CONSUMER DEMAND SPARKS ROYAL CARIBBEAN TO OPEN NEW ICON OF THE SEAS VACATIONS EARLY
After Breaking All-Time Booking Records, the First-of-its-Kind Vacation is Now Open for 2025-26
Following a record-breaking response for this highly anticipated ship, Royal Caribbean International opens new Icon of the Seas vacations from Miami three months ahead of schedule.
The cruise line saw the single largest booking day and highest volume booking week in its history when Icon was first revealed in October 2022. Royal Caribbean is answering the unprecedented interest with the early release of Icon’s 2025-2026 vacations. The ship will visit top-rated private island Perfect Day at CocoCay and along with some new destinations. These include Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Vacationers can be one of the first to book starting tomorrow, Sept. 13, on Royal Caribbean’s website. Crown & Anchor Society loyalty members have special access starting today.
“Since Icon of the Seas was revealed almost a year ago, the response has been unprecedented by every measure,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “Families and friends are looking for vacations where everyone can make memories their way without compromise, and that’s what we set out to create in its best form with Icon more than five years ago. The excitement has only continued to build, making it clear that we’ve designed a revolutionary experience that reflects how consumers want to travel today and for years to come.”
