Royal Caribbean has entered into an agreement with Meyer Werft to order a fifth Quantum-class cruise ship, the company announced.
The as-yet unnamed ship is slated for delivery in the fall of 2020.
“It is such a pleasure to announce the order of another Quantum-class ship as we are welcoming Anthem of the Seas to North America,” said Richard Fain, Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “These ships have been received with excitement, and performed exceptionally well, across the globe. We fully expect that momentum to continue as we add to this innovative class of ships.”
The news comes as Royal Caribbean’s Quantum-class Anthem of the Seas will be making its US debut later this month.
“At Royal Caribbean we are focused on continuously improving efficiency and sustainability, and the fifth Quantum class vessel will be clear evidence of this,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “Of equal importance is our ability to consistently surpass guest expectations, and we are harnessing the power of the latest technology to do so on this ship.”
