Royal Caribbean has released a new construction update on Spectrum of the Seas, the first Quantum ultra class ship arriving this year. We’ve got some new photos from the shipyard to look at!
Spectrum of the Seas Update
We all love new cruise ships here and there’ nothing better than receiving some stunning new photos of Roya Caribbean’s next new cruise ship Spectrum of the Seas. The cruise ship which is an evolution of the current Quantum-class ships will be delivered in April 2019 so there really isn’t much time until we get to see the completed ship.
The cruise line has released a new batch of construction photos which were taken at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. The huge 20.5-megawatt azipod was installed this month with many workers making sure the process is completed successfully.
Cruise Hive readers can browse through all the new photos released including the overall look of Spectrum of the Seas, she’s just about complete! You can also view the last photos from October right here.
The majority of the work is taking place inside with all the spaces being fitted out. Very son crew members will begin to join the ship to start setting up their departments ready for the maiden voyage from Barcelona, April 18, 2019.
Unfortunately, those in the U.S. will not be able to experience the new mega-ship as she will sail a 51-night Global Odyssey cruise to her new home ports of Shanghai and Hong Kong, China. With the constant redeployments of ships hopefully, the U.S. market and more of Europe will get to see Spectrum of the Seas in the future.
The brand new ship is slightly larger than the Quantum-class at 168,800 gross tons and guest capacity of 4,200 at double occupancy. We’ll keep readers updated on the newest Royal Caribbean cruise ship as she enters service. A second sister ship named Odyssey of the Seas will arrive in 2020.
