Fire and Power Outage on Royal Caribbean's Icon of the Seas

Royal Caribbean International’s Icon of the Seas recently experienced a fire and power outage while docked in Costa Maya, a tourist region in Southeast Mexico. A spokesperson confirmed that the fire, which occurred on Tuesday, was contained to an area where crew members worked. Fortunately, no injuries were reported.

The ship’s backup power was immediately activated, and the main power system was eventually restored to normal operation.

The Icon of the Seas, the largest cruise ship in the world, entered service in January 2024. The 250,800-ton vessel boasts over 2,800 guest cabins in 28 variations and features a three-story "Ultimate Family Townhouse." Travelmation's head of media and luxury travel adviser, Rebekah Ingraham, described the ship as unlike anything she had ever seen. "When you drive up to the port, you can’t help but just go ‘wow,’" she told FOX Business.

A standard room on the ship's seven-day Caribbean voyage costs between $1,450 and $1,850, while suites range from $2,900 to $4,800. The ship offers a "first-of-its-kind" experience with multiple pools, a water park, and a variety of dining options. "It’s thrills you never dared to imagine and next-level chill you never dreamed possible," according to Royal Caribbean’s website. Guests can enjoy the largest water park at sea and an all-out test of courage dangling high above the ocean, promising an unforgettable vacation experience.
