As Royal Caribbean continues to reveal details on its upcoming mega ship Icon of the Seas, today the line is unveiling over 15 of the bars and nightlife experiences that will be found on board.
Here’s the rundown:
In Royal Caribbean’s first dueling pianos bar, talented pianists will battle it out on baby grand pianos as they take song requests to bring high-energy performances to the ship’s Royal Promenade.
Lou’s Jazz ‘n Blues
This new spot fills the open-air Central Park with live performances of soulful classics and jazz pop tunes.
Rye & Bean
Matching the transformational experiences in the AquaDome, this new coffee shop offers everything from classic cups of joe to espresso cocktails. It’s a cozy hangout by day and a buzzing bar with views of the AquaTheater entertainment by night.
The Overlook and Overlook Pods
The elevated lounge and first-of-their-kind nooks at sea take nights out and hangouts to another level. The wraparound windows in the AquaDome bring the ocean center stage during the day, and at night the aqua shows are just a few steps away. In the pods, friends can lounge with a drink, play board games, and kick back and listen to live music.
1400 Lobby Bar
The new meetup spot — inspired by the history of shipbuilding — is where guests might start their trip with a mix of sips developed with renowned mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim. This venue’s also the first to open the Royal Promenade to the outdoors with an ocean-facing terrace.
This walk-up champagne window in Central Park will serve glasses of mimosas, Prosecco, Bellinis, and even full bottles of champagne from morning to night.
Point & Feather
The neighborhood English pub on the Royal Promenade has a new open layout with darts games and tournaments as guests choose sips from a signature lineup of pints and enjoy music from a live guitarist.
Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade
This returning favorite serves up gameday bar fare and ice-cold beers as passengers catch their home teams on dozens of screens and play arcade and tabletop games.
Passengers can show off their vocal skills in front of the crowd or in a private room with their friends and family at this favorite karaoke spot on the Royal Promenade.
Other Returning Favorites
Other venues that will be on board Icon of the Seas that many Royal Caribbean cruisers will be familiar with include The Attic, Music Hall, (a larger) Trellis Bar, Boleros, and the Schooner Bar.
Icon of the Seas is scheduled to debut in January 2024. It will operate seven-night eastern and western Caribbean voyages year-round from Miami, with every sailing including a stop at Royal Caribbean’s private island Perfect Day at CocoCay.
