Thrills Beyond Imagination: Category 6 Waterpark & Iconic Attractions

Welcome to Category 6, an aquatic experience that is the largest waterpark at sea. Here, families and thrill-seekers alike can enjoy the Frightening Bolt, the tallest waterslide on a cruise ship, which promises heart-racing excitement with each twist and turn. Then, brace yourself for the Pressure Drop, an open freefall waterslide and Hurricane Hunter, the first family raft slide at sea! This area is more than just 6 record-breaking slides. Gather your crew for an adrenaline surge!

When you’re ready for a break from the aquatics, head over to Crown’s Edge, a skywalk and obstacle course all in one where the floor beneath you might just disappear leaving you dangling over the ocean. Once you’ve experienced all thrilling options yourself, head to the Wizard of Oz, Aqua Action for a jaw-dropping production, or an adults-only comedy show. The options are endless when the day turns to night.

A Pool for Every Mood

Imagine a cruise where every day brings a new aquatic experience with 7 pools, 9 whirlpools and ocean views throughout. Icon of the Seas features the Royal Bay, the largest pool at sea, overlooking Central Park, a lush tree-filled oasis in the middle of the ship that promotes relaxation with live plant walls and a champagne bar. One of the most fascinating aspects of this ship is that it houses over 13,000 plant varieties mostly picked up from Cadiz, Spain on the initial sailing to Miami from the shipyard in Turku. The array of infinity-edge pools seamlessly blends the pool experience with the majesty of the ocean and breathtaking backdrop. It’s an invitation to relax, soak up the sun, and enjoy the views.
