Experience Innovation and Adventure on the World’s Second Largest Cruise Ship, Setting Sail from Port Canaveral.

Royal Caribbean International has announced that its new ship, Utopia of the Seas, will start operating from Port Canaveral in July 2024. This Oasis-class ship, fueled by liquefied natural gas (LNG), will offer 3- and 4-day journeys to Royal Caribbean’s private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay, in The Bahamas. Utopia will join Wonder of the Seas and Adventure of the Seas as the third largest ship in the world, making Port Canaveral the homeport for two of these impressive vessels.

“We are excited to welcome Royal Caribbean’s Utopia of the Seas next year,” said Capt. John Murray, CEO of Port Canaveral. “This LNG-powered Oasis-class ship will be based at Port Canaveral, providing our guests with high-quality experiences on popular shorter itineraries. We are proud to have the trust and commitment of our valued cruise partners.”

Utopia of the Seas will introduce a variety of signature adventures and innovative features, including the newly unveiled adults-only Hideaway Beach. This new addition will offer a Caribbean tiki bar, immersive dining experiences, a thrilling dry slide, redesigned resort-style pools, and more.

Michael Bayley, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International, highlighted the ship’s offerings, stating, “Utopia of the Seas provides vacationers with endless possibilities to celebrate and reconnect with loved ones. With a wide range of dining options, bars, pools, entertainment, and exhilarating experiences, combined with the incredible offerings on our private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay, we have created the ultimate weekend getaway for everyone.”

Construction of Utopia of the Seas began in March 2022 at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in France. Once completed, it will be the second largest cruise ship globally, measuring 1,188 feet long, 211 feet wide, and featuring 18 decks to accommodate 5,668 guests.

Among its remarkable features, Utopia will include 5 pools, 3 water slides, 21 dining venues, 23 bars, 2 casinos, 8 hot tubs, and will be the only Oasis-class ship to include 2 Solarium Suites. Bookings for the ship will open on Royal Caribbean’s website on June 23, 2023.
