The “Wonder of the Seas” has a length of 362 meters

The world’s largest cruise ship is called “Wonder of the Seas” and has now set sail after three years of construction. Higher, wider, bigger – the ship resembles a city and offers space for an incredible 7000 passengers. Pictures show the size of the ship.

Mhe “Wonder of the Seas”, the largest cruise ship in the world, set sail in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Friday. The ship of the US shipping company Royal Caribbean offers space for almost 7,000 passengers on 18 floors.

The colossus has a number of attractions to offer guests such as 19 pools, 20 restaurants, three water slides, an indoor ice rink, a climbing park, a surfing simulator that produces waves three meters high, or a 500,000 liter aqua theater.

The restaurants are arranged along a long boardwalk similar to that at Coney Island in New York City. The ship appears more like a small town. A special feature is the “Central Park”, a green area with 20,000 plants and trees in the middle of the ship.

The sheer size is also unbelievable: The “Wonder of the Seas” is 362 meters long and thus longer than the Eiffel Tower in Paris (300 meters), reports the “Daily Mail“. For comparison: the “Aidasol” is 252 meters long. At 70 meters, it is also almost 20 meters taller than the “Titanic”.

There is no reason to get out, said one passenger. And one passenger said jokingly, “We’re going to need a bigger ocean!”

In addition, the ship has some extras: The Rising Tide Bar is a moving platform on which guests’ chairs can slide from deck 5 to deck 8. And on the Royal Promenade, robots pour cocktails at the Bionic Bar. The 30 meter long slide takes you from deck 16 to deck 6 in 13 seconds.

The giant ship was built in three years at a cost of 1.2 billion dollars in Saint-Nazaire, France. The “Wonder of the Seas” will be sailing in the Caribbean until April 2022, and from May she will then be cruising through the Mediterranean.

According to the Daily Mail, Royal Caribbean says bookings are back to pre-pandemic levels. The ship was supposed to set sail in China last year, but the plans had to be postponed due to Corona.
