Royal Caribbean International on Tuesday unveiled the long awaited details of the company’s new generation Quantum-class ships.
“This new generation of ships gave us an opportunity to make another leap in vessel design. Innovation has always been part of our DNA and we have taken advantage of all that creativity to design Quantum cruising,” said Richard D. Fain, chairman & CEO, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd. “The unique features on Quantum will boggle our guests’ minds, but the real strength of the design is how our people have integrated all these diverse components to create a comfortable and exciting experience.”
Rather than rattling off each new guest amenity in about 5,000 words, check out this video featuring some Quantum-class highlights:
The 167,800 grt Quantum ships will span 18 decks, with accommodation for 4,180 guests in 2,090 staterooms. Once delivered the ships will be the second largest in the RCCL fleet, behind the Oasis-class and just ahead of the Freedom-class.
The Quantum-class will debut in fall 2014 with Quantum of the Seas, followed by her sister-ship Anthem of the Seas in spring 2015. Quantum of the Seas will sail out of the New York Harbor from her homeport of Cape Liberty on 7- to 12-night itineraries during the winter 2014/15 season.
Construction of the Quantum of the Seas began in February 2013 at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.
