Royal Caribbean has committed to a third Quantum-class ship, with the announcement last week that they have signed a contract with Meyer Werft shipyard to deliver the new vessel in mid-2016.
The decision follows the positive response garnered by the unveiling of the innovations slated for Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas, expected to launch in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
“We are encouraged by the very positive response we received from travel agents and consumers when we first announced some of the unprecedented offerings on Quantum Class,” Royal Caribbean International president and CEO Adam Goldsteinn said.
“The Quantum Class will offer vacationers more unexpected activities in the most extraordinary spaces, and a third ship will offer even more opportunities for vacationers to experience Quantum cruising.”
The question on everybody’s lips right now is, what will this new ship be named?
Royal Caribbean Blog (a fan website not affiliated with the cruise line) has done their research and Royal Caribbean still has trademarks on the following names:
Ovation of the Seas (our money is on this one)
Passion of the Seas
Pulse of the Seas
Vantage of the Seas
