Icon of the Seas
Royal Caribbean International has commissioned MEYER TURKU with the construction of three new ocean liners. The first – the lead ship in the Icon Class – was constructed in Finland with yard number NB 1400. The Icon of the Seas was delivered to the shipping company in December 2023.
This new series of ships consists of three luxury liners, each with a tonnage of around 250,800 GT and enough room for up to 5,610 passengers. This means the cruise ships in the Icon Class will be a similar size to those previously delivered to the shipping company. But all three luxury liners will feature completely new propulsion technology – their eco-friendly LNG drive system will ensure a significant reduction in emissions.
The second cruise ship in this class - Star of the Seas - will be delivered in 2025, and the third will follow in 2026.
