Here are ten of the top things to do onboard this record-setting cruise ship.

Plunge Into A Day At Sea Adventure On The Fan-favorite Ultimate Abyss

Wonder of the Seas is home to the tallest slide at sea, Ultimate Abyss. Since debuting onboard Harmony of the Seas®, this Royal Caribbean classic has been a favorite among thrill seekers of all ages. It sends fearless riders on a twisting, turning, white-knuckle ride down ten stories over the stern of the ship. Admission is covered by your cruise fare and reservations aren’t required, so feel free to come back and test your mettle as often as you like throughout your getaway. Though it looks intimidating, this dry slide is totally kid-friendly — your little ones just have to meet the 44” height requirement.

Unsurpassed Onboard Activities For All With The Perfect Storm Waterslide

If you’ve cruised with Royal Caribbean in the past, you’re probably familiar with The Perfect Storm waterslides. If you haven’t — well then, you’re in for a treat when visiting the pool deck for the best things to do. Onboard Wonder of the Seas, this adrenaline-amping attraction is a trio of hair-raising, super-soaking slides you’ll want to conquer again and again. Take on the dual racers with a friend and see who can get down fastest. Or put on your brave face and try out the first boomerang-style and headfirst mat racer waterslides at sea. Like the Ultimate Abyss, rides on The Perfect Storm are free to cruise guests.  

Soar Across The Boardwalk® On The Zip Line Ride Of Your Life

Ready to take your cruise getaway to new heights — literally? You’re on the right ship. Harness up and get ready for a major adrenaline rush as you soar ten decks above the Boardwalk on the cruise ship’s zip line, another Oasis Class favorite. Make sure you have a friend waiting at the other end with a camera ready to capture you as you zoom through the air. You don’t need to make a reservation for this top-rated attraction, and it’s complimentary for guests sailing onboard Wonder of the Seas. See for yourself why it’s considered one of the top free things to do onboard. 

Find Your Footing And Hang Ten On The Flowrider Surf Simulator

The Wonder of the Seas is home to another iconic Royal Caribbean attraction and a fleetwide favorite — the FlowRider. Whether you’re island-hopping across the Caribbean or cruising through Europe, the surf’s always up on this 40-foot-long wave simulator. It channels 30,000 gallons of rushing water to create the perfect swell around the clock. You can test your skills at carving upright on your feet or take on the waves boogie-style — how you choose to shred is totally up to you. If you prefer to watch others attempt to hang ten, no worries. You can hang out in the stadium seating and cheer on each contender — just prepare to get splashed.

Discover A “hole” DIFFERENT Way To Tee Off At Sea

Mini golf has long been a fleetwide favorite for those cruising with Royal Caribbean, and Wonder of the Seas reimagines the experience with a slew of sea-inspired surprises. Tee up under the sun or stars in Wonder Dunes, an immersive, underwater-themed mini golf journey where every hole is part of a wild, watery story. You’ll encounter sea snails with racing stripes, sentinel jellyfish and turtles, and even a giant octopus as you put your way around the course. Wonder Dunes is one of the top free activities onboard this wow-worthy ship.
