Cruising’s Quantum Leap Over The Atlantic

June 22, 2013 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Royal Caribbean International has announced that Quantum of the Seas will make her inaugural transatlantic voyage from Southampton on November 2, 2014.

Aussies can now book to be part of the much anticipated eight-night westbound voyage – her first ever commercial cruise – arriving in the New York area at Cape Liberty Port, New Jersey, on November 10, 2014.

Several hundred Australians have already secured their place on board her maiden season of Caribbean cruises which went on sale in May.  Each and every guest will be “WOWed” by this superliner which spans 16 decks, encompasses 167,800 gross registered tons, carries 4,180 guests and features 2,090 staterooms. Building on a legacy of more than 40 years of innovation and creative design, Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas will offer even more game-changing “firsts at sea”.  Unprecedented “WOWs” set to thrill guests include:

The first skydiving experience at sea, which allows everyone from first-time flyers to seasoned skydivers to enjoy the sheer thrill and exhilaration of skydiving in a safe, controlled and simulated environment.

An engineering marvel taking guests to new heights – literally – with a jewel-shaped, glass capsule, transporting them on a spectacular journey more than 300 feet above the ocean and over the sides of the ship to deliver awe-inspiring 360-degree views.

The largest indoor sports and entertainment complex at sea. Guests will be able to experience bumper cars and roller skating, not to mention a circus school with trapeze.

A multi-level great room named for its incredible 270-degree sea views through three-deck high, floor-to-ceiling glass walls at the stern of the ship.

A two-story live music venue!

Royal Caribbean’s new Quantum Class will debut in October 2014 with Quantum of the Seas, followed by her sister-ship Anthem of the Seas in early 2015.

Quantum of the Seas will feature Royal Caribbean’s largest and most advanced staterooms including the industry’s first interior staterooms with Virtual Balconies, ensuring every stateroom on Quantum of the Seas has a view. Plus, Family-Connected staterooms will deliver more flexibility, using three different stateroom categories that connect to form a layout that provides separate bedrooms and bathrooms for all. Also, Royal Caribbean International will introduce new Studio staterooms – some featuring balconies – for single travelers, three new Junior Suite categories, and larger Loft Suites.

The port of Southampton will host two of the world’s three biggest superliners – Oasis of the Seas and Quantum of the Seas – within the month of November 2014, both of which making maiden calls to the English cruise capital before their Transatlantic crossings to the USA.
