Royal Caribbean has carved a name for itself as counting some of the biggest cruise ships on the planet among its fleet.

Now, the largest vessel of all - Wonder of the Seas - is set to make its way to Europe next year - and bookings open today!

The highly anticipated cruise ship is set to sail from its home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida to the Caribbean on March 4, 2022.

Wonder of the Seas will then make its way to Barcelona and Rome to kick off summer holidays in May.

The hotel at sea was initially due to debut in China but Covid restrictions have forced the line to relocate the ship.

“Wonder will shine bright as the world’s newest wonder in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean," said Michael Bayley, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International.

"And what’s in store is the ultimate vacation experience that highlights the very best of Royal Caribbean, reimagines renowned favourites and introduces new adventures every guest, no matter their age, can enjoy.”
