The Wonder of the Seas will now set to sail from Port Canaveral’s Cruise Terminal 1 weekly, featuring cruises to both the Eastern and Western Caribbean.

For its first sailing from Port Canaveral, passengers aboard Wonder Of The Sea are enjoying a seven-night itinerary to the Eastern Caribbean, with visits to St. Thomas, St. Maarten and Perfect Day at CocoCay.
