Royal Caribbean International has released new photos of its brand-new mega ship, Wonder of the Seas.
For the first time, the Oasis-class vessel will be divided into eight neighborhoods (as opposed to seven like its sister ships), with the addition of the Suite Neighborhood just for suite guests. It will also feature a brand-new southern-inspired specialty restaurant called The Mason Jar.
Let’s take a look at some of the spaces on Wonder of the Seas.
Below, we have the Caribbean pool deck, which includes the Splashaway Bay kids’ water park and a trio of waterslides called The Perfect Storm. Poolside bar The Lime & Coconut will play host to DJs and live bands throughout the voyage, as bartenders serve up classic Caribbean cocktails.
Next up is The Vue Bar, a new poolside bar with some of the best views anywhere on the ship.
The cantilevered deck is perfect for taking in the sunset as the mosaic canopy comes alive at dusk. Royal Caribbean recommends the bar’s signature drink: a combo of champagne, strawberry gin, Campari liqueur, and orange juice that looks like a sunset in a glass. Fitting!
Wonder Playscape is an all-new underwater-themed play area for kids, featuring things like slides, tic tac toe, climbing walls, puzzles, and an interactive mural of sea creatures that comes to life by touch and light shows.
Next to Wonder Playscape is Wonder Dunes, an underwater-themed mini-golf course featuring colorful characters throughout.
Now let’s check out Royal Caribbean’s newest specialty restaurant — The Mason Jar. This venue will be open for brunch, dinner, and late-night bites, serving things like the Sweet-Tooth Cinnamon Roll, savory johnnycakes with barbecue pulled pork, crab beignets with lump crab dip, shrimp and grits, and Southern fried chicken.
With live country music, and a bar at the center that’s home to 19 American whiskeys, spiked floats and shakes, and Southern cocktails, The Mason Jar is sure to be a favorite among many guests.
Like Royal Caribbean’s most recent Oasis-class vessel Symphony of the Seas, Wonder of the Seas will feature The Ultimate Family Suite. But on this ship, it’s part of the ship’s brand-new Suite Neighborhood.
Families of up to 10 can enjoy two floors featuring a LEGO wall, a gaming table, a cinema and karaoke area, piano stairs, and a two-story slide. For even larger families or groups, there’s a connecting Loft Suite.Ultimate Family Suite (Photo courtesy of Royal Caribbean)
The two photos below are of the Suite Sun Deck with plunge pool, another part of the Suite Neighborhood. The exclusive neighborhood includes a private bar, the Coastal Kitchen restaurant, and a lounge.
And finally, here’s a photo of The Patio outdoor space at Social100 — which is the ship’s teen’s club area. The Patio overlooks the Caribbean pool deck, and features jumbo games, reading nooks, lounges, and a hot tub. Plus, during special hours, teens can visit their own “bar” that serves non-alcoholic cocktails and shakes.
Wonder of the Seas is scheduled to set sail on her inaugural voyage this Friday, March 4 out of Port Everglades in Florida.
