Spectum of the Seas! Royal Caribbean are on Grow Again!

Today has marked a date in History as Royal Caribbean International announced not only a new ship but a new class to join the Royal Caribbean Fleet. The new ship set to be called ‘Spectrum of the Seas’ which will be the first in the ‘Quantum Ultra Class’. Why she is set to be the Quantum Ultra Class as I am unable to see what the different to the Quantum, Anthem and Ovation of the Seas will be. she is only going to be a total of 168,000 gross tons which is similar to help sisters so I am not quite sure where the Ultra comes from – Any ideas?

Thomson announce latest addition to the Fleet!

Thomson Cruises have recently revealed the name and details of the next new ship to hit the Thomson Fleet, Thomson have grown significantly not only in size but in quality over the past couple of years, with the Tui Discovery in 2016, the Tui Discovery 2 in 2017 and now we know that the next ship is the Tui Explorer debuting for Thomson in 2018, and then the Tui Explorer 2 in 2019. These ships are to a much higher standard than the current ships in the Thomson fleet, and with that Thomson have said that the Thomson Majesty and the Thomson Spirit will both leave the fleet, I am surprised though as the Majesty was built in 1992, and the Celebration and the Dream which are older ships that will remain under the Thomson name, but as I always say, if you look after a ship it can operate for years – look at the Astoria in the Cruise and Maritime fleet – 1946 she entered service!
