    Royal Caribbean Welcomes Lionel Messi

    It seems like yesterday when the Royal Caribbean announced that two Icons were going to team up to kick off 2024.

    To refresh your memory, we are talking about Icon of the Seas and the worldwide soccer superstar Lionel "GOAT" Messi, who was going to become the official Godfather of this wonderful ship. Guess what? It was just last month that this honor finally became official.

    Celebration aboard Royal Caribbean

    On January 25th, 2024 the official naming celebration took place, allowing the soccer star and one of the most well-known cruise lines to finally debut one of the most innovative and anticipated ships of all time.

    This special moment took place in Miami, Lionel Messi’s hometown for the moment. They were surrounded by A-list guests including the Inter Miami CF, Meyer Turku shipyard, and the Emmy Award-winning (four-time) host Mario Lopez. How impressive, right?

    It was no surprise that Royal Caribbean went all out with the naming ceremony. This took place a few days after Royal Caribbean International’s 55th anniversary

    It was the perfect way to honor and commemorate the many years of hard work and innovation that the company has been putting in every single ship and service that is offered to their beloved clients. This also explains why Royal Caribbean is often regarded as one of the best cruise lines in the world.

    Family vacations come first

    As we know, Lionel Messi is not only a great soccer player and the Icon of the Seas Godfather, but he is also a Father and head of the family for several years now. 

    We can only imagine that he will have lots of fun aboard this modern new cruise, and experience a great family vacation. Well, as long as he buys an entire itinerary for him and friends only, can you imagine if Lionel Messi stepped out in the middle of the public in a regular cruise?

    In his own words, he said; “Family is everything to me, and it was exciting to take part in welcoming what is the world’s best family vacation to Miami,” he also assured; "Everything I’ve seen on Icon of the Seas is next level. There are experiences for the whole family to make memories that they’ll remember forever.”
