10 Reasons to Sail the Icon of the Seas

As our S2T travelers know, we just came back from our very first S2T VIP Cruise! We had twenty-three guests sail on a brand new ship, Icon of the Seas! We were SO impressed with this ship that we had to share more information about it to all our Star Travelers!

The Icon of the Seas, the newest addition to the Royal Caribbean fleet, promises a state-of-the-art cruise ship that redefines luxury and enhances the cruising experience! We can say that this ship does all that and more!!!

Constructed at the renowned Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, this marvel of engineering took shape over several years, culminating in its maiden voyage in 2023. Since its inaugural journey, the Icon of the Seas has visited many cruise ports around the globe, delighting passengers with unforgettable experiences at sea. From the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean to the rugged coastlines of Alaska, this ship has already left its mark on some of the world's most iconic destinations. It's planning on cruising the Caribbean and possibly making its way to the Mediterranean in 2024 and 2025!

Our Starlight2Travel group was delighted over the wonders onboard this amazing cruise ship! It was an amazing experience for our group.

Here are the 10 reasons we recommend travelers to sail on the Icon of the Seas...
