First Look at the Newest Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship

Take a first look at the newest Royal Caribbean cruise ship Spectrum of the Seas just after being floated out of the construction hall.

Spectrum of the Seas Photos

We’ve already posted about Royal Caribbean’s newest cruise ship floating out last week but not long after the shipyard released some stunning new photos of the ship.

These photos from the Meyer Werft are identical to previous vessels built at the shipyard and now kind of a tradition.

We get to see some stunning views of Spectrum of the Seas for the very first time. She looks all shiny and new as work continues to get her ready for the April debut.

The first Quantum-ultra class vessel is now at the outfitting pier where the funnel is being installed, lifeboats and plenty of attention in the interior spaces. Still to come are sea trials in the North Star and the handover ceremony to the cruise line.

Now that the ship has left the hall, a large block of Norwegian Encore will move in so that construction can really start to scale up for the next Breakway-plus ship for Norwegian Cruise Line.

As we already mentioned, the ship was floated out recently which is a major construction milestone. Cruise Hive readers can watch some highlights of the detailed process along with facts:

Over the coming weeks, crew members will start arriving to prepare Spectrum of the Seas for her maiden voyage from Barcelona, Spain on April 18, 2019. Those in China will be among the first to experience the purpose-built ship for the market after an epic 51-day global odyssey voyage.
