Review of Spectrum Of The Seas

Royal Caribbean marked the official start of construction by cutting the first steel for its newest Quantum Ultra ship at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg Germany. The next engineering marvel in the RCI cruise company was named "Spectrum of the Seas". Next is shown a Quantum-class ship as looked from above.

Set to debut in 2019, she will be the next evolution of Royal Caribbean’s high-tech Quantum class of vessels placing the ship in a brand new class of her own.

The Quantum Ultra ship will be specifically designed for guests in China and Asia-Pacific region, and will boast cutting-edge and unprecedented amenities.

Royal Caribbean has not yet revealed whether the newbuild will be larger than the 3 existing Quantum Class ships of the line. But it said in a press release that the Spectrum of the Seas ship would represent an evolution of the class.
