Spectrum of the Seas Overview

Spectrum of the Seas, Royal Caribbean's first Quantum Ultra-Class ship, launched in the spring of 2019. According to Royal Caribbean, the class is "the next evolution" of its Quantum Class, though it will be only the tiniest bit larger than the Quantum Class ships -- 168,800 gross tons versus 168,666 gross tons for both Anthem and Ovation of the Seas (Quantum of the Seas is smaller). All carry the same number of passengers.
