Royal Caribbean International’s first Quantum Ultra ship is to be named Spectrum of the Seas.
The next evolution of the line’s high-tech Quantum class of ships is due to enter service in 2019.
The vessel will specifically be designed for passengers in China and the Asia-Pacific region.
Spectrum of the Seas will feature unspecified “cutting-edge and unprecedented experiences and amenities”.
The official start of construction of the ship began yesterday with the cutting of the first piece of steel at the Meyer Wefft shipyard in Germany.
Royal Caribbean International president and chief executive Michael Bayley said: “Today is a very special day in the development of our new Quantum Ultra ship, Spectrum of the Seas.
“We are now one step closer to delighting our guests in Asia Pacific with this remarkable ship.”
He added: “Spectrum will be a leap forward in vessel design and guest experiences that will provide travellers with ample opportunities to create unforgettable memories.”
