaxation and romance in mind so that you can properly wind down after a day of fun.
Entertainment and Nightlife
Don’t get too cozy in your relaxing stateroom. As the sun sets, the night comes alive on Icon of the Seas. This ship features more than 15 vibrant spots and live music venues, and each night on board offers a wide variety of ways to elevate your experience – from cocktails to captivating performances.
The Hideaway Neighborhood
The Hideaway Neighborhood is a section of the ship that is exclusive to adult guests. If adults-only wasn’t a good enough reason to check it out – this area also boasts the first ever suspended infinity pool at sea. In addition to the pool, The Hideaway offers a wraparound bar that is perfect for socializing and sipping on your favorite beverage as you take in the stunning ocean views. Whether you want to enjoy the sunset, swim in the pool, or sip a fruity drink – The Hideaway offers a perfect escape to do so.
Alongside the many adults-only spots on board the ship, Royal Caribbean’s private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay, has also opened an adults’ only spot, dubbed Hideaway Beach. Hideaway Beach offers swim up bars, private cabanas, great food, and live DJ music. Regardless of what your vacation style is – Hideaway Beach has something for every type of adult traveler.
Overall, this ship could be the perfect option for travelers with adults-only in mind, despite the cruise being family friendly.
