Royal Caribbean has touted their Icon Class ships as having endless thrills, chills, and wows, and their first vessel, Icon of the Seas has done just that. The "Thrills" are out-of-this-world, with the largest waterpark as sea- Category 6, the adrenaline-packed Crown's Edge ropes course, rock climbing, onboard surfing, and so much more. The "Wows" have captivated guests with amazing performances and entertainment, from the AquaTheater shows, to the Wizard of Oz, to the ice shows on the brand new circular ice rink in Absolute Zero.

But the "Chills" have been nothing short of perfection. Royal knows how to balance adventure and relaxation, making every Royal Caribbean ship perfect for every member of the family, and every type of vacationer. Those who love to lounge in the sun, enjoy a good book, and a dip in the pool will be enthralled at the beautiful Chill Island, and all new neighborhood on Icon.

Chill Island Venues

Chill island spans 3 separate decks, with an asymmetrical design, allowing for the maximum amount of sunshine, and keeping some spaces more separated and peaceful. Here are all venues you will find on Chill Island:

POOLS & HOT TUBS | The main pools are found on Deck 15. The Royal Bay Pool is the largest pool at sea, and offers plenty of room to spread out, loungers throughout the space, and two hot tubs on either side. Just across the way is the Cove Pool, against the side of the ship overlooking the incredible ocean views; and forward and aft are hot tubs in the midst of the sundeck spaces.

LIME & COCONUT BAR | There are 2 Lime & Coconut Bars on each side of Deck 15, a great place to stop and grab a refreshing drink with friends.

EL LOCO FRESH & CANTINA FRESCA | A Royal Caribbean favorite- El Loco Fresh offers complimentary Mexican food. You can enjoy burritos, tacos, and quesadillas, as well as a salsa bar for added flavor. Pair your tacos with a Mexican themed cocktail from Cantina Fresca just nextdoor for the perfect lunch.

SPRINKLES SOFT SERVE | Everyone's favorite spot on the ship, Sprinkles is perfectly placed in the middle of the pool deck for easy access to a delicious soft serve snack at any point throughout the day.

TABLE TENNIS | For a relaxing activity, there are several table tennis tables set up near the forward of Chill Island. Grab a friend and a paddle and get a bit competitive with a good game.

CLOUD 17 | This is one of the adults-only spaces on the ship. A large sundeck spans the starboard midship, with the star of the show being the beautiful Cloud 17 pool. This infinity-style pool is placed right at the edge of the ship, making it hard to tell where the pool ends and the ocean begins!

LIME & COCONUT BAR | Just next to the Cloud 17 pool is the 4th and final Lime & Coconut Bar. Grab a seat, order a cocktail, and chat up the entertaining and talented bartenders serving your drinks.
