Fuel Your Little One’s Imagination At Wonder Playscapesm

Though the cruise line caters to all kinds of getaways — including romantic couple’s escapes, bachelor and bachelorette parties and beyond — Royal Caribbean really shines when it comes to family-friendly vacations guests of all ages can enjoy. The new Wonder of the Seas lives up to this reputation. It’s home to the Wonder Playscape, a first for the brand that is sure to wow the littlest adventurers. This epic, underwater-themed fun zone has colorful slides, climbing walls, mind-bending puzzles and interactive games designed to keep children engaged for hours. At night, the playground shimmers to life with fantastical, otherworldly lighting. Admission is free for all children onboard Wonder of the Seas. 

Perfect Your Putt Putt Game At Wonder Dunes

Practice your golf stance and swing at a reimagined take on a longtime Royal Caribbean mainstay — Wonder Dunes. Just like the Wonder Playscape, this sprawling, open-air mini golf course was designed with an undersea theme. Sea snails with racing stripes, sentinel turtles, larger-than-life jellyfish and a giant octopus guard the holes on this wild, watery course, which is surrounded by captivating ocean views on all sides. Tee up under the sun or the stars with the whole family and see for yourself why Wonder Dunes is one of guests favorite free things to do onboard the newest Oasis Class ship.

Hang Ten On The Flowrider* Surf Simulator

Wonder of the Seas boasts several classic Royal Caribbean attractions, and the FlowRider* is one of the top rated. No matter where your vacation takes you, you can always count on perfect swells on this 40-foot-long surf simulator. The waves are created by 30,000 gallons of rushing water, which you can tackle upright on your feet or boogie-style on your belly. And it’s flanked by stadium-style seating, so friends and family can cheer you on as you try your best not to wipe out. Rides on the FlowRider* are included in your cruise fare, so you can keep on shredding until hanging ten comes effortlessly to you. 

Conquer The Perfect Stormsm Waterslides

Those who know Royal Caribbean know the cruise line goes all out when it comes to water slides and rides — and The Perfect Storm is the ultimate example. This trio of twisting, turning, thrill-inducing slides will have you shrieking from the adrenaline rush as you race to the bottom of each. Buddy up with someone brave and take on the dual racers in a white-knuckle test of speed and mettle. Or get ready for hair-raising highs and lows on the first-ever boomerang-style water slide at sea. Rides are free to cruise guests, so you can keep the thrills going strong all vacation long.

Brave The Ten-story Drop On The Ultimate Abysssm

If you’re still craving thrills after riding The Perfect Storm, don’t worry — Wonder of the Seas has plenty more exhilarating onboard attractions to keep you feeling the rush. One guest favorite — and another of the cruise line’s greatest hits — is the Ultimate Abyss. An Oasis Class mainstay, the tallest slide at sea is a favorite among daredevils of all ages. It sends brave adventure-seekers down an incredible ride down ten stories over the stern of the ship. What’s more, rides are free and reservations aren’t required. All you have to do is show up and put on your brave face. 

Let Your Teens Kick Back In A Space All Their Own

The free things to do onboard Wonder of the Seas cater to guests of all ages — including teens. This groundbreaking cruise ship features an exclusive new space just for adventure-seekers aged 13-17. Just beyond the secret speakeasy entrance, they’ll find a gaming lounge filled with classics and new favorites, an area to watch movies, plenty of room to unwind in and mingle with new friends and an awesome soundtrack that keeps the vibe just right. There’s even an outdoor patio that’s perfect for soaking up the sun or stargazing after dark.

Take In Awe-inspiring Spectaculars At The Aquatheater

When you sail onboard the new Wonder of the Seas, every night promises an incredible lineup of performances — and the AquaTheater dazzles with some of the most captivating shows at sea. Set outdoors beneath the stars, this huge, amphitheater-style performance venue sets the stage for high-diving stunts, synchronized swimming and surreal aerialist moves in the original production inTENse. It’s a high-energy show that’s all about mesmerizing tech and jaw-dropping athleticism. Get ready for tightrope teetering, deep-pool plunging and more full-throttle feats. And it’s totally free for cruise guests — all you have to do is make a reservation at the box office onboard or via the Royal Caribbean Cruise Planner app.

Croon All Your Favorite Tunes At Spotlightsm Karaoke

Nights out are always fun onboard Wonder of the Seas — especially when you pencil in some time to sing at the all-new music venue, Spotlight Karaoke. At this family favorite hangout spot, all eyes and ears are on you. Hit the mainstage after an intro from the MC and belt it out to tunes from the venue’s expansive collection — it has thousands of popular and obscure hits to choose from. It’s free to perform, so you can spend the night running through all your favorite jams. If you’d rather throw your own karaoke party, you can reserve a private room with your closest friends and family for a fee. 

Jam Out To World-class Cover Bands At Music Hall

If you’re craving a concert, you’ll be happy to know Wonder of the Seas offers scene-stealing performances by world-class cover bands every night at Music Hall. This huge, multi-level venue spotlights amazing entertainment that runs the gamut from groove-inducing disco and throwback swing to head-banging classic rock ballads.
