The keel-laying signifies the beginning of the ship’s physical construction, said Royal Caribbean.

Set to debut in 2019, Spectrum “will be the next evolution of the cruise line’s groundbreaking and high-tech Quantum class of ships placing the ship in a new class of her own called the Quantum Ultra,” according to Royal Caribbean.

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