Icon of the Seas is the world's largest cruise ship, 365 meters long, with a capacity of more than 5,500 passengers and 2,000 crew members. At the end of October, the ship, which was built in Finland, passed the last round of sea trials.

This was reported by the Orlando Sentinel. Icon of the Seas went out into the open ocean to check the serviceability of existing parts and the operation of engines.

Representatives of Royal Caribbean International, the company behind the creation of Icon of the Seas, said that their "first of its kind" ship is five times larger than the ill-fated Titanic. It will set sail on its maiden voyage in the Caribbean on January 27, 2024. The cruise will last 7 nights and the starting point will be Miami.

A perfect place to relax

The ship will offer more than forty ways to dine, drink and be entertained, many of which are included in the cruise fare. The 20 decks are designed to meet the needs of every type of vacationer, from areas for young families to adult-only entertainment such as the Royal Caribbean International Piano Bar.
