The biggest cruise ship in the world made a pit stop today in The Bahamas.

Wonder of the Seas arrival Cococay


Wonder of the Seas is Royal Caribbean's fifth Oasis Class cruise ship and it visited the cruise line's private island of Perfect Day at CocoCay on Thursday.

Freedom of the Seas was already at the island for the day, leaving passengers with the first opportunity for the public to see this new ship up close.

RoyalCaribbeanBlog readers Jeanne Fulton, Robert Jaworski and Tracy Tompkins sent in photos of the ship's arrival.

The 5,734-passenger Wonder of the Seas is wrapping up final preparations for her first sailing, which begins next week.

Wonder of the Seas will begin with 7-night Caribbean cruises from Fort Lauderdale in March and April before offering a transatlantic sailing to switch to Mediterranean cruises from Barcelona and Rome (Civitavecchia) beginning in May 2022.

The shop has 8 neighborhoods, as well as other new features such as the Wonder Playscape outdoor interactive play area, Mason Jar Southern-themed restaurant, and The Vue seaside bar.

Like other Oasis Class ships, Wonder of the Seas will also feature favorites such as the Ultimate Abyss slide, FlowRider surfing simulator, and Central Park neighborhood.

Something else that separates Wonder from her Oasis Class sisters is the addition of the Suite Neighborhood, which has an expansive area for suite guests that includes an exclusive sun deck, plunge pool, bar, Coastal Kitchen restaurant and private lounge.

In case you're wondering, Wonder of the Seas is about 8,000 tons larger than Symphony of the Seas, which makes her slightly larger.
