Royal Caribbean is at it again, I feel like I may be repeating myself, but they are building and releasing ships faster than I can keep up with. Earlier this year we saw the new Icon of the Seas make its debut and now Utopia of the Seas is set to make its debut at the end of July 2024. Two new ships in one year…wowzah! 

Utopia is a sister ship to Icon of the Seas but will be a bit smaller in size but no shortage of things to do and 8 unique neighbourhoods to explore. Here are some key details about Utopia of the Seas: 


This is the 6th ship in Royal Caribbean’s Oasis Class of ships. It is approximately 236,857 gross tons and can accommodate about 5,668 passengers (based on double occupancy) with an international crew of 2,290. Now that's a lot of people!  


Dining Options: There is a wide variety of dining venues, as well as 13 specialty restaurants of course, casual eateries, and the main dining rooms. Take your taste buds on a tour around the world with 20 plus unique dining venues.

Recreation: Multiple pools, one with Vegas inspired pool parties, water slides with the Abyss coming in at 43 feet higher than its predecessors, then there is the ultimate beachfront paradise just for adults called Hideaway Beach fueled with nonstop beats, and the favorites like rock climbing walls, a zip line, and a mini-golf course, just to name a few things.  

Accommodations: A range of staterooms from interior rooms to lavish suites, including family-friendly options and luxury accommodations. New to Utopia is the Solarium Suites. Each of the two suites are located above the bridge wings on the port and starboard side of the ship on Deck 14. The panoramic windows will offer you sweeping 280-degree views of the ocean from the large living space. The one thing to note with this new category, you do not have a balcony, but you do have beautiful views.  

Entertainment: High-end entertainment options such as Broadway-style shows, shows that will be unique to Utopia only, ice-skating performances, and aquatic shows, intimate comedy acts, classic game shows and don’t forget a Toga Party.


Sustainability: The ship is designed with advanced technology to improve energy efficiency and reduce environmental impact, after all every little bit helps.  

Technology: Enhanced Wi-Fi capabilities, smart room features, and you can download the Royal Caribbean app so you can stay up to date with everything going on while onboard the ship.  

Utopia of the Seas is anticipated to be one of the most advanced and luxurious ships in the Royal Caribbean fleet, continuing the line’s tradition of innovation and excellence in the cruise industry. With this ship the aim is to provide an unparalleled cruising experience with a focus on luxury, comfort, and an extremely wide array of activities for everyone of all ages.  

It has just been announced that Meghan Trainor will be Godmother to the magnificent ship. On July 15, 2024 Meghan will bring all the vibes to Utopia of the Seas to get the party started right and officially welcome the newest ship to the Royal Caribbean fleet.

Utopia of the Seas will set sail for Orlando (Port Canaveral) where it will begin a series of 3- and 4-night sailings to Nassau and Royal Caribbean’s private island - Perfect Day at Coco Cay from July 19 for the rest of 2024. So, if you’re looking for a fun filled weekend getaway, this may be an option for you.
