Between the adrenaline-pumping thrills at the new Thrill Island and unrivaled ways to chill at neighborhoods like the new Chill Island and the luxurious four-level Suite Neighborhood, vacationers bonding with their families or getting away with friends will have all the ways to stay and play their way.

Icon will sail year-round, 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean vacations from Miami.
