While Royal Caribbean has impressed cruise enthusiasts its huge Wonder and has built much anticipation for its Icon, another ship is joining the expansive fleet. Joining Port Canaveral in 2024, Utopia of the Seas will cater to guests who want a short getaway but never want to compromise on all the entertainment possibilities.

Guests choose a particular ship and itinerary that fits with satisfying their sense of wanderlust. From moments of relaxation to exploring new food choices, the experiences on board are just as important as the ports of call.

As the newest Oasis Class ship, Utopia of the Seas will blend signature Royal Carribean experiences with 3-night and 4-night options. From stops at Perfect Day at Coco Cay to more than 40 ways to dine and drink on board, it might be hard to experience it all during the trip.

According to Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, “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. 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.”

Although everyone will have the “must do” lists, a few new items will captivate guests attention. For example, a new, immersive dining experience will be on board. While complete details have not been shared, this unique option could be even more engaging than the Celebrity Cruises Le Petit Chef.

Speaking of food choices, Utopia of the Seas will have more grab and go choices. From a new food truck to Izumi in the Park, the quick bite idea seems to be more prevalent. It might not be exactly the same as a food hall, but these types of options make anytime dining more convenient.

Many returning favorites will be highlights as well. From Mason Jar Southern Restaurant and Bar to Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar, the classics are front and center.

Whether guests want to eat their way through the vacation, seek extreme adventure, or enjoy the theater spectacle, each and every desire will be satisfied on Utopia of the Seas.

Utopia of the Seas will depart from Port Canaveral, Florida (Space Coast, about an hour from Orlando). Bookings are open now and itineraries begin starting July 2024.
