On July 19th Utopia of the Seas will make her official debut, setting sail on her inaugural voyage to the Caribbean for the "World's Biggest Weekend". She will be Royal Caribbean's 6th Oasis Class ship, and will be taking guests on 3 and 4 night cruises, with a stop at Perfect Day at CocoCay. Royal has promised bigger ways to dine, bigger ways to party, and bigger ways to splash between the ship and CocoCay; so we are exploring all the water fun that guests can enjoy while sailing onboard Utopia of the Seas.

Pools & Water Fun

BEACH POOL | Located at the base of the waterslides, and right across from the kids splash pad, the Beach Pool is a great space for families. There is a large shallow section with shade structures, and a deeper area for swimming (don't forget to utilize the life jackets for the kiddos!). Surrounding the pool are loungers, and you are only steps away from the Lime & Coconut Bar where you can grab a refreshing drink to enjoy poolside.

FLOWRIDER | Try your hand at bodyboarding and surfing at the FlowRider Surf Simulator, located at the very aft of the ship. This is one of the more popular onboard activities for guests searching for something fun and active. Fill out the waver and then try body boarding into the wave. Guests can also attempt stand-up surfing if they choose, and will given a few chances each visit to the FlowRider to try and stay upright and ride the wave. Guests who are successful will level up and be allowed to stand-up surf throughout the rest of the cruise.

MAIN POOL | The main pool onboard has been split into two pools, one on the port side, one on the starboard side, with a view down to Central Park in the middle. There is a deep end for swimming, as well as a shallow section with in-pool loungers that are first-come-first-serve. If you prefer to stay dry there are plenty of loungers around the outside of the pool, and you are only a hop-ski-and-a-jump away from the new Spare Tire food truck, and the Lime & Coconut Bars.

PERFECT STORM WATER PARK | Grab your suite and head to the top of the ship to enjoy the incredible Perfect Storm Waterpark. There are three separate slides to choose from including a fun champagne bowl style slide, and dual racer slides, so you can go head-to-head with a friend and see who wins!

SOLARIUM POOL | For the 18+ passengers onboard who are craving a peaceful pool oasis away from the bustle of the main pool deck- the Solarium pool is here for you. Like the Royal ships before her, Utopia will also feature the adults-only Solarium, offering a pool and lounging deck space, a bar, and a small buffet. It's the perfect way to relax and unwind during the biggest weekend at sea.

SPLASHAWAY BAY | For the little kiddos on the ship, Splashaway Bay is the thrilling splash pad and offers a kid-friendly place to cool down and enjoy a little water fun. The features of Splashaway Bay include water canons, water slides, and a water dump bucket that slowly fills up until it tips over as splashes anyone standing below. Surrounding the splash pad are lounging areas so parents can relax and keep an eye on the kids as they play.

Pool Day Enhancements

SPRINKLES SOFT SERVE | A great way to enjoy a good pool day is with an ice cream in hand! Royal Caribbean's fan favorite Sprinkles Soft Serve will be returning on Utopia, but with the addition of a brand new toppings bar where you can enjoy different kinds of sprinkles and toppings to add to your soft serve.

SPARE TIRE FOOD TRUCK | Brand new to Royal Caribbean- the Spare Tire Food Truck will be making its grand debut on Utopia. This new complimentary dining venue will be conveniently located by the starboard pool for quick, grab-and-go bites in the middle of a day of fun in the sun. Menu items include classic and unique twists on classics from the pulled pork sandwich, to the cheeseburger flatbread, and there will be daily rotating desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth.

LIME & COCONUT BAR | Another Royal Caribbean favorite, the Lime & Coconut Bar will be in a central location on the pool deck, in between the Beach Pool and Main Pools. Enjoy a crisp beer, refreshing island-themed cocktails, and frozen beverages that you can sip on poolside- the ultimate way to beat the heat!
