Wonder of the Seas Starts Atlantic Crossing to the Mediterranean

Submitted by kgnadmin on

After completing its inaugural season in the Caribbean the world’s largest cruise ship Wonder of the Seas, set sail from Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Wednesday, April 20, to the Mediterranean.

The ship is currently sailing a 14-Night Transatlantic cruise with scheduled stops to some of the most popular destinations in Spain including Malaga on April 30, Cartagena on May 1, Valencia on May 2. Palma De Mallorca on May 3, ending the voyage in Barcelona on May 4.

During the repositioning voyage Wonder of the Seas will spent nine straight days at sea sailing across six time zones. Ships guests and crew will experience endless ocean horizons and hour forward time changes on the ship's clock, usually adjusted after midnight. For the guest this is a unique experience, however, for the crew this means they lose an hour of sleep, and have to start the day an hour earlier than normal. 

Once Wonder of the Seas reaches the Mediterranean this colossus will start 7-Night Western Mediterranean cruises with Barcelona and Civitavecchia (Rome) as turnaround ports.

Wonder of the Seas Mediterranean season will last through the end of October when the ship will once again return to Florida.

Weighting at 236,857gt. Wonder of The Seas is not just a regular cruise ship. The vessel measures 362 m long and 64 m wide, and can accommodate 6,988 guests and 2,300 crew members
