In a statement released by Royal Caribbean, Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO of the company, said:
“It is such a pleasure to announce the order of another Quantum-class ship as we are welcoming Anthem of the Seas to North America. These ships have been received with excitement, and performed exceptionally well, across the globe. We fully expect that momentum to continue as we add to this innovative class of ships.”
Michael Bayley, President and CEO of Royal Caribbean International then added:
“At Royal Caribbean we are focused on continuously improving efficiency and sustainability, and the fifth Quantum class vessel will be clear evidence of this. Of equal importance is our ability to consistently surpass guest expectations, and we are harnessing the power of the latest technology to do so on this ship.”
