Royal Caribbean’s Newest Cruise Ship Completes Construction Milestone

Royal Caribbean’s newest cruise ship, Spectrum of the Seas, completed its latest construction milestone this past week. The cruise ship is the cruise line’s first Quantum Ultra class ship.

Spectrum of the Seas left the Meyer Werft shipyard and began her conveyance up the Ems River.  The cruise ship will begin sailing a series of sea trials before the vessel debuts in 17 days.

Spectrum of the Seas will sail its first cruise on April 18, a 16 night sailing that will pass through the Suez Canal and end in Dubai. After a series of short sailings in Asia, the cruise ship will arrive in her homeport of Shanghai in June.

The first Quantum Ultra ship will debut 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. Vacationers 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.

Custom built for the Chinese market, Spectrum of the Seas will feature bold and unexpected experiences, including the iconic Sky Pad, a virtual reality, bungee trampoline experience located on the aft of the ship. Guests will strap in and don their VR headset to transport them to another time and planet. The out-of-this-world experience is for guests of all ages, and also can be enjoyed without headsets, for those who prefer to look out over the ocean as they leap toward the sky.

Spectrum of the Seas will feature an awe-inspiring three-level main dining room with 1,844 seats to serve a variety of Chinese and Western a la carte options rotating each day of the sailing. For guests looking for a more casual venue, the Windjammer Marketplace – 20 percent larger than those on Quantum Class ships – will offer a wide buffet selection of Chinese and Western dishes, including noodles, pizza, Japanese teppanyaki and mini hot pot.

New to Royal Caribbean and first on Spectrum of the Seas is Star Moment, a lively and energetic karaoke venue where family and friends can belt out and sing like stars. The cruise line also will enhance SeaPlex – the largest indoor sports and entertainment complex at sea where families can enjoy bumper cars, roller skating and basketball – with new augmented reality walls and floors, providing guests with thrilling, high-tech interactive experiences.

In winter 2019, the ship will reposition to Hong Kong to offer special holiday cruises.
