[Watch] Spectrum of the Seas' Engine Room Block Moved
Royal Caribbean's Spectrum of the Seas is one step closer to completion with the vessel's floating engine room unit mega-block which was built in Rostock, Germany, traveling 296 nautical miles down the River Ems to the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.
Designed specifically for the Chinese market, the 347.1-meter (1,139-foot) Spectrum of the Seas is scheduled for delivery in 2019. She will be the next evolution of the cruise line’s Quantum class of ships placing the ship in a new class of her own called the Quantum Ultra. She will carry around 4,200 passengers and be a little bit larger than the Quantum Class ships: 168,800 gross tons versus 168,666 gross tons.
The first ships of the class – Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas – were delivered in fall 2014 and spring 2015. The third ship, Ovation of the Seas, was delivered in April 2016.
