The cruise ship will be two football fields long and carry 3,000 passengers. The new vessel is scheduled to depart from Port Canaveral in 2022.
The “cruise line news” is that the largest cruise ship in the world will sail from Port Canaveral in 2022. The new ship, which has not yet been named, will be able to carry up to 5,000 passengers and 2,000 crew members.
Royal Caribbean’s forthcoming mega-ship, Wonder of the Seas, will homeport at Port Canaveral beginning in November 2022, according to the port’s announcement.
“We’re extremely delighted to have Royal Caribbean’s Wonder of the Seas call Port Canaveral home, and we look forward to welcoming her next autumn,” said Port Canaveral CEO Captain John Murray. “This is fantastic news for our whole Port community and again another affirmation of our commitment to delivering our cruise passengers with a world-class experience.”
The ship, which is the world’s biggest cruise ship, will depart from the port on seven-night eastern and western Caribbean trips.
Cozumel, Mexico; Philipsburg, St. Maarten; and San Juan, Puerto Rico will be among the highlights of the trip. Perfect Day at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s own island in the Bahamas, will be visited on each journey.

In March 2022, the Wonder of the Seas will make her grand premiere, sailing from Fort Lauderdale until mid-spring, when she will relocate to Barcelona to offer Mediterranean cruises for the summer. Royal Caribbean had planned to station the ship in China when it was initially announced, but that idea was scrapped.
Royal Caribbean’s fifth Oasis-class ship, and the fourth to make Port Canaveral home, will be the Wonder of the Seas. Oasis, Allure, Harmony, and Symphony of the Seas are the other ships in the class.

The public areas of the Wonder of the Seas will be separated into eight “neighborhoods,” one more than any previous Oasis-class ship to date. The new area will be known as the Suite Neighborhood, and it will be reserved for those staying in suites.

A cantilevered pool bar named The Vue, an open-air kids’ play area called Wonder Playscape, The Ultimate Abyss slide, rock climbing walls, a zip line, and a hand-crafted carousel are among the ship’s other attractions.
At Adventure Ocean, Social100, and The Patio, there will be a Caribbean-inspired pool deck, a Central Park neighborhood filled with thousands of actual plants, and specific places for youngsters and adolescents.
