Royal Caribbean’s first Quantum Ultra Class ship will debut in Fort Lauderdale, Florida during Fall 2020 and stay until Summer of 2021, where she will continue her inaugural season in Europe.
Odyssey of the Seas – the cruise line’s 27th cruise ship and first of the Quantum Ultra Class began construction in February this year at the Meyer-Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.
Offering even more ways to experience the sun-soaked islands of the Western and Southern Caribbean, Odyssey of the Seas will be the first Quantum Ultra Class ship to call on Aruba and Curacao as part of its 8-night itineraries. Island-hopping vacationers can explore Aruba’s rugged landscape off-roading in Arikok National Park, and discover the beloved architecture and narrow streets of Willemstad, Curacao.
As part of the Quantum Ultra Class, Odyssey of the Seas will represent the next evolution of Royal Caribbean’s groundbreaking and high-tech Quantum Class. First introduced in 2014, Quantum Class ships boldly redefined the industry with unprecedented innovations in design, thrilling activities, game-changing technology and multidimensional entertainment.
Travellers onboard Odyssey can expect to find an unrivalled combination of new, soon-to-be-announced experiences, plus “Only on Royal” features, including the RipCord by iFLY sky-diving adventure; North Star, a glass observation capsule that takes guests more than 300 feet above the ocean; the state-of-the-art Two70 entertainment venue; and a robust lineup of culinary experiences.
The ship will also tout the SeaPlex, the largest and most revolutionary indoor active space at sea, featuring a trapeze school, full-size basketball court, a roller-skating rink and bumper cars.
