Royal Caribbean Sending First Quantum Ultra-Class Cruise Ship to Asia

Royal Caribbean has announced plans to send their first Quantum Ultra-class cruise ship to Asia.  The currently unnamed ship is scheduled to debut in the spring of 2019.

This fourth Quantum class ship will join sister ships, Ovation of the Seas and Quantum of the Seas, in Asia.

With nearly a decade since Royal Caribbean’s first cruise in China, the cruise line further bolsters its commitment to the market by dedicating a lineup of its most technologically advanced ships to the rapidly growing market. The new ship will specifically be designed for guests in the region, featuring even more cutting-edge and unprecedented experiences and amenities.

As part of the deployment plans for 2018-19, Mariner of the Seas will reposition to a new home in Miami, Florida embarking on a “Global Odyssey” from Asia that features three long sailings from Singapore to Dubai; Dubai to Barcelona; and Barcelona to Miami. The “Global Odyssey” opens for sale on May 2, 2017.  Voyager of the Seas will have her first full season in Singapore in 2018-19, offering 3- to 7-night adventures throughout Southeast Asia with stops that include ports in Thailand and Malaysia.
