Royal Caribbean Cruise Line (RCCL) has officially named its first-ever Quantum Ultra-Class ship Spectrum of the Seas at a ceremony in Shanghai.
The 4,905-passenger ship, which has been specially designed for the Chinese market, will be based in Shanghai after completing a 46-night Global Odyssey cruise.
Spectrum includes the line’s first private “enclave”, called the Suite Club, for passengers staying in suites, as well as new cabin categories and innovative restaurant “concepts” among its 33 dining options.
RCCL’s president and chief executive Michael Bayley said the ceremony showed “how far we’ve come since we first opened our first office in Shanghai in 2009”.
“The team will push us through in our journey to deliver incredible holidays on Spectrum of the Seas,” he added.
“It’s the 26th ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet and in a class of her own, literally. With her arrival we will continue to innovate in this market.
We have leveraged guest feedback and tailored the experience like never before. A groundbreaking ship deserves groundbreaking entertainment.”
The naming ceremony was conducted with Chinese celebrities and Royal Caribbean brand ambassadors Xiaoming Huang and Angelababy.
