Having launched as the flagship of the all-new Quantum Ultra Class, Royal Caribbean’s newest addition – Spectrum of the Seas – has set sail with a 46-night Global Odyssey cruise from Barcelona to Shanghai, where she will homeport from June.

Following the already-amazing Quantum Class, featuring Quantum, Anthem of the Seas and Ovation of the Seas, Spectrum offers 4,246 guests a chance to set sail on the largest and most expensive ship in Asia.

Spectrum of the Seas is also the first Royal Caribbean ship to feature an exclusive suites-only area. There are Golden and Silver suite accommodations in a private enclave at the forward end of the ship where guests have exclusive keycard access, a private elevator and a dedicated lounge and restaurant.

As well as this, guests can also enjoy a range of exclusive extras such as access to The Balcony – a private outdoor space perfect for sunbathing and relaxing with some of the best views on-board; and The Boutique – a shopping area where guests can browse in private.

A new speciality restaurant across all of Royal Caribbean’s fleet, Sichuan Red serves authentic cuisine from the Sichuan province of China.
