Bookings open for Royal Caribbean’s Utopia of the Seas, offering short getaways starting summer 2024

MIAMI — Royal Caribbean International’s Utopia of the Seas, bookable now, will be the first of the company’s Oasis Class ships to offer short getaways.

Starting July 2024 from Port Canaveral, Florida, Utopia will introduce three-night weekend and four-night weekday sailings that feature more than 40 ways to dine and drink, over 20 types of accommodations, plus a visit to Perfect Day at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s private island in The Bahamas that includes the new adults-only Hideaway Beach opening in early 2024.

Bookings are currently open.

“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.”

Highlights onboard include the following:

  • Pools: Guests will be spoiled for choice with five pools onboard, including three pools and three Lime & Coconut bars at the center of the action, a tranquil pool and whirlpools at the adults-only Solarium, and a pool on the Suite Sun Deck, tucked away in the exclusive Suite Neighborhood and featuring daybeds, loungers and umbrellas.

  • New dining experience: To be revealed at a later date, this new immersive experience will combine multiple courses, technology and different destinations and storylines.

  • 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 featuring double the teppanyaki tables and new al fresco seating.

  • Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar: Now spanning two storeys, the reimagined favourite now boasts a new outside terrace – Gio’s Terrazza – that overlooks the signature Boardwalk.

  • Returning culinary favourites: Guests can enjoy delicious cuisine at The Mason Jar Southern Restaurant & Bar, where live country music complements southern staples, Windjammer featuring hundreds of dishes inspired by Royal Caribbean’s chefs, and Chops Grille, now connected to the signature Trellis Bar.

  • Pesky Parrot: This new Caribbean bar on the Royal Promenande serves up fruit-based cocktails made with rum, tequila and gin, along with frozen drinks and more.

  • Casino Royale: Upping the ante are two casinos featuring more than 370 slot machines, nearly 30 table games and more.

  • Live music: Five live music venues are onboard, ranging from Spotlight Karaoke and Latin hotspot Boleros, to Music Hall featuring covering bands, the English pub Bell & Barley, home to a live guitarist, and the classic piano bar, Schooner Bar.

  • Live productions: The cruise line’s original production shows include high diving, slacklining and acrobatics at the AquaTheater, ice-skating at Studio B, and theatrical productions at the Royal Theater. 

Guests can get away on Utopia any Friday or Monday, or go all out on any ship in Royal Caribbean’s action-packed lineup of 3- to 8-night vacations from Port Canaveral, which includes the new Wonder of the Seas.

Utopia of the Seas will also be the first Oasis Class ship – and Royal Caribbean’s second ship overall – to be powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG), the cleanest-burning marine fuel to date.
