Royal Caribbean’s Wonder of the Seas, the world’s largest cruise ship, will now depart from the United States


Royal Caribbean has announced that the world’s largest cruise ship, Wonder of the Seas, will now debut in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in the spring of 2022 instead of leaving China.

Wonder of the Seas will have its home port in Port Everglades before repositioning itself in Europe where the ship will offer cruises from Barcelona and Rome. Wonder of the Seas will be Royal Caribbean’s fifth Oasis-class ship and will be the world’s largest cruise ship when it debuts next year.

Wonder of the Seas will have eight quarters and include all new features such as the Suite Quarter, a cantilevered pool bar named The Vue, and Wonder Playscape – an interactive outdoor children’s play area with awesome views.

With favorites returning to the deck as well, like The Ultimate Abyss, the tallest water slide at sea; Central Park, the neighborhood filled with real plants from start to finish; and the vibrant Caribbean-inspired pool deck experience, the innovative new ship invites adventurers of all ages to reinvent, explore and create memories once again.

These regions are able to welcome a whole new innovative vessel like Wonder of the Seas, ”said Michael Bayley, President and CEO of Royal Caribbean International. “Wonder will shine brightly as a new wonder of the world in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. And what awaits you is the ultimate vacation experience that showcases the best of Royal Caribbean, reinvents renowned favorites, and presents new adventures that every guest, regardless of age, can enjoy.

The action-packed cruise ship will offer multiple ways to go on an adventure with 7-night crossings to the Eastern and Western Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale, visiting tropical destinations like Cozumel, Mexico; Philipsburg, Saint-Martin; San Juan, Puerto Rico, and more. Whichever route guests choose, each sail will visit Royal Caribbean’s private island destination, Perfect Day at CocoCay, for a day of thrill and relaxation like no other.

In May, the family summer vacation kicks off early when the wonderful Oasis-class ship heads out to the Mediterranean to take center stage for its first European season. Departing from Barcelona and Rome on 7-night Western Mediterranean cruises, travelers book a memorable vacation sailing to the sparkling shores of Europe’s most iconic and historic destinations, such as Palma de Mallorca, Spain and Capri, Italy.

Wonder of the Seas cruises to the Caribbean are now open for bookings and crossings to Europe will open for bookings on September 22, 2021.
