The world's largest cruise ship will call Port Canaveral and the Central Florida area home next winter.

Royal Caribbean announced the soon-to-be-launched Wonder of the Seas will be based in Port Canaveral between November 2022 and April 2023.

From Port Canaveral, Wonder of the Seas will offer sailings to the Eastern Caribbean, including stops at Perfect Day at CocoCay.

The cruise line says the new sailings open later today.

Wonder of the Seas was already scheduled to spend summer 2022 in Europe, and at the conclusion of her season there, she will transition to Port Canaveral to begin her winter season from Florida.

Wonder of the Seas is finalizing the construction process before she debuts in March 2022 from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The inaugural sailing of Wonder of the Seas is scheduled for March 2022. Wonder will spend a few months in South Florida before heading to Europe in May 2022.

Wonder of the Seas is the fifth Oasis Class cruise ship and will take away of world's largest cruise ship from Symphony of the Seas when she debuts.

Wonder is 236,857 gross tons, measures 1,188 feet in length, and has a maximum passenger capacity of 6,988 passengers, in addition to 2,300 crew.

In fact, Wonder has 100 cabins more than Symphony of the Seas.

Another difference between Wonder of the Seas and other Oasis Class ships is the addition of an eighth neighborhood to offer a private suite area onboard the ship. It will feature an exclusive deck with its own pool, bar and plenty of sun loungers, as well as nooks for lounging.
