Grown & Sexy makes history once again!  We will be the first and only large group to sail on the Icon of the Seas for the first 6 months when the ship is released. The ship will first set sail with guests on January 28th, 2024, so we will be on the ship's 3rd sailing. When completed, the Icon of the Seas will be 20 decks high and 1,198 feet long and measure 250,800 gross tons.

Here are some of the areas you will find onboard the Icon of the Seas.


Replacing the Solarium at the front of the ship, Icon of the Seas will have an AquaDome area. It AquaTheater from the Oasis Class ships has now been moved indoors.  The shows here will feature aerialists, acrobatics, high dives, and the tallest waterfall at sea (55 feet tall). This will be a multipurpose space with huge floor-to-ceiling windows, offering 220-degree views where guests can hang out during the day and get a bite to eat and enjoy the views and waterfall. 


Central Park

What if someone told you that there was a park on a cruise ship and that park had over 11,000 plants? Would you believe it? Central Park is exactly that. In addition to the many trees, flowers and plants, you'll also find restaurants and shops. Stroll through the beautiful park while grabbing a bite to eat or window shopping. The park even boasts a dedicated team of horticulturists! They maintain 100+ species of plants and over 2,200 sub-tropical species throughout the ship.  Unique to the Icon is Central Park's location which rather then being in the middle of the ship, will offer ocean views.  Central Park will also feature a dedicated entertainment venue and Izumi, the company’s sushi and hibachi restaurant will be in its biggest-ever form in Izumi on the Park. Guests can dine in, and there will also be a takeout window for a bento-box-style experience.

Chill Island

Introducing Chill Island on Royal Caribbean's Icon of the Seas. Four of the seven pools on board are in this three-deck slice of paradise.

The lineup also includes Cloud 17, an adults-only retreat, and the serene, infinity-edge Cove Pool. Plus, The Lime & Coconut returns with four locations, including the brand's first frozen cocktail bar.
