Royal Caribbean announce new ship name

Royal Caribbean International has announced the name of the newest high-tech ship to join its Quantum Class fleet – Spectrum of the Seas.

Set to debut in 2019, Spectrum will be the next evolution of the cruise line’s groundbreaking and high-tech Quantum class of ships, placing the ship in a new class of her own.

The ‘Quantum Ultra’ ship will specifically be designed for guests in China and the Asia-Pacific region, and will feature cutting-edge and unprecedented experiences and amenities.

Features on current-gen Quantum Class ships include robot bars, a skydiving simulator, and Dynamic Dining – a freestyle dining concept replacing the main dining room. Though no details on the Quantum Ultra ship were announced, you can bet it’ll be a game changer.

“Today is a very special day in the development of our new Quantum Ultra ship, Spectrum of the Seas. We are now one step closer to delighting our guests in Asia Pacific with this remarkable ship,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.

Spectrum will be another giant leap forward in vessel design and guest experiences that will provide travelers with ample opportunities to create unforgettable memories.”
