The ship was floated on 5 September, with tug boats used to complete the 1,500-foot journey as the ship’s engines have not yet been fitted.

Wonder of the Seas was originally planned to enter service in 2021, however, because of the coronavirus pandemic it has been pushed back to 2022.

When the ship enters into service, it will operate in the Chinese market, homeported in Shanghai and conducting sailings around Asia.

Wonder of the Seas will now undergo an extensive fitting-out process, where its interior spaces will be built, furnished and finished.

The vessel will carry about 5,500 passengers and have 17 decks.
