Is this hell on earth?

This, believe it or not, is a promotional pic of new cruise ship Icon of the Seas.

To me it looks like hell on earth. An American theme park but with less taste and decorum.

It accompanied the news that Royal Caribbean has taken delivery of Icon of the Seas.

The 250,800-tonne ship, boasting 20 decks, becomes the largest cruise ship in the world.

It has capacity for 7,600 guests and with crew members aboard that adds up to nearly 10,000 people on the high seas.

What a horrendous thought.

But don’t expect any negativity in the glossy magazines and travel supplements. They would’t exist without cruise industry advertising, so have to remain positive

“We are celebrating more than a new ship; it’s also the celebration of the culmination of more than 50 years of innovation to create the ultimate vacation experience,” said Royal Caribbean Group CEO Jason Liberty.

Icon of the Seas will sail to Cadiz, Spain, for some finishing touches before a transatlantic voyage to its new home in Miami, Travel Mole reports.

The maiden voyage, a week-long Caribbean cruise, is scheduled to depart on January 27, 2024.

The ship features 40 bars and restaurants, seven pools, a FlowRider wave simulator and a mini golf course.

There are 28 different stateroom categories including the three-level Family Townhouse.

Not for me thanks.
