Royal Caribbean International Newsflash: Quantum Experience Advisor Dhani Jones

Athlete and adventurer Dhani Jones (a former National Football League player for 11 seasons in the USA) has been named Quantum Experience Advisor for Sports and Fitness. He will be creating a game plan for active cruising onboard Quantum of the Seas and has been collaborating with Royal Caribbean’s guest activities team in Miami to create a playbook for thrills and excitement onboard. Jones has been lending his expertise on the latest active trends and providing fresh ideas for Quantum’s SeaPlex, the largest sports and entertainment complex at sea – which will feature first-at-sea innovations such as bumper cars, roller skating and a circus school, complete with a flying trapeze. The next few months will see Jones sampling the existing programs and signature innovations found only on Royal Caribbean, while adding his trademark touches to distinct spaces onboard Quantum of the Seas, including four custom-themed SeaPods which will be found on the mezzanine level of the SeaPlex and will offer spectacular views of the sea. Jones also will help influence programming in the adjacent Sports Deck, which serves up signature Royal Caribbean innovations such as the rock-climbing wall, the FlowRider surf simulator and RipCord by iFLY, 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. The new Quantum class will debut in November 2014 with Quantum of the Seas, followed by her sister-ship Anthem of the Seas in April 2015. The Quantum-class ships span 16 decks, encompass 167,800 gross registered tons, carry 4,180 guests at double occupancy and feature 2,090 staterooms.
