Royal Caribbean President and CEO Michael Bayley indicated a Quantum Class ship will sail from Southampton in 2020.
TTG is reporting Bayley confirmed the change, saying either Anthem of the Seas or Quantum of the Seas will call Southampton home in 2020. Ovation of the Seas will not be the ship, since she is scheduled to be redeployed from China to Alaska in 2019. It will be replaced in China by the new Quantum Ultra-class ship Spectrum of the Seas, which launches in the spring of 2019.
Anthem of the Seas called Southampton home when she first debuted, offering cruises from there in the summer of 2015 prior to her arrival at Bayonne, New Jersey, where she has remained since.
