Utopia of the Seas Construction Update: Construction Begins on Royal Caribbean’s New Oasis Class Ship

April 2022 – A new adventure begins: Construction on the sixth ship in Royal Caribbean International’s revolutionary Oasis Class is now underway in Saint-Nazaire, France. The cruise line revealed the name of the upcoming marvel, Utopia of the Seas, at a steel-cutting ceremony that took place at the Chantiers de l‘Atlantique shipyard. Come spring 2024, the first Oasis Class ship powered by LNG (liquefied natural gas) will be a bold evolution of the class of ships that changed the industry more than a decade ago with the signature combination of Royal Caribbean experiences and brand-new thrills made for guests of all ages. Watch as Utopia’s first piece of steel is cut to mark the start of the 30-month construction process.
