Utopia of the Seas begins sea trials

SINGAPORE, 13 May 2024: Royal Caribbean International’s Utopia of the Seas is almost ready for its debut as the next in the lineup of Oasis Class ships embarked on its open ocean sea trials on 10 May, just 10 weeks ahead of the new vacation’s homecoming party and official introduction in Port Canaveral (Orlando), Florida, in July 2024.

More than 900 specialists in naval architecture, engineering, navigation and design are on Utopia to push the ship to its limits and ensure it’s ready for smooth sailing. 

The teams are carrying out tests on how the ship moves through the open water and the operation of its navigation systems, as well as engine performance and back-of-house technical checks. The trials will cover more than 1,000 miles over five days, and once completed, the ship will enter the final phase of construction at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France.

Starting 19 July 19, Utopia will welcome vacationers on three-night weekend and four-night weekday cruises.
