Quantum of the Seas joined the Royal Caribbean fleet in October 2014. This incredible superliner elevates cruising to a completely different level and will amaze you from the moment you step aboard. As the cruise line's inaugural Quantum Class ship, she was the first to showcase innovative features such as: the North Star glass capsule, RipCord by iFly skydiving experience, Two70 technology and entertainment, Bionic Bar with robotic bartenders, and SeaPlex active space with the first dodgems at sea. It has superb eating venues with the new Dynamic Dining experience, as well as SMART check-in facilities for a speedy service and RFID WOWbands for making payments at sea.
Life on-board is all about doing as little or as much as you wish. Learn to surf like a professional on the FlowRider surf-simulator or meet the challenge of the rock climbing wall. Splash around in the H20 Zone mini-water park or chill-out at the child-free solarium. Fun times are on the cards for kids with the Adventure Ocean Youth Programme, or throw on some roller skates and take a glide across the rink. Joion in an exercise class in the ship's fitness centre or indulge with a hot stone massage at Vitality at Sea Spa. On top of this, Quantum of the Seas docks in exciting ports with sightseeing and adventures on the agenda.
There's plenty to tempt your taste buds in the on-board restaurants and eateries too. Windjammer Marketplace is the ship's casual eating, serve-yourself dining venue, and also features 24-hour The Grill for rotisserie chicken, Philly cheesesteaks and all-day breakfasts. Feast on gourmet hot dogs in the SeaPlex Dog House, or enjoy snacks, sandwiches, pastries and drinks in Cafe Promenade. Picnic-style The Cafe @ Two70 serves toasted sandwiches, custom-made salads and homemade soups, while Grand Suite and Pinnacle Members have exclusive access to the fusion of Mediterranean and Californian cuisines at Coastal Kitchen.
A selection of speciality restaurants enhances the on-board culinary journey. Johnny Rockets all-American diner serves up sides, shakes, hamburgers, and desserts. Venture into the unique Wonderland restaurant, which presents post-modern cuisine based on elements: Ice, Sun, Fire, Earth, Water and Dreams. American Icon Grill offers the best comfort foods in a setting reminiscent of the classic American roadster, while you can savour contemporary cuisines including prime beef, Maine lobster, dry-aged steaks, and irresistible desserts at Chic eatery. The Grande Restaurant harks back to a sophisticated bygone era with formal dining on timeless classics, but you can also enjoy the exotic Far East and Asian dishes that adorn Silk Restaurant's menu.
Chops Grille American Steakhouse serves hand-cut prime beef steaks, veal parmesan, grilled branzino, Maine lobster and delicious desserts; and the adjoining Chef's Table presents a five-course gourmet menu with wine tasting. Jamie's Italian by Jamie Oliver is his first seafaring venture, featuring a menu of rustic Italian recipes, freshly-made pastas, and specials such as Jamie's Italian Meat Plank. Authentic New York pizzas are served in Sorrento's, and sushi and sashimi treats are made-to-order in the Izumi eatery. But don't worry if you're just after a light bite, you can savour the healthy menu of firm favourites at Devinly Decadence - all less than 500 calories.
From beers and smoothies in the sun to champagne and cocktails after dark, the plethora of bars and lounges on-board Quantum of the Seas offer something for everyone. No need to wander too far from your tanning-spot with The Pool Bar and Sky Bar only steps away. Smoothies, cocktails and healthy drinks are served at The Sunshine Bar, while Music Hall has two bars that serve a wide choice of drinks and musically-inspired cocktails. Lively salsa music accompanies refreshments in the Latin-themed Boleros or you can discover piano music and quizzes at Schooner Bar. Michael's Genuine Pub serves Michael Swartz's craft beer and signature cocktails, while robotic bartenders tend to your drinks at Bionic Bar. Lovers of good wine can sip their favourite glass of Chardonnay or Shiraz in the relaxed setting of Vintages Wine Bar, or others can head towards Two70 for a long menu of hot drinks and cocktails. The North Star Bar is the perfect pit-stop after a trip on the North Star ride and specialises in signature cocktails, champagne and panoramic views.
The night-time scene on Quantum of the Seas can't fail to impress. Thrilling musical extravaganzas and production shows hit the stage each night in The Royal Theatre. Once evening hits, Two70 transforms into an entertainment venue like no other with dancing, robotics, video projections, and headlining artistes, while Music Hall hosts live bands, dancing, signature parties and tribute acts.
