RCI-Royal Caribbean's newest liner Wonder of the Seas (the world's ever-largest cruise ship) will homeport at Port Canaveral (Orlando, Florida) beginning November 2022.

Wonder OTS will offer 7-night itineraries to the eastern & western Caribbean. Destinations include Cozumel (Quintana Roo Mexico, Riviera Maya), Philipsburg (St Maarten Island, Dutch Antilles), and San Juan (Puerto Rico). Each voyage will visit Royal Caribbean’s private Bahamian island CocoCay, which boasts from the tallest waterslide in North America to the first floating cabanas in The Bahamas.

Port CEO's Captain John Murray said they were very proud to have RCI’s Wonder OTS homeport there, and looked forward to welcoming her next fall.

“This is terrific news for our entire Port community and another endorsement of our commitment to excellence in providing a world-class experience for our cruise guests.”

Wonder OTS will be the 5th RCI Oasis-class boat and the 4th homeported in Port Canaveral.

The 2022-built Wonder OTS is the 3rd RCI "Oasis-Plus" class liner, with sisterships Harmony OTS (2016), Symphony OTS (2018) and TBN OTS (2023).

Wonder OTS just slightly exceeds in size the original Oasis-class vessels Oasis OTS (2009) and Allure OTS (2010).

The vessel has a building cost of US$1,35 billion (2019 shiporder rates).
