If you're looking for an exhilarating vacation aboard a cruise ship that also doubles as the largest at-sea waterpark, Royal Caribbean's newly unveiled Icon of the Seas may be right for you.

The extravagant vessel is currently under construction, but it is already making a splash on social media for its over-the-top amenities, such as the world's tallest drop slide, the first suspended infinity pool with a swim-up bar, six water slides, and an AquaDome and theater, among others.

Royal Caribbean said the vessel will be the largest cruise ship ever built, with capacity to host 7,600 passengers at maximum occupancy (nearly 10,000 people with crew members). The ship's maiden voyage is scheduled for January 2024.
