It is not possible for you to join the first journey of Royal Caribbean’s cruise ship, Icon of the Seas. The cruise operator claims that all of the spots for the first Icon of the Seas sailing from Miami, Florida, have been booked in less than a day. The vessel is praised for being the biggest cruise ship in the world.

Miami, Florida – The biggest cruise ship in the world has formally berthed at its Florida year-round residence. According to a press release from Royal Caribbean, the eagerly awaited Icon of the Seas cruise ship made her maiden port call at Port Miami on Wednesday. There were fireboat salutes, banner aircraft in the air, and a community celebration at Pérez Art Museum to mark the occasion.

When the enormous ship makes her formal debut on January 27, it will be ready to go on a 7-night Caribbean cruise for tourists.

With 20 decks and a length of 1,198 feet, the Icon of the Seas has overtaken Wonder of the Seas, which was formerly the biggest ship in the world (1,188 ft).

There are eight “neighborhoods” aboard the ship, and each one is a destination unto itself, offering a variety of distinct activities, live entertainment, and delectable food and drink options. The largest waterpark at sea, a 55-foot indoor waterfall, seven pools (one for each day of the week), and much more can be found at Icon of the Seas.
