Thus meaning Wonder Of The Seas, which is currently the largest cruise ship in the world, is jam packed with activities to keep cruisers of all ages busy from tots to right through to adults.

The thing I really love about Royal Caribbean is their ability to channel crowds so you never or very rarely get bottle necks. There is so much going on all over the ship that people are spread out. Not many cruise lines achieve this like Royal do.

Our Thoughts On Wonder Of The Seas

Obviously we can’t review the ship, however what we do know is Wonder Of The Seas is exciting! Royal Caribbean have looked at what works on Symphony of the Seas and tweaked it. Thus making the largest cruise ship in the world innovative and exciting. It will be interesting to see if separating the suite area works. I have a suite booked for next year and can’t wait to find out if this is a positive move or not?

The beach area and Vue bar looks fabulous, and so much fun. But it’s also great to see the main pool area is separated to offer a less chaotic area. Dining is plentiful, you are never going to go hungry. And lastly the kids are never going to get bored there is something for all ages, family shows, play areas, sports and activities.
