Largest cruise ship in the world – with 19 swimming pools – sets sail

Royal Caribbean’s 236,857GT, 362m long Wonder of the Seas has made its maiden voyage around the Caribbean. Dubbed the largest cruise ship in the world, Wonder of the Seas features 19 swimming pools, 20 restaurants, a casino and its own ‘Central Park’.

The 18-deck cruise ship departed Port Everglades, Florida, and set sail on its inaugural cruise on 4 March.

The cruise ship has capacity for 6,988 guests and 2,300 crew members, and features the ‘tallest slide at sea’, as well as a ten-deck-high zip line and a huge poolside movie screen.

The original plan was for Wonder of the Seas to be homeported in China, but Royal Caribbean decided to redeploy the ship to the USA.

In May 2022, Wonder of the Seas will head to Europe, where she will offer seven-night western Mediterranean cruises from Barcelona and Rome.

Wonder of the Seas will visit Palma de Mallorca, Spain and Capri, Italy and replace Allure of the Seas in the region.
