Star of the Seas will offer 7-night cruises alternating between Eastern and Western Caribbean sailings from its homeport of Port Canaveral, Florida. The cruise ship’s inaugural journey will feature stops at the Royal Caribbean’s private island Perfect Day at CocoCay, St. Thomas, and St. Kitts, offering passengers a diverse and enriching travel experience.

Star of the Seas is a marvel of modern cruise engineering. The second Icon-class cruise ship is expected to be similar in size and amenities to its sister ship, Icon of the Seas. We expect the ship to be approximately 250,800 gross tons, with accommodations for up to 7,600 passengers at maximum capacity. Including crew members brings the total onboard population to around 10,000 people.

In addition to its size and passenger capacity, the Star of the Seas stands out for its eight neighborhoods and environmental commitment. It will be the third ship in Royal Caribbean’s fleet powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG), underscoring the cruise line’s dedication to sustainable practices.
