The new year brings excitement about new cruise ships getting ready to launch in 2022. These are some of the ships that will debut this year:
Royal Caribbean’s Wonder of the Seas will take the title of “world’s largest cruise ship” when it launches on March 4. Like its Oasis Class siblings, the Wonder will include distinct “neighborhoods,” each packed with incredible activities and amenities: Boardwalk, Central Park, Entertainment Place, Pool and Sports Zone, Royal Promenade, Vitality Spa, and Fitness Center, and Youth Zone. Plus, the Wonder will introduce a new neighborhood called Suite Class, which will have a restaurant, plunge pool, and sun deck just for the use of guests in the onboard suites. The Wonder will debut in the Caribbean before moving to the Mediterranean for the summer months.
May 6 will bring the launch of a new type of ship from a new cruise line as The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection introduces the Evrima, its first ultra-luxury superyacht. The ship will accommodate just 298 passengers and promises spacious cabins, gourmet dining, and a gorgeous spa; just what you would expect from one of the best-known operators of high-end hotels. The Evrima will sail first in the Mediterranean, then move to the Caribbean for winter.
The Disney Wish, Disney Cruise Line’s first new ship in a decade, will begin sailing to the Bahamas on June 9. The ship will establish the line’s Triton Class, with a refreshed Oceaneers Club for kids and a new Marvel Super Hero Academy. Most cabins – 90% – will have views to the outside, and a new type of cabin, located over the bridge, will offer expansive ocean views.
Norwegian Cruise Line will also debut the first in a new class of ships: the Norwegian Prima. While it’s designed to access smaller ports, the Prima won’t lack attractions, including a three-deck go-kart track and “The Drop,” a thrilling 10-story dry slide. The ship will also have lots of deck space and the line’s widest variety of suite accommodations. The Prima will sail Northern Europe beginning in August, then will reposition to the Caribbean.
Adventurous cruisers will be glad to hear about some new, purpose-built expedition ships. Viking Ocean Cruises’ Octantis will sail in January and the Seabourn Venture will launch in April. Both will be equipped to venture to remote destinations like the Arctic, Antarctica, and more.
