Quantum of the Seas

Quantum of the Seas

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.

Additional details of the Quantum-class can be found at the RCCL website.

    Mother of god…what an absolute eyesore. Hideous hideous hideous. The designers should be tarred and feathered for unleashing that pile of excriment on the world’s oceans. How many people? 4,180? Boy, being crammed aboard a boat with all those people sounds like a fun “vacation” to me!

      Entirely agree with Capt. Geest. The bigger the size the bigger the money earned. Hence to hell with quality, its the quantity that matters to the owners/managers.

    Agree w/ Capt. Geest. An unspeakable monstrosity.

    My immediate reaction was that it a wrecking ball for built in obsolescence.I should not want to go to sea in such a craft. She has all that top hamper, but probably very little draft. A potentially dangerous combination.

    Bigger is not better. Only the small, be they structures or animals, survive.

    “Apparently, there is a point in development when it ceases to be a true progress–in trade, in games, in the marvellous handiwork of men, and even in their demands and desires and aspirations of the moral and mental kind. There is a point when progress, to remain a real advance, must change slightly the direction of its line.”

    –Joseph Conrad, “Some Reflections on the Loss of the Titanic”
