The keel-laying marks the official start of construction for Royal Caribbean's first Quantum Ultra Class ship.

As part of maritime tradition, a lucky coin was placed under the first block.  There will be a total of 74 blocks that will make up Spectrum of the Seas.

Spectrum of the Seas is set to debut in 2019 and will be the first Quantum Ultra ship that will specifically be designed for guests in China and the Asia-Pacific region, and will feature cutting-edge and unprecedented experiences and amenities.
