Different Suite Options with Sky Class

Ready to set sail in early 2024, Icon will be equipped with several brand new suite categories, as well as updated classics that have been seen on previous ships. Here is the full list of new and improved suite options within Sky Class that will be available on Icon!

It serves as an ideal choice for families or groups of friends seeking a shared vacation experience.
