Royal Caribbean launches world's largest cruise vessel.

Royal Caribbean received the world's largest cruise liner from Meyer Turku.

Meyer Turku built the Icon of the Seas in Finland, and the cruise operator took possession on Monday. 

Royal Caribbean reported 1,200 employees and top executives from both organizations attended.

A data sheet states that Royal Caribbean's Icon of the Seas, the world's largest cruise liner, has 20 decks, 18 of which are accessible to 7,600 guests. 

This is approximately 1,200 feet long. 

After Royal Caribbean announced the ship's second sea trials, Meyer Turku delivered the 2,350-person ship a few weeks later.

"Welcoming Icon of the Seas to Royal Caribbean is a remarkable accomplishment years in the making for thousands of innovators, engineers, architects and designers," stated Royal Caribbean International CEO Michael Bayley. 

More than 2,800 guest rooms in 28 types make up the 250,800-tonne Icon of the Seas.

As of October, it offers a three-story "Ultimate Family Townhouse" with a "in-suite slide

areas for karaoke and to watch movies," and two balconies.
