O5 named Wonder Of The Seas - sailing from Asia

Recommended Posts

Saw this on a couple Facebook groups.  No supporting links yet.  Only one photo that is not a Q class but the rendering looks different from Current Oasis class ships.  3 am local time so not much to check for confirmation.  I'm sure it is middle of the day half way across the world.  Please delete if this is just inter webs misinformation.

Wonder of the Seas will be the 5th Oasis-class ship and the largest cruise ship in the world when she launches in 2021 and she will sail from Shanghai. Her announcement is in conjunction with RCCL China’s 10th anniversary.

I wonder what will become of Quantum.  

I’m thinking Quantum could follow into the same path as Ovation in doing AU / US West Coast or Voyager gets sent to the US and Quantum takes over her itineraries.

There rumblings of a 4,000 passenger ship coming to California.  Splitting Quantum between Australia and California, Ovation between Australia and Alaska.  Hmmm.  Interesting times coming this fall as more 2021 itineraries are announced.

Well that is disappointing if that is true...

Yeah, that would be. Was hoping that Oasis5 might sneak in on the new listings in a couple of weeks. Which might happen but not in a useful way.

What a blah name... I’ve already sailed on the Wonder (Disney Wonder). Lol! 

Likely more meaning in regional context.  

It seems while other lines have had limited success in Asia, Royal continues to see an uptick.  

Note she has no Abyss slides and the Aqua theater in this rendering doesn't appear consistent with her sisters.  Decks 17 & 18 seem different as well.

The Suez transit should be interesting.  Largest cruise ship ever.

Very true re: regional context.

Glad it isn't Melody of the Seas. I like Wonder of the Seas much better

With all these developments in Royal's Asian market, I hope we don't see a decline in the offerings and services in the US market.

It Looks Like It Has No Flowrider Too!!

AT looks different, but the Abyss is definitely there. Same with the FlowRider but there’s only one on the port side.

It’s very unlikely that will happen. Especially because RCCL China operates like a completely different company to Royal Caribbean International. For example, Royal Caribbean International has The Key while RCCL China has Royal Premier which is the same yet completely different.

Zero reason to link a ship going to an emerging market with an impact to an existing market.

With the North American market predicted to head into a recession why wouldn't they put a ship in a market that will be able to support it while North America is struggling?  Smart business - diversify.   When one region is soft the company isn't at risk.
