Lionel Messi becomes ‘icon’ for Royal Caribbean International’s new cruise ‘Icon of the Seas’

Lionel Messi will take part in the naming ceremony for Royal Caribbean International's new cruise as a result of the pact.

The legendary football player, Lionel Messi has been named the ‘Icon’ of Royal Caribbean International‘s (RCI) new ship, ‘Icon of the Seas’.

Messi will take part in the naming ceremony for the cruise as a result of the arrangement in January 2024 in Miami. The Icon of Icon will have the honour of conferring safekeeping on the new ship, its crew, and the millions of families who will make lifelong memories on board in the years ahead.

Whether a “family vacation” means travelling with friends, family, or both, Icon’s extensive roster of firsts and next-level favourites spread across eight neighbourhoods allows everyone to create memories every day in their unique way. Every neighbourhood has its attractions, live entertainment, dining options, pubs, and more, making it a destination unto itself.

Recently, Royal Caribbean and Messi’s current team, Inter Miami CF, also struck a partnership, with the former being named the official vacation partner and main partner.

On the deal, Lionel Messi, commented, “I’m thrilled and honoured to join the Royal Caribbean family to celebrate the arrival of the game-changing Icon of the Seas. Icon is beyond anything else that’s out there for family vacations, with incredible never-before-seen features, all designed for making memories together.

Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, said, “Icon of the Seas is the culmination of more than 50 years of delivering memorable vacations, and it’s set to live up to its name in more ways than one when it changes the vacation industry in January 2024. It’s that ability to make such a widespread impact and change the status quo that the Icon of Icon must personify, and Lionel Messi has proven to be the perfect example of that for years in the world of sports and most recently in introducing a new era of excitement and passion for fútbol in Miami and the U.S.
