After a full summer schedule in Europe, Royal Caribbean International’s Wonder of the Seas makes her Port Canaveral debut today.
Returning to the United States after debuting in the country in March, the Royal Caribbean International ship completes a 14-night transatlantic.
Ahead of its first full season in the Caribbean, the two-week repositioning cruise departed Barcelona and included visits to four additional ports in Spain: Palma de Mallorca, Valencia, Cartagena and Malaga.
Before arriving in Florida, the ship also paid a visit to Nassau, Bahamas.
Now ready to sail from Port Canaveral on a weekly basis, the Oasis-class vessel will offer a year-round cruise schedule in the Western and Eastern Caribbean.
For her first sailing from central Florida, the Wonder offers a seven-night itinerary to the Eastern Caribbean.
In addition to three full days at sea, the trip includes visits to St. Thomas, St. Maarten, and Perfect Day at CocoCay.
The highlight of the rollout, Royal Caribbean International’s private island in the Bahamas is expected to feature on most Wonder cruises.
Other destinations that will be visited by the 5,448-passenger ship include Cozumel, Costa Maya, Roatán, Labadee, San Juan, Falmouth and more.
Built in 2022, the Wonder is the company’s latest Oasis-class ship and debuted as the world’s largest cruise ship.
After the Oasis of the Seas built in 2009, the Allure of the Seas built in 2010, the Harmony of the Seas built in 2016 and the Symphony of the Seas built in 2018, the ship launched new features, such as a range of over 20 dining venues including the brand new The Mason Jar Southern Restaurant & Bar.
With a menu of Southern staples and new takes on classics, the venue features live music, a collection of over a dozen American whiskeys and more.
Completing the series of ships, a sixth Oasis-class vessel, Utopia of the Seas, is set to debut in 2024.
