Royal Caribbean International said a ship it is building for delivery in 2019 will be deployed in Asia.

The first of the line’s “Quantum Ultra” vessels will be the “next evolution of the groundbreaking Quantum class,” Royal Caribbean said. Two Quantum-class ships, Quantum of the Seas and Ovation of the Seas, currently sail in China.

As part of a series of deployments announced for 2019, the Mariner of the Seas will reposition to a new home in Miami, embarking on a “Global Odyssey” from Asia that features three long sailings from Singapore to Dubai; Dubai to Barcelona; and Barcelona to Miami.

The Global Odyssey opens for sale on May 2. Voyager of the Seas will have its first full season in Singapore in 2018-19, offering cruises throughout Southeast Asia.

In addition, 2018-19 brings new 10-night open-jaw itineraries between New Zealand and Melbourne or Sydney on the Radiance of the Seas. During the winter, the Ovation of the Seas will reposition to Sydney for its longest season in Australia, reclaiming the title as the largest ship based in the region, Royal Caribbean said.
