Creating Thrill Island on Icon of the Seas

Bold vacationers call for bold adventures, and Royal Caribbean is delivering that and more at the new Thrill Island on Icon of the Seas. The world’s best family vacation will feature never-before-seen experiences and signature favorites, from the largest waterpark at sea, Category 6, to the first Crown’s Edge – an adventure course 154 feet above the ocean. 

Thrill Island
Adventurers on Icon of the Seas are in for the ultimate thrill at the largest waterpark at sea, Category 6. Thrill Island’s six record-breaking slides reach new heights: Pressure Drop, the industry’s first open free-fall slide; Frightening Bolt, the tallest drop slide at sea; Storm Surge and Hurricane Hunter, the first family raft slides with four riders per raft; and Storm Chasers, cruising’s first mat-racing duo.

Creating Thrill Island

In “Making an Icon: Creating Thrill Island,” the innovators cover the adventures in store and how they are pushing the envelope on cruise ship design by adding more weight at the top of Icon with six record-breaking waterslides and more water than ever before. The thrill-o-meter will be off the charts for thrill-seekers and their families who cheer them on in this new neighborhood when Icon sets sail in January 2024.
