Icon of the Seas has arrived in her home port in Miami, and the first paying customers will be boarding in a little over a week, kicking off the beginning of the Icon era with Royal Caribbean's first Icon Class ship! Royal has promised incredible thrills, chills, and memories that you will experience while on Icon, and is unveiling all new venues and neighborhoods that have never been seen before on previous Royal Caribbean vessels.
As with any cruise experience, the dining is a huge part of it, and on Icon we will see new incredible specialty restaurants, as well as returning fan favorites. Let's take a look at all the specialty dining that will be available on the ship:
IZUMI HIBACHI & SUSHI | A returning favorite, Izumi is the sushi spot that has been seen on many Royal ships from the Quantum to the Oasis Class. Icon will of course also have the Hibachi tables, one of the most sought after dining experiences Royal offers; and as always we recommend booking ahead of time to enjoy this popular specialty option. Izumi will have a new location on Icon, right in the heart of Central Park- the perfect spot considering the new takeout window concept debuting on the ship.
IZUMI IN THE PARK | This is the takeout window that will be attached to the sit down restaurant. Here guests can stroll through the park, and grab their favorite sushi roll, or ice cream in a bubble cone to-go, up until 10pm...the perfect late night snack!
THE EMPIRE SUPPER CLUB | This is by far the most elevated dining you will find on Icon. Dinner starts at $200 per person, with a formal dress code, making this the perfect restaurant for a romantic date. Enjoy an eight course dinner in an elegant dining room, with a 3 piece jazz band playing onstage throughout the evening.
CELEBRATION TABLE | The Celebration Table is a new concept for Royal- a VIP private dining experience. You can reserve the space for you and your 13 closest friends and family for a birthday party, anniversary, and everything in between. You will enjoy a private lounge, and a delicious dinner served family style with a specialty cocktail and customized menu for your special event.
CHOPS GRILL | A true Royal Caribbean classic, Chops Grill is the steakhouse concept onboard Icon. You will enjoy delicious cuts of steak that you can hand-pick from the butcher's counter, alongside a wide array of side dishes and incredible desserts.
GIOVANNI'S ITALIAN KITCHEN & WINE BAR | If you like handmade pastas and pizza, look no further that Giovanni's. Here you can enjoy delicious bolognese pasta dish or margarita pizza that can be paired with the perfect glass of wine.
HOOKED SEAFOOD | A little taste of New England onboard- Hooked is the seafood spot on Icon, offering delicious menu items from crab cakes, to lobster, to oysters, and so much more! After all, there is no better place to eat sea food than at sea!
PIER 7 | This delicious california-inspired specialty restaurant in the Surfside Family Neighborhood offers brunch all day as well as delicious lunch options. You can enjoy surf and turf tacos, crispy mango lime shrimp tostadas, the fluffy buttermilk pancake platter, eggs benedict, and more before heading back to the infinity pool for a little lounge in the sun.
