Royal Caribbean International’s Wonder of the Seas will set sail from Shanghai and Hong Kong, China in 2022 on 4-night to 9-night adventures through the Far East to Japan and more.
Currently under construction in Saint-Nazaire, France, Wonder will be the world’s largest cruise ship and the first of its kind to call China home when it arrives in March 2022.
The ship’s inaugural season cruises are now open for bookings.
Between March and November, the Wonder of the Seas will sail roundtrip from Shanghai to Japan, before transitioning to warmer climates and homeport in Hong Kong from November 2022 through January 2023 and offering Christmas and New Year’s holiday sailings.
Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, said: “China continues to be one of the most important parts of the world for Royal Caribbean. We have won the trust of our partners and the favour of travellers and built on that significantly since we first set sail 12 years ago. By introducing Wonder of the Seas and the iconic Oasis Class to China, our strong commitment to the market’s growth is reaffirmed yet again for years to come.”
Bayley added: “It will be a remarkable moment to see years of partnership realized when the industry’s newest, most innovative ship becomes Shanghai’s new city skyline and takes cruise travel beyond imagination.”
