January 29, 2022
Royal Caribbean have taken delivery of their most innovative ship yet. Aptly named Wonder of the Seas, this highly anticipated ship has taken 3 years to complete and is packed full of new and exciting features.
“Taking delivery of Wonder of the Seas is the culmination of 30 months of ingenuity and
partnership across more than 2,000 committed crew members and workers who are among the best at
what they do,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “Along with
taking the revolutionary Oasis Class ships to a new level of wonder, innovation and adventure, Wonder
sets the stage for the spring and summer vacations families and all travelers alike are looking forward to
in the new year. The combination of brand-new features and favorites that span thrills, entertainment,
dining and nightlife is unparalleled, and it’s what will make our latest and most innovative ship the
world’s newest wonder and the ultimate vacation in the Caribbean and Europe.”
Wonder Of the Seas is bigger and bolder than any other Royal Caribbean Ship, featuring 8 unique neighbourhood’s including the new Suite Neighbourhood.
Suite Neighborhood – The new, eighth neighborhood offers Royal Suite Class guests an
elevated Suite Sun Deck in a new location, complete with a plunge pool, bar and plenty of
loungers and nooks to kick back; along with favorites such as Coastal Kitchen, the private
restaurant; the Suite Lounge, and the largest Ultimate Family Suite yet to host a family of 10.
Some the other newest feature include:
The Mason Jar Southern Restaurant & Bar – The new hotspot serves up southern staples and
new twists on classics for brunch, dinner and in the late night, including savory johnnycakes,
southern fried chicken, crab beignets, and shrimp and grits. Completing the experience is live
country music, farmhouse-style decor, a collection of American whiskeys and spiked shakes.
Wonder Playscape – The underwater-themed play area for kids is a whole new adventure with
slides, climbing walls, games, an interactive mural activated by touch and imaginative puzzles.
The Vue Bar – The happiest of happy hours can be found at the new cantilevered bar that offers
panoramic ocean views by day, and after sunset, it shines bright with a colorful mosaic canopy.
Caribbean Pool Deck – At the center of the Caribbean vibes is The Lime & Coconut, alongside
the trio of high-speed waterslides, The Perfect Storm; kids aqua park Splashaway Bay, Casitas,
in-pool loungers, live music; and more.
El Loco Fresh and Cantina Fresca – The grab-and-go spot for Mexican delights, like made-to-order tacos, burritos and quesadillas, now debuts Cantina Fresca. The dedicated bar serves a
selection of “aguas frescas,” margaritas and other Mexican staples
Wonder of the Seas also retains passenger favourites including; Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar, the tallest slide at sea, The Ultimate Abyss; a newly designed, dedicated kids and teens spaces at Adventure Ocean, Social100 , The Patio; the FlowRider surf simulator, twin rock-climbing walls and of course the Central Park neighborhood lined by more than 20,000 real plants.

November 2022, when the newest addition to the Royal Caribbean lineup cruises to the
Caribbean from Port Canaveral. The destinations in store range from Perfect Day at CocoCay and Philipsburg, St. Maarten, to Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; and Cozumel, Mexico
I’m a huge fan of Oasis Class Ships, I love the exciting features particularly the Royal Promenade and Boardwalk but I think the reason I truly love them is, they are a multi-generational class of ship with something onboard to allow everyone to have their own wonderful holiday. From Newborns to 109, everyone can have a special time onboard. Whilst the ships are colossal, once onboard because it has it’s own unique neighbourhoods each area has it’s own feel and is more like a small resort just without the taxis!!
