The fall temperatures may be dropping, but the Royal Caribbean news from this week is as hot as ever, and we have it all summarized for you in this week's round up!
Sit back, and catch-up on all of the Royal Caribbean news and happenings form this week.
Late in the week, Royal Caribbean filed a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark office for a new cruise ship name.
On October 17, Royal Caribbean registered, "Icon of the Seas" to presumably use for its first Project Icon class of cruise ships that were announced last week.
Assuming Icon of the Seas is in fact the name of the first Icon class ships, that ship will debut sometime in 2022 and be powered by liquefied natural gas and fuel cell technology.
