The next of Royal Caribbean's Oasis Class ships will be named Wonder of the Seas and set sail from Shanghai – its year-round home.

The next ship to join the leading cruise line’s innovative lineup will be named Wonder of the Seas and set sail from Shanghai – its year-round home.

Under construction in Saint-Nazaire, France, Wonder of the Seas will be the next ship in Royal Caribbean's lineup of innovative ships.  She will debut in 2021 as the world's largest cruise ship and the first of the renowned Oasis Class to sail the Asia Pacific.

Wonder of the Seas also reached an important milestone at its shipyard, where the ship's keel was lowered into place at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard, marking the start of the ship’s physical construction. During what is known as the keel-laying ceremony, a 970-ton block, measuring 155 feet by 65 feet, was lifted onto the building dock with a 1,400-ton crane.

"Royal Caribbean is known for its innovation and constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, and an Oasis Class ship in China is proof of that," said Bayley. “Wonder of the Seas will redefine the ultimate vacation and be revolutionary in her own right, and she marks one of Royal Caribbean’s most exciting chapters to come."

More information on Wonder’s itineraries and brand-new adventures will be announced soon.
