Odyssey of the Seas, Royal Caribbean's second Quantum Ultra-Class ship, will launch in November of 2020. Unlike its sister ship, Spectrum of the Seas, Odyssey will sail from the United States, Fort Lauderdale, to be specific. Its inaugural sailing will be a four-night Bahamas cruise departing November 5, 2020.
Despite carrying the "ultra" tag, the ships are only a tiny bit larger than their Quantum class fleetmates - 168,800 gross tons versus 168,666 gross tons.
Odyssey of the Seas will feature some new-to-the-line features that are yet to be announced, but it will also have all the line's classic Quantum-class activities including RipCord by iFly skydiving, the SeaPlex with its roller skating rink and bumper cars, Two70 theater and the North Star capsule observation space.
Odyssey of the Seas will sail five- and six-night Western Caribbean, and five-, seven- and nine-night Eastern Caribbean itineraries, all with a stop at Perfect Day at CocoCay included. The ship will also sail a handful of eight-night Southern Caribbean itineraries.
The ship is under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.
