Royal Caribbean’s newest Quantum class ship, the Spectrum of the Seas left the Meyer Werft shipyards in Germany on March 21st, slowly making its way down the Ems River towards the North Sea for sea trials.
Later this year, the Spectrum will be headed to China for its initial itineraries.
The new Spectrum of the Seas weighs in at more than 168,000 gross tons and can carry nearly 4300 passengers at double capacity.
The Spectrum features the North Star capsule, RipCord skydive simulator, FlowRider surfing and an entertainment area that features bumper cars, roller skating and basketball.
Currently no Quantum class ship calls its home port in Florida, though Anthem of the Seas includes stops at Port Canaveral.
