The world’s largest cruise ship is scheduled to set sail from Port Canaveral in 2022.
The vessel named, Wonder of the Seas will have capacity for approximately 7,000 guests, plus 2,300 crew members.
The Port Canaveral choice was not a coincidence. This port is already known for housing some of the largest ships in the world. Port Canaveral’s CEO, Captain John Murray, said he believes that the ship will be able to be filled to its capacity from the selected port, which is one of the reasons why Port Canaveral was chosen.
The Wonder of the Seas is the latest addition to Royal Caribbean’s Oasis family of ships. The vessel will feature a Playscape for younger passengers, climbing walls and pools, water slides and simulators, such as the Ultimate Abyss and FlowRider, and an AquaTheater.
The Wonder of the Seas will sail along both the Caribbean and Mediterranean coasts, stopping at ports along the way known to house favorite surfing locations, off-road vehicle trails, and golf courses. Passengers will be able to tour the Historic Cocoa Village, the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, and the Exploration Tower.
Royal Caribbean has announced that the Wonder of the Seas will begin Caribbean cruises in March 2022. The vessel will then tour the Mediterranean coast, sailing along both Spain and Italy, in May 2022. Bookings are now available on Royal Caribbean’s website for both seven-night and five-night cruise packages.
