Royal Caribbean International has entered into an agreement with Meyer Werft Shipyards for the construction of a fifth Quantum Class ship.
The fifth and unnamed Quantum Class ship is expected to be completed in the fall of 2020, following a number of additional Royal Caribbean Oasis and Quantum Class debuts. The Quantum Class ships lead the Royal Caribbean fleet in technological innovation, offering a number of tech inspired amenities and features, including RFID wristbands, robotic bartenders, and cutting edge internet connectivity.
“It is such a pleasure to announce the order of another Quantum-class ship as we are welcoming Anthem of the Seas to North America,” said Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “These ships have been received with excitement, and performed exceptionally well, across the globe. We fully expect that momentum to continue as we add to this innovative class of ships.”
Royal Caribbean’s next debut of a Quantum Class ship will be Ovation of the Seas, which is currently under construction at Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany, in the spring of 2015. The second Quantum Class ship, Anthem of the Seas, is set to make her North America debut later this week in Bayonne, New Jersey.
