Royal Caribbean has ordered a fourth ship for its Quantum Class family of ships. The ship will be delivered in 2019. From the press release:

“Today’s announcement is a reflection of the success of the first two Quantum-class ships,” said Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “We have received a remarkable response from travel agent partners and travelers, and are thrilled that we’ll be able to deliver another revolutionary ship with our partners at Meyer Werft.”


While I expect that the fourth Quantum Class ship will offer many of the same amenities as her sister ships, it is not unusual for ship design to evolve a bit over the delivery cycle of a complete class of ships. You can count me solidly in the court of Quantum Class fans as evidenced my by Quantum of the Seas review. I’m excited to see what Royal Caribbean has in store for us with the fourth Quantum Class vessel. (Quantum of the Seas image © 2015 – Cruise Concierge, LLC)
