Royal Caribbean International has announced the names of its two new ships – Quantum of the Seas, set to debut in autumn 2014, and Anthem of the Seas, which will follow in spring 2015. They will be part of the Quantum class of ships.
“We are extremely excited to celebrate this important milestone, the first cutting of steel, for our first Project Sunshine ship,” said Adam Goldstein, President and Chief Executive. “After three years of design and advance planning this is the first step of the construction of the ship and I look forward to seeing it all come together in the coming months.
“The new ship will be such a leap forward in terms of vessel design and guest experiences that we thought the name Quantum of the Seas was perfectly appropriate.”
“Throughout our history we have made huge strides in cruise ship design and innovation and the Quantum class will be no exception,” said Richard Fain, Chairman and Chief Executive of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “We look forward to introducing consumers to Quantum cruising.”
