The pandemic isn’t stopping Royal Caribbean from providing epic experiences for travelers. The major cruise line is building a new cruise shop which when finished, will be the largest cruise ship in the world. 

The Wonder of the Sea is projected to debut in 2022 after delaying it’s original 2021 debut due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

At the beginning of the pandemic, cruise lines were identified as being hot spots resulting in numerous passengers being either stranded, infected quarantined or dead. 

The debut of Royal Caribbean’s The Wonder of the Sea could be what the cruise industry needs to bounce back, financially. 

Cruise goers are also showing signs of being ready to hit the seas again, with 2021 cruise bookings rising despite the rising COVID-19 cases. 

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) in enforcing it’s no-sail order until the end of September. 

The ship has moved to an outfitting doc for the first time since construction began in 2019.

According to an email sent by Lyan Sierra- Caro, Royal Caribbean International’s director of public relations to Business Insider, the ship will be able to accommodate 5,000 passengers and 2,200 crew members.
