Edited by Travel Weekly


    Following a record-breaking response to the new Icon of the Seas, Royal Caribbean International is opening the highly anticipated holiday’s next lineup of 7-night adventures 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 holidays to top-rated private island Perfect Day at CocoCay and new destinations: Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

    Travellers can be one of the first to book starting 13 September (PT time), on Royal Caribbean’s website. Crown & Anchor Society loyalty members have special access which is already open.

    “Since Icon of the Seas was revealed almost a year ago, the response has been unprecedented by every measure,” president & CEO, Royal Caribbean International, Michael Bayley, said. 

    “Families and friends are looking for holidays 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.”

    Every type of family and adventurer setting their sights on their next summer holiday, spring break or celebration can choose any time of year to get away on the world’s best getaway and island hop between Perfect Day at CocoCay, The Bahamas, and Caribbean gems. 

    Highlights Include:

    • 7-night Eastern Caribbean & Perfect Day at CocoCay, The Bahamas – Sailing from Miami
      • Guests have their choice of picturesque locales in store from new destinations Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, and San Juan, Puerto Rico; as well as Philipsburg, St. Maarten; and Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas. Along with two or three days at sea, every cruise includes a visit to Royal Caribbean’s award-winning private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay, which features Hideaway Beach, a new adults-only beachfront paradise opening January 2024. 
    • 7-night Western Caribbean & Perfect Day at CocoCay, The Bahamas – Sailing from Miami
      • Island hopping in the western Caribbean is where adventurers can visit Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico; and Roatan, Honduras. Every western Caribbean cruise also features Perfect Day at CocoCay, plus two days at sea to enjoy all the world’s best family holiday has to offer. 

    As the first-of-its-kind combination of the best of every holiday – from the resort getaway to the beach escape and the theme park adventure – Icon is where everyone can make memories together and on their own terms.

    Highlights of the game-changing experiences in store include six record-breaking waterslides, seven pools – one for every day of the week – a stay-all-day neighbourhood designed for young families, entertainment across air, ice, water and stage; 40-plus ways to dine and drink; and more across eight neighbourhoods that are destinations in and of themselves.
