Icon of the Seas Reaches Major Milestone

Royal Caribbean International’s Icon of the Seas reached its next major construction milestone at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Turku, Finland recently, when the first Icon Class ship was floated out from the dry dock where it has been under construction for more than eight months.

As part of the float out, the ship’s dry dock was filled with water overnight. Once the dock was filled, Icon was then moved to an outfitting dock, which will be its home for the next year until construction is complete.
