Quantum of the Seas Cruises

Even the most ardent thrill-seeker likes certain reassuring comforts and the massive Quantum Class ships in Royal Caribbean International's fleet offer the perfect combination of adrenaline inducing activities and tried-and-tested favourites.

The first Quantum class ships will be called Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas, and are due out in November 2014 and the Spring of 2015. Book now by emailing us at cruises@southafrica.to.

From May 2015 the Quantum of the Seas will position itself in China.

Everyone has their Favourite

As comforting as a hug from an old friend, all the features that have become firm favourites and synonymous with Royal Caribbean will still be in place. Not completely a case of out with the old and in with the new here. On the top deck, you will find the ever popular adults-only Solarium, an outdoor pool, an indoor pool with adjustable roof and the H2O Zone for children. (Our daughter loved this on the Liberty of the Seas.) Other popular places include the Rock Climbing Wall; FlowRider surf simulator; the Adventure Ocean children’s program; the Royal Babies and Tots Nursery; and the DreamWorks entertainment crew.

Mamma Mia...here I go again...When the Quantum of the Seas sets sail in Nov 2014 she'll be featuring the musical "Mamma Mia".

Due to sail in the 2014 / 2015 winter season (northern hemisphere winter), these two new ships herald a new range of fantastic experiences and venues, as well as state-of the-art accommodation options. Neither ship will rival the Oasis of the Seas in size, both being smaller, but they will rival her with their new attractions and gizmos.

Itineraries

Royal Caribbean International has announced that Quantum of the Seas will depart on its inaugural transatlantic cruise on the 2nd of November 2014 from the port of Southampton. The ship will arrive at Cape Liberty port in New Jersey on the 10th of November 2014 at the end of this eight night cruise.

There will be 4 routes - 12 nights in the Southern Caribbean, departing from Cape Liberty (New Jersey, USA) and calling at Labadee (a private Royal Caribbean island), San Juan, Philipsburg, Basseterre, Fort de France and Bridgetown; a 7 or 8 nights Bahamas cruise; and 8 or 11 nights in the Eastern Caribbean.

Wow Experience

Appropriately calling it the "WOW Experience", Royal Caribbean has certainly come up trumps with some world-firsts at sea. Wow cold be an understatement! The new line-up includes RipCord by iFly® - a skydiving simulator. This will give passengers the chance to experience the rush of a skydive, without the danger. Flying like Peter Pan in a controlled setting? Yes please!

Next on the bill is North Star. Think the Stratosphere in Las Vegas! North Star is a glass chamber on the end of a mechanical "arm" that will smoothly elevate you upwards of 90 metres above the sea for spectacular 360 degree views of the ship, ocean and ports of call. And not just up, but out. Out over the side of the ship. A glass bottomed ride that will not be the love of anyone suffering from vertigo!

Novel venues

WIth 3 new venues added to the current wide range, you will be hard-pressed to choose where to head to next when on-board. Two70° is cutting edge - two and a half decks of floor to ceiling glass windows during the day, with a 270 degree view of the sea, whilst at night the windows transform into a massive digital display with resplendent scenery, complementing light shows par-non and live entertainment, including aerial artists.

If basketball is your game, stop in at the SeaPlex. This will be the largest indoor sports and entertainment area at sea. It will be the spot to let loose and get in touch with your fun side. During the day there will be offerings such as a circus school with trapeze or a full size basketball court. At night, bring the kids ready for bumper cars (dodgems), roller skating rink (remember the ice-rink on Liberty of the Seas?) or get down and boogie with the DJ who will be in the floating booth suspended above all the action.

Speaking of music, make sure you stop by the Music Hall. This will be the spot for live music - bands, djs, musicians. With 2 stories for your par-tay, there is enough space to not be squashed like a sardine, but it is small enough to enjoy the performances without the feeling of being in a cavernous stadium.

Staterooms - all with a "view"

Now every stateroom will have a view - real or not. Interior (no window) cabins will have a virtual balcony, displaying real-time views of the ocean or destinations. This is perfect for when you are on a budget, but are put off by not having a view. For those at the other end of the scale, loooking for lavish luxury, the Loft Suites will strike a chord. Two stories of sumptuousness - private dining area, dedicated concierge, sweeping views and if you are in a Royal Loft Suite, a private whirlpool (jacuzzi).
