Miami-based cruise company Royal Caribbean International has marked the official start of construction of its new Quantum Ultra-class ship by cutting the first piece of steel at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

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

Set to debut in 2019, Spectrum will be the next evolution of the cruise line’s Quantum class of ships placing the ship in a new class of its own. The Quantum Ultra ship will specifically be designed for Chinese market and the Asia-Pacific region, Royal Caribbean said.

“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.

The cruise line sails 24 cruise ships to destinations in Bermuda and the Caribbean, Europe, Canada and New England, Alaska, South America, Asia, and Australia and New Zealand.
