  • Royal Caribbean's new Icon-class ship, Star of the Seas, will introduce a Chief Dog Officer named Sailor in 2025.
  • The move follows the popularity of Rover, the current Chief Dog Officer on Icon of the Seas.
  • Sailor's role on the ship will be similar to Rover's to enhance the passenger experience by providing interactions with a friendly onboard pet.

This week, Royal Caribbean International announced that Star of the Seas will debut with a charming addition. Following the paw prints of Rover, the beloved golden retriever who serves as the Chief Dog Officer on the Icon of the Seas, the cruise line announced that Star of the Seas will get its own Chief Dog Officer named Sailor.

The sailor’s role as Chief Dog Officer mirrors that of Rover, providing comfort and joy to passengers.

Details about Sailor’s breed are still under wraps. However, the role of the Chief Dog Officer is clear: to bring smiles and a bit of extra happiness to guests and crew members alike.

Sailor will when the Star of the Seas launches in the summer of 2025.

The Star of the Seas is the second of Royal Caribbean’s Icon-class ships and will begin its maiden voyage with an 11-day roundtrip from Barcelona scheduled for September 25, 2025. The new ship promises to continue the line’s tradition of combining luxury cruising with innovative amenities and attractions.
