Ship Information: Royal Caribbean’s Brand New – Wonder of the Seas

The biggest ship in the world and the first of its class to feature eight unique neighborhoods — including the luxurious new Suite Neighborhood — Wonder of the Seas offers even more room for onboard adventure, palate-pleasing dining and awe-inspiring entertainment.

This isn’t just another day at sea when cruising on Wonder of the Seas. There’s way more to see — and do. From fleet favorite thrills, like the FlowRider® surf simulator’s 30,000 gallons of rushing awesome, to all-new adventures designed to change the way you play, including a whole new immersive spin on mini golf and a climbable, slidable space that’s leagues away from your ordinary playground.


All Rates are per person based on double occupancy.  We have limited numbers of cabins available at the advertised rates. Once we sell our reduced rate cabins, the price will double on this cruise. Because it’s a brand new ship with a very high price during Christmas break, 3rd passenger rates are very expensive. We recommend you find an even number of traveling companions for this particular cruise to take advantage of our amazing prices.

Single occupancy prices on this cruise are very expensive. We have very limited availability for inside and window cabins. Once the cabins are sold from our group contract, the pricing will almost double. This cruise has gotten very expensive because demand for the new ship over Christmas is high. We have a lot of balcony cabins still available in our group allotment.

Dave Hadlock
Sold Out
Dave has worked as a tour director to religious sites for over 16 years. He began as a contracted guide working for other LDS travel agencies while owning an export clothing business (used and vintage clothing). He enjoyed the vintage clothing business. It was kind of like prospecting for gold, only looking for old clothes. As the vintage clothing business declined, he moved into travel full time with the opening of Bountiful Travel. His qualifications for religious teaching began as a missionary when he felt his soul enlarge (in the words of Alma) as he heard a master teacher of the scriptures. He wanted to be able to help others feel the same way through his teaching. He began an intense study of the scriptures as a missionary and continued after his mission working on a Master’s degree in Ancient Near Eastern Studies (Biblical Hebrew emphasis). He studies looking for unique insights into the scriptures and has worked hard at learning how to teach those insights in an interesting manner. His background in Mesoamerican studies and Ancient Near Eastern studies lends to unique insights into the scriptures. He is laid-back and loves to have fun. He loves teaching and being with people. So for him this is the ultimate job. He hopes that his love for the scriptures is contagious as he teaches. He’s taken over 100 tour groups to Central America and Israel over the last 14 years and hopes you will join him on one of his trips.
