2024 is the year of Royal Caribbean! Not only did Icon of the Seas make her debut in January to huge applause, but the last Oasis Class Ship Utopia of the Seas will be introduced to the world this summer, taking cruise passengers on 3 and 4 night cruises of the Caribbean out of Port Canaveral. She is slated to be the best Oasis ship yet, with bigger ways to splash, bigger ways to party, and bigger ways to dine.

Royal has hinted at the incredible onboard water fun that guests will be able to enjoy on Utopia, from the 5 different pools, to the many incredible hot tubs, waterpark, and so much more.

Pools, Water Slides & Splash Pads

MAIN POOLS | These two pools sit right across from each other, one on port, one on starboard. The Lime & Coconut Bars are just next door, and there are plenty of dry lounge chairs, as well as loungers in the water to cool off and relax. This is also where you will find the brand new Spare Tire food truck, where you can grab delicious bites to enjoy poolside.

SUITE SUNDECK POOL | Relax in the pools on the top deck, reserved for Star and Sky class guests only. This key-card access space is a sundeck with plenty of loungers, daybeds, and a pool and hottub for suite guests to enjoy, away from the rest of the ship.

SPLASHAWAY BAY | Kids of all ages can have a great time at the splash pad on Utopia. Splashaway Bay offers several fun water slides, water features, and a dump bucket that slowly fills up and tips over, soaking guests below.

THE PERFECT STORM WATER PARK | 3 incredible water slides will be on Utopia. There will be 2 racer slides side by side, so you can go head-to-head with a friend and see who is the fastest. There is also a champagne bowl slide that will shoot you out into the large bowl to slide around in circles before the final drop.
