Steel Cutting Ceremony Takes Place For Royal Caribbean’s Third Quantum Class Ship

Earlier today, Royal Caribbean’s third Quantum Class ship commenced construction at Meyer Werft’s Papenburg shipyard. In addition to celebrating the construction of the new ship, Royal Caribbean also announced the ship will join the fleet as Ovation of the Seas.

Ovation of the Seas, sister to both Quantum and Anthem of the Seas, will be constructed at Meyer Werft’s primary yard in Papenburg, Germany. The new ship will feature similar features and design to her earlier Quantum Class sisters, including North Star, RipCord, The Bionic Bar, SeaPlex, the Two70 entertainment complex, and virtual balconies.

Ovation of the Seas is scheduled to debut with Royal Caribbean in the fall of 2016. At this time, Royal Caribbean has made no indication of the new ship’s potential itineraries or homeport.
