    Captain Henrik Loy, a seasoned mariner with over 25 years at Royal Caribbean, here are Captain Henrik's top recommendations for making the most of your journey on the groundbreaking Icon of the Seas because who would recommend you the best things if not the Main Captain? 

    1. Dive into the New

    As far as we know, captain Henrik describes Icon as a "completely new class of ship with many new features and innovations." The captain has been actively involved in overseeing the ship's construction, ensuring the best processes for inspections, training, and upcoming sea trials.

    2. Explore Eight Signature Neighborhoods


    Icon introduces eight distinct neighborhoods, each offering a unique blend of restaurants, entertainment, activities, and more. 

    3. Thrills and Chills at Thrill Island

    A lost island? Thrill Island is one adventure and a brand new neighborhood, home to the largest waterpark at sea. 

    4. Tranquil Oasis at AquaDome


    Just at the top of this marvelous ship, the AquaDome is a spectacular transformational neighborhood with 220-degree ocean views.

    5. Family Friendly Surfside


    Surfside is Royal Caribbean's first neighborhood designed for young families. It boasts aquaparks, a beach themed carousel, an arcade, and family friendly dining options.


    BUT GUESS WHAT? New family staterooms and suites, including the three-story Ultimate Family Townhouse, provide convenient accommodations.

    6. Perfect Day at CocoCay

    Captain Henrik is a FAN of spending time on Perfect Day at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean's private island in The Bahamas.
