ICON CLASS UPDATE


Recommended Posts

I hope it's not just that universal sphere thing. That is a TON of space to be wasted on a single use venue like that. Maybe I am wrong, but that is the kind of thing in a theme park that gets one, maybe two different shows that run all the time. So after you've seen them once you never go back. But I guess the aqua theater and Ice rink is like that too. Maybe it will be cool. I dunno.

Hmmmm... If this becomes a popular venue in Vegas and other Entertainment meccas, perhaps there will be a lot of content made for it and they can keep it from getting stale by getting a trickle of new content on the ships.

Assuming it is a spherical theater, it could be used to show regular movies with either the right projector lens setup or digital calibration of the projector to warp the image appropriately so it'd look relatively normal. Royal might also use it for planetarium shows (there's a slew of content out there already for the curved dome screens; examples here: https://www.mpm.edu/now-showing and https://www.colorado.edu/fiske/showtimes/fulldome-films-star-shows),  IMAX/Omnimax movies (with the lens/digital setup mentioned before), or something nuts using a drone streaming 360 degree footage back to the theater.

And that's not even considering them creating their own films.

"It’s massive – over 500 feet wide and 300 feet tall"

 

It didn't look like the one on Icon was big enough for more than a few people (if it was an entertainment venue)

Interpolate

There is also another Oasis class being built right now so this might be that.

That would be Utopia,some have suggested it could be a kind of a Oasis/Icon hybrid.

Royal has anounced an anouncement lol. There will be an Icon information reveal event in September in NYC. 

Royal is really playing this one up, I hope it lives up to the hype!

I have a feeling that it will live up to the hype.  The last time I think Royal was this secretive about the launch of whole new class of ship was for Oasis and she certainly lived up to the hype.

I'm confident Royal won't let us down and our patience will be rewarded in September!!!
