The new vessel was named by its Godmother Marie McCrea of Pennsylvania during a special ceremony in Port Canaveral, Florida on Friday night.

Guests also included McCrea’s daughter, Allie, who nominated her mother for the role as part of a nationwide search launched on TikTok back on Mother’s Day. The campaign saw as many as 16,000 videos posted and 10.6 billion hashtag views. McCrea’s story stood out as she was described as “a devoted mother, wife and cancer survivor whose spirit inspired her family and those around her to set out on adventures and enjoy every moment together despite the hardships they faced.”

“It was an honor to officially welcome Marie and Wonder of the Seas to the Royal Caribbean family,” Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, said in a statement. “Marie’s story is one of incredible strength and family memories to last a lifetime, and those are the types of memories we’ve committed to creating with our guests and crew on every Royal Caribbean ship for more than 53 years. Wonder is the adventure of all adventures that combines what families know and love on our revolutionary Oasis Class ships with brand-new experiences, and it’s already delivered memorable vacations to more than 180,500 guests since first setting sail in March.”

“Wonder of the Seas exemplifies Royal Caribbean Group’s focus on unparalleled innovation, sustainable cruise ship design and our commitment to delivering world-class, memorable vacations, responsibly,” added Jason Liberty, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean Group. “This milestone represents the culmination of millions of hours of work, from the most innovative minds in the industry, to deliver the world’s latest wonder.”

Wonder of the Seas is now sailing seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries from Port Canaveral, including stops at Royal Caribbean’s private island destination, Perfect Day at CocoCay in The Bahamas as well as St. Thomas, St. Maarten and Mexico.

Onboard highlights include more than 40 restaurants, bars and lounges, the tallest slide at sea (The Ultimate Abyss), the FlowRider surf simulator; rock climbing walls; The Perfect Storm racing waterslides; newly designed areas just for kids and teens and original entertainment spread across four “stages” in air, ice, theater and water.
