Spectrum of the Seas is the first in the Quantum Ultra class, and can accommodate 4 246 guests at double occupancy, with 1 551 crew members. 

The ship features the cruise line’s first exclusive suites-only area. The area has Golden and Silver suite accommodations in a private enclave. Guests booked in these suites will have special keycard access, a private elevator, and a dedicated restaurant and lounge. 

Spectrum of the Seas will also see the introduction of the Ultimate Family Suite, a 261 sqm, two-level suite that can accommodate a family of up to 11 guests. The three-bedroom suite includes a master bedroom, with a bathroom that extends over the side of the ship, and two additional suites. 

The ship’s main dining room will cove three-levels, seating 1 844 guests and serving a variety of Chinese and Western a la carte options. There is also the Windjammer Market Place, a more casual venue also serving Chinese and Western dishes. The new specialty restaurant, Sichuan Red, serves cuisine from the Sichuan province of China.  Other dining options include: Wonderland’s Dadong, Jamie’s Italian, Izumi, and Chops Grille. There is also a tea room and café parlor.

Entertainment includes the new Star Moment venue, hosting karaoke. SeaPlex, the indoor sports and entertainment complex, will be enhanced with augmented reality walls and floors, creating interactive experiences for guests. The North Star glass capsule takes guests 91m above the sea. There are also skydiving and surfing simulators.  The ship will also include Sky Pad, a virtual reality bungee trampoline experience.

From April 2019 the ship will sail on a 51-night Global Odyssey, from Barcelona to Shanghai, stopping in 13 countries. From June 2019 Spectrum of the Seas will homeport in Shanghai, sailing new itineraries that visit ports such as Hakodate and Niigita, Japan; Ilocos, Philippines; and Vladivostok, Russia. In the northern hemisphere 2019 winter, the ship will reposition to Hong Kong.
