Royal Caribbean International’s newest ship, Spectrum of the Seas, features new digital experiences, from immersive augmented reality games to virtual reality trampolining.

The first Quantum Ultra Class ship, which made its debut in China last month, also boasts digital room keys, laser tag, karaoke, and a surf simulator.

“Royal Caribbean has always been known for innovating and pushing the boundaries, and Spectrum of the Seas is a great example of this,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.

“Spectrum brings to life the best of Royal Caribbean along with curated experiences for our Chinese consumers.”

Attractions on Spectrum include Sky Pad, a virtual reality (VR) bungee trampoline experience where guests can wear VR headsets for three new games – Jump Rally, Sugar Leap, and Bass Bouncer. Guests can opt out of wearing a headset and enjoy views of the ocean as they bounce.

The ship also offers Battle for Planet Z, a glow-in-the-dark laser tag adventure, as well as Star Moment, a karaoke venue.

Expedition Two70 features four immersive AR games, while SeaPlex, a multipurpose indoor sports and entertainment complex, offers activities including ball games, fencing and archery.

Royal Caribbean has also developed three new shows for Spectrum – The Silk Road, The Effectors, and Showgirl! Past. Present. Future. Each show features immersive technology and special effects.

When it comes to cutting-edge tech, Spectrum of the Seas has various digital experiences, such as digital room keys, automated stateroom controls, and the Royal Caribbean mobile app.

Other amenities on Spectrum include swimming pools, whirlpools, a surf simulator, rock-climbing wall, and outdoor movie screen.

Earlier this year, Royal Caribbean International unveiled a $250 million private island with its own water park, the Caribbean’s largest wave pool, and the highest vantage point in The Bahamas.

Perfect Day at CocoCay is the first in the cruise line’s new Perfect Day Island Collection. Guests can visit the private island by sailing on 11 of the cruise line’s ships.
