January 25, 2022 Cruise News No Comments

Wonder of the SeasRoyal Caribbean International says it has taken adventure table-side aboard what they secure as the world’s newest wonder, Wonder of the Seas.

Unveiling a line-up of more than 20 dining venues headlined by the debut of The Mason Jar Southern Restaurant & Bar,  on board the highly anticipated ship that sets sail in March 2022, Royal Caribbean says that families and travellers alike also have in store an unmatched variety of flavours that range from Italian classics at Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar to American sports bar favourites at Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade, to New England-inspired dishes at Hooked Seafood.

Described as where southern comfort food meets Royal Caribbean’s hospitality, The Mason Jar invites guests to share a meal, drinks and memories in a warm, casual setting, with every detail serveng up southern charm in the new specialty restaurant, and setting the scene is farmhouse-style and rustic decor, live country music, even a cosy porch decked out with a swing for lounging and a great photo op, and a dedicated bar at the centre of it all.

On the menu are southern staples and new twists on classics the whole family can enjoy for brunch, dinner and late-night bites, beginning with freshly baked buttermilk biscuits and jalapeno cornbread.

Brunch favourites range from savory johnnycakes topped with barbeque pulled pork to the Sweet-Tooth Cinnamon Roll.

At suppertime, highlights include fried green tomatoes, authentic southern fried chicken, crab beignets served with lump crab dip, and shrimp and grits.

And for a sweet ending, there’s everything from traditional pies to spiked floats and shakes. Plus, keeping the good times rolling is a robust collection of more than a dozen American whiskeys and a line-up of southern libations, such as the classic mint julep dusted tableside with powdered sugar and the Mississippi Moonlight – made with blackberry moonshine, blackberries and lemonade, and served in a chilled mason jar.

Whether at a table for family dinner or at the bar for a bite, a nightcap and live music, The Mason Jar will be a hotspot day and night.

The Mason Jar is just the beginning, with Wonder serving up a variety of restaurants, bars and lounges to choose from across eight signature neighbourhoods. From Central Park to the all-new Suite Neighbourhood – an Oasis Class first – more dining highlights on the upcoming ship include:

  • The Vue – The happiest of happy hours can be found at this new cantilevered bar. The Vue offers panoramic ocean views by day, and after sunset, it shines bright with a colourful mosaic canopy overhead.
  • Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar – It’s a family-style affair every day at Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar, the first on an Oasis Class ship. On the menu are freshly made, authentic staples, from hand-tossed pizzas to charcuterie boards and veal meatballs, to an extensive wine list, wine flights and cocktails, like an Aperol Spritz and Negroni.
  • Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade – This popular venue brings guests of all ages together to catch the big game across dozens of big-screen TVs, battle it out in friendly competition at the arcade, and munch on bar fare and ice-cold draft beers.
  • El Loco Fresh and Cantina Fresca – The grab-and-go spot for Mexican delights, like made-to-order tacos, burritos and quesadillas, now debuts a dedicated bar called Cantina Fresca that serves a selection of “aguas frescas,” margaritas and other Mexican staples.
  • The Lime & Coconut – This signature pool deck experience is at the centre of the Caribbean vibes, with multiple poolside bars and live music.

Vacationers can also enjoy more options, such as Wonderland, Asian-inspired flavours at Izumi, American steakhouse Chops Grille, American seasonal dishes at 150 Central Park, Johnny Rockets, Starbucks, Sugar Beach, and more.

Whatever the mood on any given day, Wonder introduces a culinary line-up that caters to guests and their varying palates. Throughout the ship,travellers can also complement their meal with a unique set of Caribbean-inspired drinks, bold and spirited classics, and even zero-proof cocktails as part of Royal Caribbean’s reimagined beverage menus.

Setting sail for the first time in March 2022, Wonder will call three marquee destinations home during its inaugural year: Fort Lauderdale, Florida (March-April); Barcelona, Spain, and Rome (April-October); and Port Canaveral, Florida (year-round, starting November). The new ship’s combination of firsts and favourites will bring to life adventures across thrills, dining, entertainment, technology and more as travellers sail to locales in the eastern and western Caribbean, including Royal Caribbean’s private island destination, Perfect Day at CocoCay; Philipsburg, St. Maarten; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; andCozumel, Mexico.
