The next Royal Caribbean's Oasis Class cruise ship will be named Wonder of the Seas. The world's newest largest passenger liner is scheduled for year-round operations from homeport Shanghai China.

Under construction in Saint-Nazaire (STX France), Wonder OTS is the 5th Oasis-class vessel debuting in 2021-Q3 as the largest cruise ship deployed year-round in the Asia Pacific region, and specifically in China.

Wonder OTS reached a major milestone at her shipyard, where the keel of the ship was lowered into place at Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard, marking the beginning of vessel's actual construction process. During the keel-laying, a 970-ton midship hull block (155 by 65 feet) was lifted on the building-dock by a 1,400-ton gantry crane.
