Royal Caribbean Starts Construction on Spectrum of the Seas

Royal Caribbean International marked the start of construction for its new Quantum Ultra ship – Spectrum of the Seas – with the cutting of the first piece of steel at the Meyer Weft shipyard.

Spectrum of the Seas will debut in 2019 and will be specifically designed for guests in Asia. The ship will join sister ships Quantum of the Seas and Ovation of the Seas, which currently operate from Shanghai and Tianjin.

The next-generation Quantum Ultra ship will feature “cutting edge and unprecedented experiences and amenities” according to Michael Bayley, chief executive and president of Royal Caribbean International.
