The first piece of steel was cut at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany marking the start of construction on the new cruise ship. The next engineering marvel in the innovative cruise line’s lineup will officially be named Spectrum of the Seas.
Set to debut in 2019, Spectrum of the Seas 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 revolutionary 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.
