Royal Caribbean's Wonder of the Seas has officially set sail and this ship is a "stop what you're doing, let's plan a vacation" adventure at sea. Recently a handful of our agents, along with our owner, Jen Kistler, climbed aboard this beautiful vessel and had a wonderful time getting to know this soon-to-be fan-favorite vessel. That's why we wanted to make sure you had the 4-1-1 on what is easily one of the best boats to join the RCCL fleet.
Considered the "Biggest Ship in the World" (currently that is ...because ICONic things are on the horizon for RCCL), this Port Canaveral based ship isn't just another day at sea. From fan faves, like the FlowRider® surf simulator to "all-new adventures designed to change the way you play," the Wonder of the Seas is something the entire family can love.
Like any other ship, the Wonder of the Seas has a wide variety of categories of staterooms to choose from. From inside staterooms to verandahs, to suites that will blow your mind, there's plenty of rooms that will fit the needs of any travel party.
This ship also features some very unique staterooms that we want to highlight.
Welcome to the all-new Suite Neighborhood, high up on the ship's prime location where you can discover totally VIP experiences just steps away from your Star Suite or Sky Suite. Here, you can indulge in five-star dining at the exclusive Coastal Kitchen! Or step onto the brand-new Suite Sun Deck to soak up unparalleled ocean views from a crystal-clear plunge pool and sip tantalizing cocktails expertly crafted at a bar just for you.
But that's not all the suites available on the Wonder of the Seas, check these beauties out:

And we're still not done showing suites! Take a look at the Ultimate Family Suite also located inside the "Suite Neighborhood."
"Welcome to the perfect spot to rest your head after a day spent discovering record-breaking thrills, spectacular shows and palette-pleasing flavors. Serving up spectacular views and deluxe amenities, this stateroom is an alluring escape from the non-stop action our ships are known for — and the perfect place to recharge in between adventures. "

Fun in the Sun
No Royal Caribbean ship is complete without plenty of places to have fun in the sun and the Wonder of the Seas definitely delivers this trait! Here you can not only enjoy time on the Flowrider, wall climb like on other RCCL ships, but your family can also explore ALL THIS:
The Wonder Playscape
"Ditch the same-old neighborhood playground for a whole new way to explore. The all-new Wonder Playscape℠ is studded with slides, climbing walls, games and puzzles where adventurers of all ages can discover an underwater world with endless possibilities."
The Ultimate Abyss and The Perfect Storm
"Step to the edge, peer into the darkness and take the plunge 10 stories down the tallest slide at sea, Ultimate Abyss℠ — if you're brave enough. Or take on the twisting, turning, adrenaline-pumping waterslide trio The Perfect Storm℠."
Time for a Splash
"It's all about that vacay wade of life at the redesigned pool deck on the all-new Wonder of the Seas. Soak up the sun, chill in the shade, get your adrenaline fix, or grab a cocktail from the two-story poolside bar The Lime & Coconut℠. And for the ultimate pool day upgrade, reserve one of our private poolside casitas."
Included with your sailing comes access to one-of-a-kind shows at sea. From ice skating performances to shows in Royal Caribbean's special amphitheater, the AquaTheatre, this boat has plenty of "WOW" to go around.
One of the things that will really have your heart pumping is "inTENse."
"This is where water meets drama. Olympic-level high divers leap high into the air, performing mesmerizing stunts and aerial acrobatics and finishing with a perfect dive into the deepest pool at sea. With two 30-foot diving platforms, stunning ocean views, and 137,000 gallons of water, the AquaTheater adds to the edge-of-your-seat-inducing entertainment line-up onboard our amazing ships."
On the Wonder of the Seas, sailing on an empty stomach is never an issue.
In addition to the main dining that takes place nightly, your tastebuds will be overjoyed with some of the fun things you can try on your sailing. That's because this ship has food options galore. Let's take a look at some of the highlights of this ship's specialty dining.
