The video below is showing the latest update on the construction of RCI-Royal Caribbean's Wonder of the Seas - the world's largest cruise ship ever, in St-Nazaire France - at Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard (fka STX France).

Wonder OTS is expected to become the 5th ship in Royal Caribbean’s Oasis Class when she debuts in March next year, building on the signature features the unmatched liners have touted since first revolutionizing the industry over a decade ago.

The 6360-passenger ship Wonder OTS comprises 7 neighborhoods - Royal Promenade, Central Park, Boardwalk, Entertainment Zone, Sports Zone, Youth Center complex, Wellness complex. Wonder and Symphony are currently the world's largest passenger ships - with GT tonnage 228,100 tons (or 1000+ tons larger than Harmony OTS). Wonder also has 28 more staterooms, the new RCI "Family Suite" (2-level / on 2 decks), redesigned Boardwalk area.

In comparison to the original Oasis-Class sisterships, Wonder OTS, Harmony OTS and Symphony OTS are heavier (by 1700+ tons), 3-m wider, with bigger capacity (accommodate 100 more passengers/per unit). Wonder is nearly 330 ft (101 m) longer than RMS Titanic and 165 ft (50 m) longer than Eiffel Tower (Paris City). The liner has several Promenades, two FlowRiders, two rock-climbing walls, ice-skating rink, world's largest theatre at sea. "The Ultimate Abyss" waterslide swings down 10 decks, at over 150 ft (46 m) above sea level.
