As disclosed, the newbuilding will be named Spectrum of the Seas.

“Today is a very special day in the development of our new Quantum Ultra ship, Spectrum of the Seas. We are now one step closer to delighting our guests in Asia Pacific with this remarkable ship,” Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, commented.
