Royal Caribbean International will introduce a range of new features onboard Odyssey of the Seas, the cruise line’s second Quantum Ultra class ship, when she first sets sail in November 2020.

Highlights will include a new generation of the SeaPlex activity space, which will feature a full-sized sports court, bumper cars and a glow-in-the-dark laser tag area, among other activities.  Guests will also be able to enjoy RipCord by iFly, a skydiving simulator, alongside the FlowRider surf simulator.

Also featured will be Two70, an entertainment venue with 270-degree panoramic windows, capable of transforming into a 135-foot-wide, 22-foot-tall screen. At night, the venue becomes a theatre, where a troupe of six Roboscreens move in sync with music, special effects and live performers and aerialists to create a visual performance.

The ship will also offer a range of dining options, including Teppanyaki, which will serve dishes cooked in a traditional Japanese style, and Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen & Wine bar, which will offer a take on the classic Italian trattoria.

“Odyssey of the Seas will set an all-new standard created to deliver the most memorable holidays by combining immersive experiences, the best of Royal Caribbean’s trendsetting innovations and the signature ‘Royal Way’ service of our dedicated crew members,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International. “This Quantum Ultra Class-ship introduces a new way to see the world as she becomes our first purposefully built vessel for island-hopping on both sides of the Atlantic.”

The ship will initially be sailing six- and eight-night itineraries around the Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale, US. Odyssey of the Seas will then reposition to her homeport in Rome, Italy in May 2021 to cruise around Europe in the summer, visiting destinations in Turkey and Greece.
