At 236,857 GT, she was the largest cruise ship in the world by gross tonnage, surpassed by the succeeding ship, Icon of the Seas, also owned by Royal Caribbean International.

As with all Oasis-class ships, one of the special features on board is the Central Park, with more than 10,000 plants and flowers.

Wonder of the Seas is powered by six marine-diesel sets: two 16-cylinder Wärtsilä 16V46D common rail engines and four 12-cylinder Wärtsilä 12V46D engines.

For propulsion, Wonder of the Seas uses three 20,000 kilowatt azipod main engines, which are electric thrusters. These engines are mounted under the stern of the ship and they each drive 20 foot wide rotatable propellers. In addition to the three electric thrusters, there are four bow thrusters used for docking, each with 5,500 kilowatts of power or 7,380 horsepower.
