Royal Caribbean International has celebrated the first milestone in the construction of the second ship of the class ‘Quantum Ultra’, with the act of its first steel cut at the shipyard Meyer Werft in Papenburg (Germany), which becomes the 27th ship of the fleet. It will be called ‘Odyssey of the Seas’ and will debut in the fall of 2020 to sail from the United States, the shipping company has reported.

On the other hand, the ‘Oasis of the Seas’, the first ship of the ‘Oasis’ class of Royal Caribbean, will return to Spain this summer to offer trips to the Mediterranean for the first time since 2014. The ship will make seven-night itineraries from Barcelona with stopover in Palma de Mallorca (Spain); Marseille (France), Florence, Rome and Naples (Italy).

The ‘Brilliance of the Seas’, one of the four ships of the ‘Radiance’ class, will make seven-night cruises departing from Barcelona in September and October, visiting cities such as Nice (France), Portofino, Florence, Rome and Naples (Italy).
