The 168,600gt Odyssey of the Seas will become Royal Caribbean's first Quantum Ultra-class ship in North America at its debut in fall 2020.

Eight- and six-night Caribbean cruises

The ship will arrive at Fort Lauderdale's Port Everglades in November next year to offer eight- and six-night cruises before heading to Europe for summer 2021.

Odyssey of the Seas will sail to the Western and Southern Caribbean, calling at Aruba and Curaçao as part of its eight-night itineraries. The six-night adventures will visit Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Perfect Day at CocoCay.

Odyssey's Caribbean cruises are now open for sale, and bookings for Europe will open in November.

Under construction at Meyer Werft, Odyssey of the Seas follows the first Quantum Ultra ship, Spectrum of the Seas, which entered service in China a few months back.

New experiences plus sky diving, North Star, Two70, SeaPlex

Odyssey will have new, soon-to-be-announced experiences, plus Royal Caribbean exclusives like the RipCord by iFLY sky-diving adventure, the North Star glass observation capsule that carries passengers more than 300 feet above the ocean, the Two70 entertainment and SeaPlex with its trapeze school, full-size basketball court, roller-skating rink and bumper cars.
