The Spectrum of the Seas (169,379 GT), Royal Caribbean International’s first ship in the Quantum Ultra Class, embarked on the final stages of her build at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, in time for an April delivery.
Designed specifically for the Chinese market and carrying 4,200 passengers, Spectrum of the Seas’ boast is that she will be the largest and most expensive ship in Asia when cruises start from Shanghai in June.
That is not the only new build destined to serve the Chinese Market.
When Costa Cruises’ Costa Venezia (Gross Tonnage: 135,500 gt) enters service, she will be the company’s first Vista-class ship specifically designed and built for China. With room for 5,260 passengers, the ship will be one of the largest in the Costa Cruises fleet.
