Jun 28 2023 Share

Royal Caribbean’s highly anticipated cruise ship, Icon of the Seas, is nearing its grand debut in January 2024, having successfully completed its initial sea trials in Europe. 

This extraordinary vessel is poised to become the world’s largest cruise ship and the first of Royal Caribbean’s Icon-class fleet. Built at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland, the ship promises an unparalleled experience for vacationers. 

It boasts the world’s largest waterpark at sea, featuring six water slides, along with a “resort getaway,” a “beach escape,” a theme park, and over 40 dining, drinking, and entertainment options. 

Inside, passengers will find the unique “Ultimate Family Townhouse,” a three-story adventure-filled accommodation complete with an in-suite slide, karaoke station, and hidden areas to explore. 

With 20 decks, the ship also features Royal Caribbean’s inaugural piano bar, eight distinct neighbourhoods, a massive pool, and thrilling experiences like Crown’s Edge. 

Weighing in at an estimated 250,800 tons and accommodating approximately 5,610 passengers and 2,350 crew members, the ship has undergone rigorous testing, involving over 450 specialists, to ensure its readiness. Additional sea trials are planned later this year before the ship’s inaugural voyage from South Florida in January 2024.


Three Hills Kunserva Makes It To Glastonbury

Jun 28 2023 Share

Glastonbury 2023 was certainly one for the history books, but did you know that the legendary festival had a touch of Maltese flavour this year?

That’s right – Malta’s own Three Hills Kunserva joined the likes of Elton John, Fred Again.., Arctic Monkeys and Guns N’ Roses, with the iconic tomato paste popping up in the form of a flag at the event’s Pyramid Stage.

The iconic moment was reported by the Three Hills brand, who reported that a group of Maltese & Gozitan friends took their favourite Kunserva brand to one of the UK’s most popular calendar events.

Hilarious, iconic and as Maltese as it gets… here’s hoping that we’ll be seeing more Maltese flavour in international festivals.
