Star of the Seas, the second Icon-class cruise ship for Royal Caribbean, has had more details revealed this week, including her home port.
She will sail from Port Canaveral, the busiest cruise port in the world, when she makes her debut in summer 2025.
The other exciting news is that she will go on sale to guests for her first cruises from Tuesday 5th December 2023, although her itineraries haven’t yet been revealed.
It also isn’t confirmed, but it’s likely that Star of the Seas will be the biggest cruise ship ever. While she is a sister ship to Icon of the Seas, Royal Caribbean has a history of making minor tweaks with each new ship to add an extra couple of inches, so that it always has a ‘new’ biggest ship in the world.
It’s expected that both Caribbean and Bahamas cruises will be offered, with calls at Royal Caribbean’s private resort Perfect Day at CocoCay almost guaranteed.
Typically, Royal Caribbean offers 7-night cruises on new ships, but Utopia of the Seas is bucking that trend, and it could be the same for Star of the Seas, with shorter 3-night and 4-night itineraries instead.
Icon Handed Over
The exciting news for Royal Caribbean fans only gets better, as Icon of the Seas was officially handed over to the cruise line this week.
She’s making her way to Miami now, where she will debut in January 2024.
The cruise line will be hosting events on the ship with officials before then. CEO Michael Bayley posted a preview performance from the ship, as UK singer Ruby Dollner prepares to star in The Wizard of Oz on the ship.
