Spectrum of the Seas is a Quantum-Ultra-class cruise ship currently operated by Royal Caribbean International and the first ship of the Quantum Ultra class, a modification from the company’s Quantum class of ships. The ship was constructed at Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany and was delivered in April 2019. At 169,379 GT, she became the fifth largest ship in the fleet by gross tonnage upon delivery. She currently operates primarily in East Asia.

On 7 May 2015, Royal Caribbean released an announcement regarding an agreement entered with Meyer Werft about ordering the fourth Quantum-class ship, with a scheduled entry into service of 2019. The name of Royal Caribbean’s first Quantum Ultra cruise ship was announced as Spectrum of the Seas on 16 August 2017. On the same day, Michael Bayley, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean, confirmed an announcement made earlier in April 2017 that the ship would be based in the Chinese market and would feature accommodations and offerings specifically designed for the Asia-Pacific region.

Construction began with the steel cutting ceremony on 16 August 2017. The keel was laid on 8 November 2017. A coin ceremony was also dedicated on the same day, featuring a coin placed under the first block out of the 74 total blocks comprising the vessel. Spectrum of the Seas floated out from Meyer Werft’s shipyard in Papenburg on 25 February 2019, ready to have her funnel cladding installed at the shipyard’s outfitting pier. The ship’s conveyance up the River Ems for her sea trials in the North Sea began on 20 March 2019 and finished the next day as she arrived in Eemshaven.

Spectrum of the Seas was officially delivered to Royal Caribbean on 11 April 2019 in a ceremony in Bremerhaven. On 3 June 2019, Huang Xiaoming and Angelababy christened the vessel in a ceremony celebrating the ship’s arrival in China.
