Icon of the Seas Completes Sea Trials

The highly anticipated vacation, Royal Caribbean’s Icon of the Seas, is one step closer to its debut in January 2024.

The all-new ship successfully sailed the open ocean for the first time after completing its first, crucial sea trials in Turku, Finland, where it is under construction at the Meyer Turku shipyard.

During the key milestone, more than 450 specialists ran four days of preliminary tests on the first Icon Class ship’s technical areas, like the main engines, bow and propellers, and even noise and vibration levels – all in preparation for the second sea trials that will push Icon to its limits later this year.
