A noticeable upgrade is the glass backdrop on the ship’s aqua theater. Previous ships have had the canvas panels in this section.

The ultimate vacation will first set sail on 7-night cruises to the Caribbean and Royal Caribbean’s private island destination, Perfect Day at CocoCay in The Bahamas, from Port Everglades, starting on March 4, 2022, before heading to Barcelona, Spain, and Rome to kick off summer vacations in the Mediterranean in May 2022. In November, Wonder returns to explore the tropical shores of the Caribbean and The Bahamas from its year-round home, Port Canaveral, Florida.

There is no denying that with the addition of all of the new features and experiences, the Wonder of the Seas will be the place to be for vacationing families.
