Royal Caribbean has unveiled that its first Quantum Ultra-class ship will be based in the Asia-Pacific region.
Set to launch in Spring 2019, the yet-to-be-named ship will be the next evolution of the ground-breaking Quantum class and will join her sister ships, Quantum of the Seas, Anthem of the Seas, and Ovation of the Seas.
As part of the deployment plans for 2018-19, Mariner of the Seas will reposition to a new home in Miami, Florida embarking on a “Global Odyssey” from Asia that features three long sailings from Singapore to Dubai; Dubai to Barcelona; and Barcelona to Miami. The “Global Odyssey” opens for sale on May 2, 2017.
Voyager of the Seas will have her first full season in Singapore in 2018-19, offering three to seven-night adventures throughout Southeast Asia, with stops that include ports in Thailand and Malaysia. Voyager of the Seas will offer a combined total of 77 sailings from Singapore, Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China, beginning April 30, 2018.
Quantum of the Seas will continue to sail from Shanghai for the fourth consecutive season, offering 78 sailings to and from Japan, beginning January 2018.
Ovation of the Seas will return to Tianjin, China for its second season, offering a rich line-up to explore the best of Japan, including two new ports for the ship: Sasaebo and Shimonoseki.
Beginning November 2018, Ovation of the Seas will also offer thirteen sailings from Sydney. Radiance of the Seas and Explorer of the Seas will also offer cruises from Australia.
Royal Caribbean’s sailings from China are available to book now, with Australian cruises going on sale on May 16, 2017.
