Royal Caribbean International premieres “Making an Icon: Creating Surfside.” Insights and feedback from adventurers inspired a whole new destination exclusive to Icon of the Seas. In this new episode, find out why and how the cruise line is bringing to life its first signature neighborhood designed for young families – adults, kids and grandparents alike can take memory-making to the next level and do what they enjoy together without compromise. Introducing Surfside

Creating Surfside

Surfside is the ultimate stay-all-day destination. There’s Baby Bay and Splashaway Bay, where kids can get drenched while grownups enjoy the best ocean views at Water’s Edge pool, complete with in-water loungers and islands. Families will also find an unexpected twist to Royal Caribbean’s signature carousel, which features eight newbeach-themed characters chosen by kids for kids, and more ways to play all day like at the arcade, and the climbable Playscape

The Lemon Post

The Lemon Post
At Surfside on the new Icon of the Seas, the neighborhood dedicated to young families, adults and kids alike will find a variety of ways to grab a bite and drinks. The Lemon Post will debut as the bar for the whole family, with a menu of options for grownups and another for kids. 

To recharge between adventures, the family neighborhood serves up all-new ways to grab kid-approved bites that the whole family can enjoy, like Surfside Eatery, a dedicated family buffet – a first for Royal Caribbean – The Lemon Post, a bar for the whole family with a menu for adults and another for kids; Surfside Bites, a spot for quick bites between adventures; and Pier 7, a new specialty restaurant featuring all-day brunch

Ultimate Family Townhouse

Also debuting on Icon is the first ever three-story, adventure-filled Ultimate Family Townhouse, complete with direct access to Surfside from its private patio. Surfside is set to make a splash!
