Recommended Posts


  • The New Oasis Class Ship is the First of Its Kind to Debut With 3-night Weekend and 4-night Weekday Getaways
  • Featuring More Ways to Play, Dine, and Celebrate All in One Trip

At long last, Royal Caribbean International introduces Utopia of the Seas. Next summer, vacationers can celebrate the weekend in the biggest way ever with the ultimate 3-night weekend or 4-night weekday getaway on this newest ship.

Starting July 2024 from Port Canaveral (Orlando), Utopia will introduce unmatched weekend energy. This new ship will feature a combination of more than 40 ways to dine and drink, more pools than the days to count, ways to thrill and chill, and more of all the above at Perfect Day at CocoCay – Royal Caribbean’s private island in The Bahamas – including the new adults-only Hideaway Beach opening in early 2024.    


Utopia will be the first of the game-changing Oasis Class ships to offer short getaways when it debuts! The signature adventures of this newest Oasis Class ship will debut alongside firsts and reimagined experiences. These include a new Caribbean tiki bar; a first-of-its-kind immersive dining experience; the latest, greatest – and longest – dry slide at sea; newly designed resort-style pools; and more. 

Utopia opens for bookings on Royal Caribbean’s website as soon as Friday, June 23. Crown & Anchor Society loyalty members can book on Thursday, June 22. 

“Vacationers are looking to make every moment count by celebrating and recharging with their friends and family, and Utopia of the Seas makes all that possible in more ways than one,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “With the variety of dining, bars, pools, entertainment and thrills that make Oasis Class ships revolutionary and the experiences to match on our private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay, we’ve combined the best of the best to create the world’s biggest weekend for everyone.”

Pool Days for Every Mood

Whether it’s days by the pool or the beach – both can be found on the ultimate getaway. The vibes across Utopia’s five pools range from upbeat to lowkey.

  • Resort-style and sloping beach-entry pools – Three pools and three Lime & Coconut bars are at the center of the action. Vacationers can hit the high-speed waterslides at The Perfect Storm, while young kids take on Splashaway Bay. They can kick back and soak in the sun and live island tunes or enjoy quick, casual bites nearby. Options include a new poolside food truck with handheld favorites; Mexican-inspired street food and drinks at El Loco Fresh and Cantina Fresca; and more.
  • Solarium – The tranquil retreat is where adults can recharge in a pool and whirlpools of their own. The Solarium is complete with a bar, daybeds, panoramic ocean views and the Solarium Bistro.
  • Suite Sun Deck – Tucked away in the exclusive Suite Neighborhood, the pool features a bird’s-eye view of the ocean in this private oasis. It features daybeds, loungers, umbrellas, and more.
  • To mix up the memory making, vacationers can dry off by diving into record-breaking thrills around every corner. This includes the most adrenaline-pumping Ultimate Abyss yet, now 43 feet longer with zoom booster rollers and transparent racing windows. There’s also the 10-story-high zip line; the signature FlowRider surf simulator; mini golf at AquaDunes; and Utopia Playscape for young kids.

A World Tour of Flavors

With more than 20 dining options, every type of vacationer can take their taste buds on a world tour.

  • Immersive dining experience – Combining multiple courses, technology, and different destinations and storylines, the new, one-of-a-kind experience is a locomotive journey that engages all the senses.
  • Izumi and Izumi in the Park – Joining the Royal Caribbean staple in its new Central Park location, is a convenient, new window that serves up fresh sushi and Japanese-inspired sweets. Next door is a reimagined Izumi restaurant, with double the teppanyaki tables and new al fresco seating.
  • Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar – Now spanning two stories, the reimagined favorite and menu of authentic Italian dishes, extend to a new outside terrace. Gio’s Terrazza overlooks the signature Boardwalk.
  • More returning favorites on the menu include The Mason Jar Southern Restaurant & Bar, where live country music complements southern staples. Windjammer, featuring hundreds of dishes and flavors for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner – all inspired by Royal Caribbean’s international chefs. There’s also Hooked Seafood and Chops Grille, now connected to the signature Trellis Bar.

Celebrations for Every Occasion

Getting away is always a cause for celebration. On Utopia, travelers are just steps away from their next big night out.

Some highlights include:

  • Pesky Parrot – The new Caribbean bar is a slice of laidback paradise on the Royal Promenade. It serves up fruit-based cocktails made with rum, tequila, and gin, alongside frozen drinks and more.
  • Casino Royale – Upping the ante are two casinos that feature more than 370 slot machines, nearly 30 table games, and more.
  • Live music – It’s all about hitting the high note across five live music venues. These include Spotlight Karaoke, the Latin hotspot Boleros, Music Hall to rock out with the best cover bands at sea, the Bell & Barley English pub with a live guitarist, and the classic Schooner Bar.
  • Showstopping entertainment – The cruise line’s original production shows take center stage across air, ice, water and theater on Utopia. These shows include high diving, slacklining, and acrobatics at the AquaTheater; ice-skating feats at Studio B; and theatrical productions at the Royal Theater.

Accommodations for Everyone

Utopia is the getaway for everyone – even when it comes to the rooms vacationers can choose from. Across more than 20 types of accommodations, groups of friends and families – however large or small – can find their perfect fit. There’s rooms with views of the ocean or neighborhoods like the open-air Central Park and lively Boardwalk. There’s layouts for three, four, five, and more; or suites such as the Royal Loft Suite and Ultimate Family Suite. Plus, there’s even an all-new category – the Solarium Suites.

More on Utopia of the Seas

Utopia will also make waves when it debuts in July 2024 as the first Oasis Class ship powered by LNG. As the cruise line’s second LNG-powered ship – following Icon of the Seas ­– Utopia will advance Royal Caribbean’s commitment to the environment. It will combine LNG technology with a lineup of already-established initiatives, from waste heat recovery systems to shore power connection.

More details about Utopia will be revealed leading up to its highly anticipated debut next summer. Vacationers can be among the first to dive into all the new getaway has in store on www.RoyalCaribbean.com.
