Icon of the Seas Entertainment

Royal Caribbean International is all set to unveil its most ambitious cruise ship yet, the Icon of the Seas, with a revolutionary lineup of entertainment experiences. The highly anticipated debut, scheduled for January 2024, promises to redefine the vacation experience for travelers of all ages.

Icon of the Seas will feature an impressive array of entertainment offerings across four signature "stages" - air, ice, water, and theater - accompanied by more live music and comedy than ever before. Developed in-house by Royal Caribbean, known as the largest producer of live entertainment in the world, these productions will come to life day and night, ensuring a memorable vacation experience for every type of family and traveler.

According to Nick Weir, Senior Vice President of Entertainment at Royal Caribbean International, "At the heart of so many of the memories made on Royal Caribbean vacations is a combination of live entertainment that’s unmatched in the vacation industry, and we’re taking it to the next level on Icon of the Seas. If you’re a fan of full-scale productions on Broadway and the West End or live music and comedy in hot spots like Las Vegas, Icon has it all for every mood and style in one vacation – alongside never-before-seen twists only found on Royal Caribbean.”
