The cruise life just got a little better
As the saying goes, “You haven’t lived, until you’ve cruised.” But what about a cruise makes it so special? Between the number of different ports, excursions, and ships, how do you choose? Is it the ports of call? Is it the excursions? Or, is it the ship itself? If you enjoy a ship with limitless activities on board, Royal Caribbean’s new ship is sure to “float your boat” (Forgive us for the bad pun).
Yesterday Royal Caribbean made waves in the cruise industry by introducing their newest ship that will set sail in 2014, the Quantum of the Seas. Royal Caribbean chairman Richard Fain was quoted saying, “We wanted to come up with something that was measurably more exciting” with the newest ship. And they surely accomplished that! There was a lot of buzz around the reveal event, including millions of people following on twitter, sharing their favorite features of the ship.
Some of the most talked about features aboard the Quantum of the Seas includes:
The North Star observation tower, inspired by the London Eye, will accommodate around 13 people and lift you 300ft above the ocean surface. And better yet? You can get married in the North Star!
SeaPlex will be the largest indoor active space at sea. It will feature a full-size indoor basketball court, bumper cars, circus school, floating DJ pod, and roller-skating. No reason to be bored on the ship with all these activities!
RipCord by iFly
Have a love for skydiving? Or maybe you want to try flying in a controlled environment? Aboard Quantum of the Seas you can experience the thrill of skydiving with RipCord by iFly, the first skydiving simulator at sea.
With their latest unveiling Royal Caribbean International has also indicated staterooms will be 9% larger and families will have the option of having connected staterooms. And on the subject of staterooms, would you rather have an inside cabin but miss the view? Don’t worry, Quantum of the Seas will feature inside cabins with 82” LED screens to give virtual balconies!
Despite it being smaller than their Oasis Class, Royal Caribbean didn’t skimp on luxury when it came to the Quantum of the Seas. Fain stated, “Our objective is to build the best, not to build the biggest” when asked why the smaller ship. Let’s be honest though, with all the great amenities Quantum of the Seas provides, who is worried about the ship being slightly smaller?
While most would say you haven’t lived until you’ve cruised, we’re convinced you haven’t lived until you’ve cruised on the Quantum of the Seas. So will you be awaiting your chance to experience Quantum of the Seas? Tell us what you’re most excited about on the new ship!
Quantum of the Seas will sail from Cape Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey to the Bahamas and the Caribbean for 7 or 12 nights durations in the winter 2014/15 season.
