Royal Caribbean’s Wonder of the Seas has arrived in Barcelona to kick off a summer of voyages in the Mediterranean.
The world’s largest cruise ship will operate seven-night voyages from Barcelona, Spain and Civitavecchia (the port for Rome) in Italy beginning Sunday, May 8. Destinations will include Florence, Naples, Capri, Provence, and Malaga.
Highlights of Wonder of the Seas that are exclusive to this ship include:
For the first time, an Oasis-class ship has eight neighborhoods instead of seven. Wonder of the Seas introduced the Suite Neighborhood, which is exclusively for those staying in the Royal Suite Class.
It includes a private sundeck with plunge pool and bar, an exclusive restaurant called Coastal Kitchen, the Suite Lounge, and the grandest Ultimate Family Suite yet — able to accommodate a family of 10.

Wonder of the Seas features a lineup of original entertainment across its four “stages:” air, ice, water, and theater.

A superhero-filled show called The Effectors II: Crash ‘n’ Burn is set to debut this summer.
Wonder of the Seas’ western Mediterranean cruises will continue through October — one of eight Royal Caribbean ships sailing in Europe this coming season.
In November, the vessel will return to the U.S. to sail from its new year-round home in Port Canaveral. From there, the ship will operate Caribbean and Bahamas voyages, which will include calls to Royal’s private island Perfect Day at CocoCay.
