Royal Caribbean International’s soon to launch Spectrum of the Seas has arrived in Eemshaven, following its conveyance along the River Ems from the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.
Spectrum of the Seas departed the shipyard early on the morning of 20 March 2019, before arriving at Eemshaven the following day.
The 169,300 gross tonne ship was carefully maneuvered by a team of specialist pilots, with the assistance of tug boats. The approximately 50 miles journey along the River Ems from the shipyard to Eemshaven took around 24 hours.
Spectrum of the Seas will leave Eemshaven at a later date to undergo a series of sea trials before its delivery to Royal Caribbean International in early April.
The new ship is the first Ultra-Quantum class ship to be built for Royal Caribbean International and has been specifically designed for the Asian cruise market. The new ship will accommodate up to 5,622 guests, in some 2,137 staterooms.
Before arriving in Asia Spectrum of the Seas will offer a 16-night cruise from Barcelona, Spain departing on 18 April 2019 which will sail to Dubai via the Suez Canal. A 14-night cruise will sail from Dubai to Singapore on 04 May 2019.
