Dining is one of the most important aspects of a cruise, and Royal Caribbean does it better than anyone. Not only is their complimentary dining delicious, but their specialty dining is some of the best in the mass-market cruise industry. Royal's upcoming Oasis Class ship- Utopia of the Seas- will be offering a wide array of incredible specialty restaurants, from farm fresh inspired fare, to takeout sushi, to a fully immersive dining experience- Royal Railroad - Utopia Station.

Utopia is set to make her debut on July 19th out of Port Canaveral, offering short sailing through the Caribbean for the biggest weekend ever! Here are all the specialty dining restaurants guests can expect to find onboard this brand new ship:

IZUMI HIBACHI & SUSHI | Another Royal fan favorite, Izumi Hibachi & Sushi offers a delicious Japanese menu. Inside you will find traditional seating, as well as seating around the teppanyaki tables for those who have reserved the teppanyaki experience (this tends to sell out quickly as it is very popular). Enjoy delicious rolls including the seared tuna tataki roll, crispy tuna roll, and other classics. For dessert the mochi trio is the way to go with flavors of mango, strawberry, and chocolate.
