Royal Caribbean on Tuesday revealed information about its new cruise ship called “Wonders of the Seas”, Which is now under construction at the shipyards in Saint-Nazaire (France) and will be the largest in the world when it begins its tours in the first half of 2022.
With a total tonnage of 236,857 tons, the vessel is 362 meters long, 64 meters wide, has 18 floors and 2867 cabins accommodate up to 6,988 guests.
Maravilla de los mares, which is its Spanish name, will have “the first live garden in the sea, home to more than 20,000 plants, not to mention some specialty restaurants and high-end boutiques,” according to the company. The trail will be at the rear, and it will feature two rock climbing walls, a classic whirlpool and an outdoor water theater.
The swimming pool and sports area will host slides, a jacuzzi and a surfing simulator. There will be basketball and volleyball courts, as well as a miniature golf course. At the same time, it will have a spa and gym, aside from a youth area and a teenage club. The entertainment district will feature platforms where “world-class artists” will perform their main shows, original productions, and even snowboarding.
The launch of the cruise was delayed from 2021 to 2022 due to the impact of the closure of ports and shipyards around the world from the epidemic. Upon completion, it will head straight to Shanghai, China, and become the first Oasis class cruise ship to sail from Asia. Its future lines will include Chan May (Vietnam), Busan and Jeju (South Korea), Cochin and Okinawa (Japan) and Taipei (Taiwan, China). Inaugural season excursions are now open for reservation.
