World’s Biggest Cruise Ship May Visit Aruba

World’s Biggest Cruise Ship May Visit Aruba

In a major move for the cruise world, Royal Caribbean is all set to launch its largest cruise ship, the Icon of the Seas, on January 27. This colossal ship, able to accommodate a whopping 7,600 passengers, is in talks to possibly include Aruba in its travel plans, according to discussions between the Aruba Ports Authority and Royal Caribbean, as reported by 24ora.com.

The Icon of the Seas isn’t just big; it’s loaded with cool features like the biggest water park at sea, seven pools, twenty decks, and over forty places to eat or grab a drink. With 2806 rooms, it’s been under construction for an impressive 900 days.

For travel enthusiasts, the Icon will take on various routes, making stops at places like St Maarten, St Kitts, St Thomas, Cozumel, the Bahamas, Roatan, and more. If you’re eyeing a trip on this massive ship, prices range from $2500 to $4000 per person.

Aruba is currently in talks with Royal Caribbean, but planning these things takes time. Cruise lines usually plan their routes a good two years ahead. If the Icon of the Seas does make its way to Aruba, it could mean good news for the island’s economy, as per 24ora.com.

Concerns about big ships and their environmental impact are real, but here’s a positive note – the Icon of the Seas mostly runs on liquefied natural gas (LNG). This greener approach aligns with the industry’s push for more sustainable practices.

As we count down to the Icon of the Seas’ first voyage, the possibility of Aruba being part of the journey adds an exciting chapter to Royal Caribbean’s story and could bring a boost to Aruba’s economy.
