Royal Caribbean’s Utopia of the Seas heading to America

Royal Caribbean’s Utopia of the Seas set sail from the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France, after over two years of construction. The ship makes its way to Port Canaveral, Florida, where it will offer 3- and 4-night cruises to the Bahamas.

“With the delivery of Utopia of the Seas, we have the keys to the ultimate weekend,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “This is the short vacation that packs every way to make amazing memories in a 3-night weekend or 4-night weekday getaway. Vacationers want every minute to be a minute well spent, and the unmatched combination of Utopia and Perfect Day at CocoCay will deliver that. We are proud and excited to soon debut Utopia in a big way!”

Ways to chill and thrill on board

Utopia of the Seas offers five different pools from high energy to low key and adults only. Included are resort-style and sloping beach-entry pools, three Lime & Coconut bars, The Perfect Storm trio of waterslides, and more than a few spots to grab a bite to refuel, including Spare Tire – the new poolside food truck. Tucked away is the adults-only Solarium pool and the exclusive Suite Sun Deck, both tranquil escapes to chill.

Royal Caribbean’s signature “The Ultimate Abyss” is longer than ever, the dry slide is the longest at sea at 259 feet. Adventurers will plummet 10 decks as they speed through with new zoom booster rollers, transparent racing windows, and surprising twists and turns. Other thrills include the FlowRider surf simulator and the 10-story zip line.

Bigger ways to celebrate

Pesky Parrot is a new Caribbean tiki bar that sets the vacation tone with its island vibes and fruit-based cocktails made with rum, tequila, and gin, alongside frozen drinks.

Day and night, vacationers can vibe to weekend energy. Musicians and DJs playing live music of all genres, from rock ‘n’ roll to Latin hits, hit a high note at five live music venues and parties throughout Utopia. And for jaw-dropping performances, full-scale productions take center stage across Royal Caribbean’s signature stages of air, ice, water, and theater.
