Wonder of the Seas to Call Port Canaveral Home and more Royal Caribbean News

Royal Caribbeans’ Wonder of the Seas is now sailing Caribbean cruises out of Port Canaveral.

Wonder of the Seas has sailed previously out of Europe and Fort Lauderdale but Royal Caribbean has moved its fifth Oasis Class ship to Port Canaveral for at least two years. Wonder of the Seas is currently the world’s largest cruise ship.

Port Canaveral celebrated Sunday night with a special send-off for the ship. In a social media post, Port Canaveral said,  “Many folks braved the pouring rain to welcome Royal Caribbean International’s Wonder of the Seas home to Port Canaveral as our newest homeported ship.  Water from the sky and from our tugs and Fireboat2 gave the magnificent Wonder a water salute as she set sail from Port Canaveral.”

Royal Caribbean is bringing back its popular adults-only game The Quest.

According to passengers, The Quest is reappearing on some sailings. The Quest is a racy scavenger hunt that is an adults-only activity. The popular game disappeared from Royal Caribbean cruise ships due to the pandemic and had not returned until now. 

No official announcement has been made by Royal Caribbean, but guests have reported playing the game aboard Brilliance of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas, Grandeur of the Seas, and the cruise line’s largest ship Wonder of the Seas. The event was reported during the ship’s transatlantic sailing from Europe to Port Canaveral.

In other news from Royal Caribbean, it is celebrating 30 years of Save the Waves this month. Save the Waves is Royal Caribbean’s first environmental intiative and helps to protect the ecology of the oceans.

Royal Caribbean is committed to sustainability as can been seen in its new state-of-the-art zero-energy cruise terminal in Galveston, Texas. The terminal is the first LEED-certified facility in the world that received 100% of its energy through onsite solar panels,
