Royal Caribbean’s latest new cruise ship, Wonder of the Seas, is on her inaugural voyage in the Caribbean. The new title holder of world’s largest cruise ship, departed Port Everglades, Florida on Friday March 4, 2022 with over 4,000 guests onboard, which by-the-official numbers for this vessel is around 70% capacity at double occupancy.
Wonder of the Seas is the fifth Oasis-Class vessel for Royal Caribbean, following Oasis of the Seas (2009), Allure of the Seas (2010), Harmony of the Seas (2016) and most recently Symphony of the Seas (2018). While she shares much of her core dna with sister ships, Wonder of the Seas received many significant design and structural changes including:
Suite Neighborhood | The new, eighth neighborhood welcomes Royal Suite Class guests to a private Suite Sun Deck in a new location, which features a plunge pool and bar, in addition to favorites such as exclusive restaurant Coastal Kitchen, the Suite Lounge and the grandest Ultimate Family Suite yet for a family of 10.
Wonder Playscape | Day and night, the underwater-themed play area is a whole new, outdoor adventure for families with kids. Slides, climbing walls, games, interactive activities that come alive by touch, imaginative puzzles and light shows engage young travelers in more ways than one. Plus, nearby is Royal Caribbean’s signature mini golf course, Wonder Dunes, with a new look and features.
Caribbean Pool Deck | At the center of the Caribbean vibes is the pool deck, where the new cantilevered Vue Bar joins the lineup of poolside hotspots, including the popular Lime & Coconut, live music; The Perfect Storm, a trio of high-speed waterslides; kids aqua park Splashaway Bay; and the adults-only Solarium.
The Mason Jar Southern Restaurant & Bar | Where Southern comfort food meets Royal Caribbean’s hospitality and creativity. On the menu are staples and new twists on classics for brunch and dinner, and late at night, along with live country music, farmhouse-style decor, a robust collection of 19 American whiskeys and other Southern libations.
Following her initial 7 sailings from Port Everglades, Wonder of the Seas will reposition to the Mediterranean through October 2022, before settling in at her new home of Port Canaveral, Florida. From Port Canaveral, Wonder of the Seas will sail alternating 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries through at least April 2024.
