Odyssey is WAAAY better than  Spectrum.  Whoever agreed to that name should lose their job !

Spectrum was likely picked to suit the region she will forever live in.  I'm guessing it checks all the boxes for the Asian culture while not so much considering how the West feels about it.

Let the speculation on home port begin!

I'm guessing that Odyssey will be the replacement for Anthem in NJ, while Anthem takes a more permanent position in Europe, which would give Royal some additional winter-season sailing options in that region. Purely basing this on how Anthem replaced Quantum, which was originally ported in NJ as well, plus the fact that all Q-class ships are designed for colder weather sailings.

Apart from NJ and Seattle, which would be problematic for Anthem to get to since she's too big for Panamax, what cold-weather ports could Odyssey call home? Honest question, since she can't fit under the bridge to go to Baltimore and I'm not sure if it would be worthwhile to Royal to home port her in Boston while keeping another Q-class vessel in NJ.
