Utopia of the Seas, Royal Caribbean’s sixth Oasis Class vessel, will offer guests more than 40 ways to drink and dine. From the brand-new immersive train car dining experience to brand favorites such as Sorrento’s and Park Café, there’s no shortage of options, both complimentary and specialty, to indulge in. Whether you are craving a quick hot dog or want to sit down and enjoy omakase at Izumi, there’s something to appease all preferences and tastes. Here is your ultimate guide to all the food and beverage options on Utopia of the Seas. What restaurants are included & what costs extra?When planning your cruise onboard Utopia, it’s important to understand what restaurants are and are not included in the cost of your cruise fare. It is possible to not spend a penny extra on dining while onboard your 3- or 4-night cruise. However, there are some pretty amazing specialty options that you can’t find on other ships in the fleet, such as Royal Railway – Utopia Station.

While sailing through your ocean, you’ll simultaneously be transported to different times and places, from America’s Wild West to remote destinations across the globe.
