Meyer Werft has cut the first piece of steel for Royal Caribbean International’s second Quantum Ultra Class ship at its yard in Papenburg, Germany.

During the steel-cutting ceremony, Royal Caribbean revealed that the new vessel will be named Odyssey of the Seas. Set to debut in the US in autumn 2020, the ship will be the 27th in the global cruise line’s fleet and will be a sister to Spectrum of the Seas, which will begin sailing in Asia this spring.

Royal Caribbean will revealed additional details about the 168,000gt newbuild later this year.
