Royal Caribbean unveils details of next generation ships

Royal Caribbean International has unveiled first details of the next generation of cruise vacations – Quantum cruising, which offer guests new experiences including skydiving at sea, an indoor entertainment complex with bumper cars and roller skating, and larger staterooms.

The Quantum class of ships promises to introduce more game-changing “firsts at sea” such as a skydiving experience, which transports guests more than 300 feet in the air; transformative venues including the largest indoor sports and entertainment complex at sea with bumper cars, roller skating and more; and the cruise line’s largest and most advanced staterooms ever. 

These new, larger staterooms enable innovation in design, storage and comfort including the industry’s first virtual balconies.  Every stateroom on Quantum of the Seas will have a view.

“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,” explains Richard D. Fain, chairman & CEO, Royal Caribbean Cruises. 

“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.” Added Richard.


The details were unveiled by stage, television and film star, Kristin Chenoweth – Godmother of Quantum of the Seas – at an exclusive event for media and special guests in New York City.  Quantum of the Seas is expected to debut in autumn 2014 while Anthem of the Seas will launch the following spring.
