Icon of the Seas Construction Update: A Sphere of Activity is Underway
May 2022 – Construction on Royal Caribbean International’s Icon of the Seas is underway in Turku, Finland, and one of the revolutionary ship’s state-of-the-art elements is on the move again. Watch as the unnamed, 175-metric-ton sphere – first seen in December 2021 – is lifted onto the ship after four days of preparation and a day-long transfer by barge. Currently 46 feet (14 metres) tall and 50 feet in diameter, the structure is now wrapped in protective material and ready for its next phase of its construction. The cruise line’s next highly anticipated ship, Icon is set to debut in fall 2023 with a lineup of firsts and signature favorites that will set a new standard for vacations.
