The countdown is on – American singer Meghan Trainor who has been named godmother to Royal Caribbean’s new Utopia of the Seas, will host the ultimate pre-celebratory concert when the ship kicks off her debut getaway next week.

Trainor will perform ‘live’ onboard Utopia when the ship calls at RCI’s private island destination, Perfect Day at CocoBay in the Bahamas. The three-night weekend cruise will take place before Utopia officially set sails on her maiden journey departing Port Canaveral in Florida on 19 July.

Kicking off the three-night celebrations, Trainor will officially name Utopia after her exclusive show at the open-air Aqua Theatre. Specially invited guests will have a lineup of unique experiences including 40 ways to dine, drink and party. They will also experience the Royal Railway – the first-of-its-kind immersive train car dining experience. There will also be other show-stopping entertainment featuring air, ice, water and stage.

“This is the short getaway that all’s about celebrations, celebrating friends, family, family and the memories you make together,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO of RCI.

“Meghan embodies that in every way, from who she is to how she shares her music with the world, making her the perfect godmother to match Utopia’s big weekend energy. We’re thrilled to welcome her to the family and host a party of epic proportions fit for the ultimate short getaway,” he added.
