See the press release here and a short video here for the first look at all the new details.
Highlights of the all-new experiences include:
Bonding over memorable meals – New elevated dining experiences with unmatched ambiance
Empire Supper Club: A lavish restaurant in Central Park that’s an extravagant night out with a taste of old New York. The eight-course experience of premium American cuisine is accompanied by a swanky three-piece band that plays unexpected renditions of modern favorites.
Celebration Table: Special occasions and milestones get the VIP treatment at this private, 12 -seat experience. Paired with AquaDome’s sweeping ocean views, guests have their choice of American, Italian, Asian and seafood menus. To add that personal touch, there are also plus-ups and menu upgrades to choose from.
Convenience is key – New quick options near all the action (or relaxation) throughout Icon
AquaDome Market: Royal Caribbean’s first-ever food hall will introduce five different stalls with a range of flavors, from sweet and savory crepes to Asian and Mediterranean, alongside a selection of wines and beer for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Izumi in the Park: The all-day window debuts next to the first Izumi in Central Park, serving up fresh sushi and Japanese street food to go, like taiyaki ice cream with Insta-worthy toppings.
The Pearl Cafe: A new stop for refreshing bites day or night, the cafe sits between The Pearl and the floor-to-ceiling ocean views in Royal Promenade.
Basecamp: The new spot to refuel between memory-making in Thrill Island, Chill Island and The Hideaway serves drinks and treats like pretzel bites with cheese sauce and crispy shrimp bao buns. For a sweet ending, nearby is Desserted, the new milkshake bar with over-the-top shakes, including adults-only boozy options.
The Grove: The al fresco and casual Mediterranean dining option conveniently located on the suite sun deck in the Suite Neighborhood.
Family and kid-approved choices – The whole family can have their pick of options to enjoy from sunrise to sunset:
Surfside Eatery: The new buffet dedicated to families at the heart of Surfside, the stay-all-day neighborhood for young families, has choices for everyone to enjoy at breakfast, lunch and dinner, including twists on kids classics for the grownups.
Pier 7: The laidback, all-day brunch at this venue in Surfside serves up casual California-inspired dishes, like surf-and-turf tacos, smoked salmon benedict and sharable platters.
Surfside Bites: This new pit stop makes maximizing every minute of adventure easy, thanks to the walkup window and its menu of quick snacks like burgers, popcorn chicken, cinnamon-sugar donut holes and more.
