Start of something big with Spectrum of the Seas keel laying

An important milestone in the development of Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, Spectrum of the Seas, was celebrated last week (9 November) when her keel was lowered into place at the Neptun Werft shipyard in Rostock, Germany, to signal the beginning of physical construction.

During the ceremony, a 620-ton block measuring 59ft by 121ft was lifted into the building dock with an 800-ton crane.

Set to debut in 2019, Spectrum will be the next evolution of the cruise line’s high-tech Quantum class of ships placing her in a new class of her own called the Quantum Ultra.

The revolutionary ship will specifically be designed for guests in China and the Asia-Pacific region, and will feature cutting-edge and unprecedented experiences and amenities.
