Royal Caribbean International has announced that its First Oasis Class ship in China will set sail on 4- to 9-night cruises to Japan, Vietnam, South Korea from March 2022 through January 2023.

Royal Caribbean International has announced that Wonder of the Seas will set sail from Shanghai and Hong Kong, China in 2022 on 4- to 9-night adventures through the Far East to the best of Japan and more.

Currently under construction in Saint-Nazaire, France, the cruise line says 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.

The itineraries

Guests will be able to enjoy the natural scenery of the islands of Okinawa, Japan.

Between March and November 2022, RCI guests will be able to sail on a roundtrip from Shanghai to Japan, where they can ‘immerse themselves in the local sights and sounds on culture-rich itineraries.’

Wonder will transition to warmer climates and homeport in Hong Kong, November 2022 through January 2023, to offer Christmas and New Year’s holiday sailings to several ports of call.

“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 favor of travelers 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,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.

“It will be a remarkable moment to see years of partnership realised when the industry’s newest, most innovative ship becomes Shanghai’s new city skyline and takes cruise travel beyond imagination.”
