Royal Caribbean International’s Icon of the Seas sets sail in the virtual world of Fortnite, offering families and friends an opportunity to experience a sneak peek of the world’s best family holiday destination before its debut in January 2024. The new addition to the metaverse, “Royal Caribbean: Hide ’N’ Sea”, is built using Fortnite Creative and offers a one-of-a-kind adventure on Icon of the Seas.
Gamers can explore the revolutionary neighbourhoods of Thrill Island and The Hideaway while enjoying the largest waterpark at sea, Category 6, and experiencing Crown’s Edge, a thrilling skywalk and ropes course towering 154 feet above the ocean. Players can also enjoy a parade through the Lost Dunes mini-golf course and soak in the vibes and views of The Hideaway Pool, the world’s first suspended infinity pool at sea, all while sailing the Caribbean.
The game invites players to hide, seek, and collect coins in a seven-minute round. As a hider, collecting all 25 coins instantly wins the game, while seekers aim to find all the hidden props before the timer runs out. Players can access the game by entering the island code or through in-game portals found in other Fortnite games.
The digital interpretation of Icon of the Seas is available worldwide on desktop, console, smartphone, and tablet devices. The activation is an independently created Fortnite Creative experience and is not sponsored, endorsed, or administered by Epic Games, Inc.
Icon of the Seas sets sail physically in January 2024, offering a first-of-its-kind combination of the best of every vacation in one. Adventurers can book their vacation on Icon by visiting the Royal Caribbean website and viewing their “Making an Icon” monthly series on YouTube.
In summary, Royal Caribbean International’s Icon of the Seas is breaking new ground by offering families and friends a chance to experience their upcoming vacation destination in a digital world through the world’s most popular game, Fortnite. The game’s imaginative and challenging features set the bar high for virtual gaming experiences, and the real-world version of Icon of the Seas promises to be just as groundbreaking.
