January 2023 – The world’s greatest family vacation, Icon of the Seas, is taking memory-making to the next level for grownups, kids and even grandparents. And when it comes to young families, Royal Caribbean’s insights and feedback from adventurers inspired a whole new neighborhood. In “Making an Icon: Creating Surfside,” find out why and how the cruise line’s creating its first neighborhood dedicated to young families. The goal: to design a place where every family member can spend time together and do what they enjoy all the same. From different water experiences to new restaurants, even a bar with menus for adults and kids, to classic adventures with a twist like the signature carousel and an arcade, and the first three-story Ultimate Family Townhouse, Surfside is set to make a splash debut in January 2024.
