Royal Caribbean today announced that it is bringing Odyssey of the Seas to South Florida in fall 2020, the ship’s debut and the Florida debut of Royal’s Quantum Ultra Class.
Odyssey, which will debut as the line’s 27th ship, will homeport in Fort Lauderdale starting in November 2020, sailings eight- and six-night Caribbean itineraries. Those sailings will also mark the first time a Quantum Ultra Class ship calls on Aruba and Curacao, which Odyssey will do during its eight-night Caribbean sailings.
The ship will then move to Europe for summer 2021.
Odyssey, according to the cruise line, “will represent the next evolution of Royal Caribbean’s groundbreaking and high-tech Quantum Class” that debuted in 2014 with Quantum of the Seas. Quantum was followed by Anthem of the Seas in 2015 and Ovation of the Seas in 2016 before Spectrum of the Seas launched Royal’s Quantum Ultra class earlier this year.
Odyssey will include a lot of the staples of the Quantum Class such as the RipCord by IFLY Sky-diving platform, North Star, SeaPlex, and more.
The sailings are now open for booking.
