New features include the Sky Pad: a virtual reality bungee trampoline experience located on the aft of the ship.

Spectrum of the Seas, like her three sister ships, is fitted with a hybrid scrubber. She has a diesel-electric pod drive, optimized hydrodynamics and energy-efficiency systems such as heat recovery, effective hull coating and LED lighting.

Spectrum of the Seas will now leave Bremerhaven. Her maiden voyage to Asia will begin in Barcelona on April 18, and she will homeport from Shanghai starting June 2019
