Royal Caribbean’s new Utopia of the Seas ship will sail out of Florida’s Port Canaveral next summer and primarily offer 3-night and 4-night cruises to the Bahamas, the company has announced.

Utopia of the Seas will be the first of the Oasis class ships to offer such short getaways. Trips will include stops at CocoCay – the cruise line’s private island in the Bahamas and the site of its new adults-only Hideaway Beach.

Bookings opened June 23.

“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.”

Utopia of the Seas will offer guests access to five pools, including a sloping beach-entry pool, as well as an adults-only solarium, more than 20 dining opens, more than 20 different bars and entertainment spots, two casinos, live entertainment venues and an ice-skating rink.

The private island CocoCay features 13 waterslides, a swim-up bar, pools, overwater cabanas and more.
