Royal Caribbean International announced that its Icon of the
Seas ship would boast an unmatched lineup of dining experiences designed for
every type of passenger, starting in January 2024.
Icon of the Seas and its new and returning restaurants will
sail seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean vacations from Miami year-round
and visit destinations like The Bahamas, Philipsburg, St. Maarten; Cozumel,
Mexico; and Roatan, Honduras.
“The experiences had over great food are at the heart of so
many shared memories that we could all use more of in our day-to-day,” Royal
Caribbean vice president Linken D’Souza said. “We’ve designed Icon of the Seas
to offer every guest, no matter their tastes, age and mood or the occasion, a
variety of ways they can easily make those moments their way every day while on
Royal Caribbean is adding more elevated dining experiences,
including a taste of New York at Empire Supper Club, a VIP experience at Celebration
Table and returning favorites, like Central Park’s American steakhouse, Chops
Grille and Trellis Bar.
For passengers grabbing a quick bite, travelers can enjoy an
array of food day or night at AquaDome Market, Izumi in the Park, The Pearl
Cafe, Basecamp, The Grove and returning favorites like Central Park’s Park Cafe,
Chill Island and Royal Promenade.
In addition, Icon of the Seas will add family and kid-approved
eats, such as the Surfside Eatery, Pier 7, Surfside Bites and several returning
favorites, like Izumi, Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade and Sprinkles.
“If vacationers want to stick to their favorites, like kids
and their chicken tenders, or mix it up every night and try new flavors, more
than 20 experiences across Icon’s eight neighborhoods make that possible –
without compromise – more than ever,” D’Souza continued.
The lineup of new and returning favorites join the recently
announced bars and nightlife that will light up the massive ship, including
spots for families like The Lemon Post in Surfside, with a menu for adults and
another for kids and Dueling Pianos in Royal Promenade, the cruise line’s first
dueling pianos bar.
