Utopia of the Seas, set to launch in 2024, will be Royal Caribbean’s sixth ship in the Oasis Class and among the largest cruise ships worldwide. While not as massive as the upcoming Icon of the Seas, this ship will still offer an abundance of amenities and experiences for passengers to enjoy. Bookings for sailings on Utopia of the Seas will be available starting from June 22, 2023. Let’s take a closer look at what this extraordinary vessel has in store.
It’s All About Size
Once completed, Utopia of the Seas will measure an impressive 236,860 gross registered tons and stretch 1,188 ft. in length. While similar in size to Wonder of the Seas, she will introduce modifications not found on previous Oasis Class ships. Accommodating up to 5,668 passengers in 2,834 staterooms, Utopia of the Seas promises a spacious and comfortable journey.
As the first Oasis Class ship powered by Liquified Natural Gas (LNG), Utopia of the Seas will call Port Canaveral in Florida home. LNG is an environmentally friendly fuel that significantly reduces carbon, sulfur, and nitrogen oxide emissions. By harnessing the power of LNG, Utopia of the Seas embraces a sustainable approach to cruising.
An Island Escape
Utopia of the Seas will embark on 3- and 4-night cruises to Nassau and the idyllic private island of Perfect Day at CocoCay. The inaugural voyage on July 22, 2024, will be a 4-night cruise to Nassau and Perfect Day at CocoCay, followed by a 3-night cruise to The Bahamas departing on July 26, 2024.
Neighborhoods and Layout
As the final addition to the Oasis Class, Utopia of the Seas brings a unique collection of neighborhoods and features. Alongside familiar favorites like The Boardwalk, Pool & Sports Zone, Central Park, and The Royal Promenade, this ship will introduce exclusive venues and stateroom options.
