Despite carrying the "ultra" tag, the ships are only a tiny bit larger than their Quantum class fleetmates - 168,800 gross tons versus 168,666 gross tons.

El Loco Fresh: A grab-and-go Mexican eatery located on the pool deck and featuring items like tacos, burritos, quesadillas and an array of fresh salsas.

Giovanni's Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar ($): Royal Caribbean is rolling out this new take on its signature Italian trattoria, which offers up a menu of rustic Italian dishes, from hand-tossed pizzas fresh out of the oven to charcuterie, and beyond. The "wine" part of the menu features a wide selection of wines and limoncellos from many of Italy’s well-known regions.

Teppanyaki ($): Odyssey of the Seas will be the first Royal Caribbean ship to sail in North America to offer this hibachi-style Japanese eatery.

Chop's Grille ($): Royal Caribbean's signature steakhouse.

Izumi ($): Royal Caribbean's signature sushi and sashimi dining venue.

Wonderland ($): This unique dining experience offers a dreamscape menu of adventurous dishes presented in an Alice in Wonderland-inspired setting.

Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade ($): The line's popular sports bar and pub is located within the SeaPlex complex on Odyssey of the Seas and offers up a variety of pub grub (chicken wings, burgers, sliders, fries, etc.) and ice-cold beers.

Odyssey of the Seas will be jam-packed with recreational activities including some of the line's most adrenaline-pumping activities: FlowRider surfing, RipCord by iFly skydiving simulator, rock climbing wall, SkyPad bungee trampoline VR experience, and a reimagined SeaPlex.

The SeaPlex on Odyssey will have bumper cars and trapeze classes, but the upper level will be dominated by a virtual reality playground for individual and group play, with augmented reality walls and floors. The lower level, which has the full sports court, will also double as a glow-in-the-dark laser tag course during select times.

Other recreation and entertainment attractions onboard will be the North Star capsule observation space, Two70 multi-dimensional theater, Music Hall and the Bionic Bar.

The pool deck will take up two levels and offer two open-air, resort-style pools and four whirlpools, all surrounded by lounge chairs, shady casitas and hammocks. Near the pools will be The Lime & Coconut, serving up two stories of pool-front views, liquid fun and live music from morning to night.

For the younger cruisers, Splashaway Bay will feature colorful waterslides, fountains, water cannons and more.

As with all Royal Caribbean ships, Odyssey of the Seas will have an adults-only Solarium. On Odyssey, the space will have swimming pools, hot tubs, day beds and a full-service bar.

Odyssey of the Seas will debut in November 2020 in Fort Lauderdale, with six- and eight-night Caribbean cruises to ports that will include Curacao, Aruba, Grand Cayman and Mexico.

The ship is under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.
