Well, if you thought the 'Wonder of the Seas' was the biggest cruise ship... think again! On Wednesday 12th July 2023, the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line announced their newest and biggest cruise ship on Chanel Tens 'The Project' TV Show. My mouth dropped, and I responded with 'Oh wow' when Sarah Harris said, "and the award for the 'Biggest Cruise Ship in the world' goes to...? Royal Caribbean for their newest and BIGGEST cruise ship 'Icon of the Seas.' I naturally got cruise happy when footage of the new flag ship appeared on my TV screen, and the exciting news is 'the NEW Icon of the Seas cruise ship will be sailing in Australian Waters in January 2024 so get ready to set sail.
It's time to make waves with Royal Caribbean:
Brace yourself for a Category 6 class cruise ship, and the largest waterpark at sea with six record-breaking slides. Like the Frightening Bolt, the tallest waterslide to sail.
