Where Will She Be sailing?

Possibilities are endless with destinations including Malaysia, Vietnam, Japan, China, Indonesia and many more that are yet to be announced.

What Makes Her Quantum Ultra Class?

Japanese Cuisine

To fit in with the Asian theme there are many different restaurants starting with Sichuan Red. Sichuan Red features beautiful décor where the family can feast for hours on delicious cuisine. If you prefer Japanese delicacies, head to Teppanyaki which is named after the traditional style of cooking used, from succulent steaks to mouth-watering seafood, watch it all as it is prepared in front of you. For a more casual experience, Noodle Bar provides the perfect mixture including live demonstrations from expert chefs and freshly made noodles that will leave you in awe. The main restaurant is also now one large restaurant instead of four that you would find on a Quantum Class Ship, serving home-comfort foods and international delights on different themed nights.

Quantum Class Classics

Onboard North Star

Amongst her thirteen decks, 4,180 passengers can enjoy a number of exclusive activities that are have been used on pre-existing Royal Caribbean vessels. Two distinguished attractions making a return are the North Star and Ripcord. The North Star transports guests up to 300-feet above the blue waters below, in a small glass capsule for stunning panoramic views, while Ripcord is a skydiving simulator that lets guests feel the exhilaration of performing a real skydive, without having to leave the comfort of the ship (charges may apply).

Other Quantum Class Classics include, Bionic bars and VR headsets have been included from sister ships, allowing for a more futuristic feeling onboard. If you prefer to be more of a thrill seeker, you can find plenty of action on the top deck, with a rock climbing wall that scales 200-feet above sea level and surf simulator waiting to make perfect family memories.

Other parts of the ship were much quieter, the casino was surprisingly always full. At the theatre we went to a couple of shows both very good one Flamenco and the other Dirty Dancing including the famous jump. Tip-Arrive early the 650 theatre was packed at least 20 minutes before show started.

Finally, there are new ultimate family suites that are perfect for families that are looking to cruise, with a slide from the kids-only bedroom to the lounge area, private 3-D cinema, air hockey table, wraparound balcony with a whirlpool, climbing wall, kid-friendly pool table and 1,134-square foot of space to enjoy. The fun doesn’t end there for the kids, though, as the Seaplex features a bumper car arena and rollerblading area.
