Royal Caribbean has officially taken delivery of their newest cruise ship, Spectrum of the Seas. Built for the Asian cruise market, this 4,246-guest vessel is the line’s first Quantum Ultra-class ship. This class offers suite guests a private four-deck enclave.
“We are excited to welcome Spectrum of the Seas, our first Quantum Ultra Class ship to the Royal Caribbean family,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “We have once again combined revolutionary ship design with the latest technology to deliver a ship that will redefine the China cruise market. We are excited for our guests to make amazing family memories.”
Royal Caribbean’s First Suite Class
Royal Caribbean’s first exclusive suites-only area, which will feature the exquisite Golden and Silver suite accommodations in a private enclave at the forward end of the ship on decks 13 through 16.
Guests booked in these luxury suites will have special keycard access, a private elevator, and a dedicated restaurant and lounge. In addition to a range of exclusive amenities, guests will have access to The Balcony – a private outdoor space for sunbathing and relaxing – that offers the best views on board; and The Boutique, a shopping area where travelers can book private shopping experiences.
The ship will also feature items found on previous Quantum-class ships like RipCord by iFly skydiving simulator, the Northstar capsule that takes you 300 feet above the sea, Flowrider, and the aft Two70 theater.
Spectrum will be the largest and most expensive ship in Asia when she arrives to her new home in Shanghai on June 3, 2019.
Before Spectrum arrives to her new home this summer, she will sail a 46-night Global Odyssey from Barcelona, Spain to Shanghai, taking guests to an exciting array of ports, including Aqaba, Jordan; Dubai, UAE; Muscat, Oman; Cochin, India and Georgetown, Malaysia.
In winter 2019, the ship will reposition to Hong Kong.
Late last month Spectrum of the Seas made her way down the River Ems on her conveyance from the Meyer Werft shipyard to the North Sea.
