Wonder of the Seas, the world’s largest cruise ship and the fifth Oasis Class ship, offers a wide range of dining, entertainment, and relaxing options. Exploring the entire ship can be overwhelming, and it’s easy to miss out on some of the ship’s distinctive features, dining options, and hangout spots.
The art collection onboard the Wonder of the Seas, like that of all Royal Caribbean ships, is extensive and eclectic. There is no shortage of inspirational art to explore on board, from a massive purple dragon spanning 10 decks in the ship’s atrium to art pieces in every stairwell.
A set of three astronauts spread around the ship is one of the most interesting art aspects. One can be found staring through the glass into the Royal Promenade below in Central Park. Another can be located on the rock climbing wall at the Boardwalk. The third astronaut can be found on the pool deck near the movie screen sitting area.
Late-night bites at The Mason Jar
You can sample various menu items on a late-night menu if you want to explore Royal Caribbean’s newest specialty restaurant.
Crab beignets, fried green tomatoes, and the crispy chicken sandwich are among the late-night menu items with prices ranging from $3 to $9. Starting at 9 p.m., the menu is accessible every day.
Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen menu items at Giovanni’s Wine Bar
You can order menu items from Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen at the wine bar next door, just like you can at The Mason Jar. Every day from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. or 11 p.m., the kitchen is open.
There are four different varieties of pizzas on the menu, as well as appetizers such as fried lasagna, calamari, and Italian stromboli. Go Bananas and Mamma’s Tiramisu, two popular sweets, are also offered.
Ordering food at the wine bar is not included in the meal package, unlike at The Mason Jar, and menu prices range from $3 to $12.
Virtual Balcony in the Diamond Lounge
The Diamond Lounge is located on Deck 4 in the Entertainment Place area of the Wonder of the Seas. Due to the lack of windows in the space, Royal Caribbean installed two virtual balconies. This provides a great view while also giving guests in the lounge an idea of what the weather is like outside without having to leave the area.
USB plugs in bars
Playmakers, Schooner Bar, The Mason Jar, and Giovanni’s Wine Bar are among the bars and lounges on board that include USB charging plugs and hooks for bags or purses.
It’s nice to have USB plugs in common areas onboard for individuals who need to charge their devices or use a laptop. Guests who want a safe spot to keep their bag or jacket while at a bar will appreciate the hooks.
Quiet seating on Deck 17
The outside deck space on Deck 17 was formerly reserved for the Suite Deck on other Oasis Class ships. However, because the Wonder of the Seas has its own suite community, this area is now open to all guests.
There are plenty of comfortable loungers and pool chairs here, and the area is usually much less congested than other parts of the pool deck. While this region is subject to strong winds, it is a pleasant place to unwind while admiring the sun and ocean views.
To get to this section, take Deck 16 (the top pool deck) all the way forward and up the stairs.
Seating and game area on the running track
Outdoor seating and game areas with fantastic seaside views are located on each side of the running track.
There are a few tables and chairs, shuffleboard, and a ping pong table on one side of the ship. The other consists solely of seating places. Because few visitors are aware of this location, there are rarely many people here, and it’s a peaceful place to enjoy ocean views without the throng.
To get to these spots, go to deck 5’s running track and walk forward. The seating area will be on the right or left side of the ship, depending on which side of the ship you are on.
Solarium bridge wings
Two bridge wings protrude over the side of the ship at the Solarium of the Wonder of the Seas. While at sea, this might be a good site to watch sail away or catch a sunset.
The Solarium bridge wings, unlike other outdoor deck areas onboard, are rarely crowded. To get to the bridge wings, go to the Solarium’s front.
Less crowded seating at the Windjammer
The Windjammer on Wonder of the Seas is the largest in the fleet, unlike on other Oasis Class ships where it is fairly tiny. On Deck 15, it arcs around the Boardwalk neighborhood, providing views of the sea and the Boardwalk below.
On each side of the Windjammer, there are main seating areas that can get packed during peak meal hours.
However, if you walk all the way to the rear of the Windjammer, you will find a smaller, less busy seating area.
Private teen deck
Onboard, teenagers aged 13 to 17 have access to Social 100, an outdoor deck dedicated to them. Social 100 is a private hot tub, non-alcoholic bar, selfie area, games, and comfortable seating located on Deck 17 near the waterslides.
While at sea, this is a great place for youngsters to hang out and relax with new friends.
Teens get access to the indoor Social 100 area on Deck 16 in addition to the outside deck. A game area, comfortable seating, a vending machine, literature, and foosball tables are all available indoors.
