Royal Caribbean is opening up week long cruises on Icon of the Seas in 2025-2026 for bookings three months earlier than expected.

These new cruises will open for bookings on September 13, 2023. However, Crown & Anchor Society members will have special access to these cruises 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.”
