The Central Park Neighborhood was an innovative design choice that made its debut on Oasis of the Seas, and on all other Oasis Class ships since. As with everything else onboard Icon- Royal has taken Central Park to the next level with a larger space, returning fan favorites made even better, and all-new venues!
What is in Central Park?
Central Park is an open air neighborhood down the middle of the ship, with thousands of live plants throughout, all taken care of by the ship's onboard horticulturist. As you stroll through the walking paths, under trees and around lush vegetation, you will completely forget that you are on a ship at all. You will pass by lamp posts, cafe seating, and retail shops that you can pop in and out of as though you are in a city back home. Here are all the venues that can be found in Central Park on Icon:
IZUMI HIBACHI & SUSHI | Izumi has been a fan favorite for many years, and has been on Royal ships from Quantum to Wonder. Now on Icon, Izumi has been moved to central park. Here folks can enjoy sitting down for a delicious sushi dinner, or a show at the hibachi tables- one of the most popular dining experiences on a Royal ship.
IZUMI IN THE PARK | Icon will also be introducing "Izumi in the Park", the new take-out window concept connected to the sit-down restaurant. Now you can walk through the park and grab you favorite sushi roll or bubble cone ice cream to-go as late as 10pm!
PARK CAFE | Another central park favorite, the Park Cafe is a complimentary food option, and a great alternative to the bustling Windjammer- especially on busy boarding day. Here you can enjoy made-to-order fresh salads, quick bites, paninis and sandwiches. Fear not, famous Royal Kümmelweck roast beef sandwich will of course be on Icon.
BUBBLES | Reminiscent of a Parisian patisserie storefront, Bubble is the new champagne bar debuting on Icon. Here you can order a chilled flute of bubbly to celebrate your evening, or start your morning with a delicious bellini or mimosa.
LOU'S JAZZ & BLUES | You won't be able to resist the soulful sounds coming from this jazz lounge as you stroll through the park. Lou's is another new Icon venue, and is the perfect place to grab a cocktail and listen to the blues with friends old and new.
THE EMPIRE SUPPER CLUB | This brand new specialty dining menu is one of the finest dining you will find onboard. At $200 per person, and formal attire required, this is the go-to spot for a romantic date night as you and your partner enjoy an 8-course meal while a 3 piece jazz band plays onstage.
CHOPS GRILL | This is the classic steakhouse option onboard, and a Royal fan favorite. The location on the park is perfection, and on Icon you will be able to hand-select your cuts of beef from the butcher's counter if you desire! Alongside the juicy steaks and chops are an array of delicious sides and exquisite desserts to choose from.
TRELLIS BAR | This is an outdoor bar where you can enjoy a drink with friends under the stars in the evening while the live musicians perform on the street.
RETAIL | Retail will be back in Central Park on Icon. You can pop into stores and enjoy a bit of jewelry shopping, buy a new watch, and come home with a luxurious souvenir from your time onboard.
