Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: August 4, 2013
It's August and Royal Caribbean news this week really heated up with lots of news and changes. It's hard to pinpoint the biggest but if I had to pick one, it would be centered around Royal Caribbean's two newest ships.
On Friday, Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas moved one step closer to being built...at the same time! Quantum of the Seas kicked things off with its official keel-laying, which officially begins formal construction of the ship.
Right after that, Anthem of the Seas had her steel-cutting ceremony. We're still about 18-24 months away from both ships taking passengers but it's starting to get exciting!
