Are you wondering what is available of the new Quantum of the Seas cruise ship from Royal Caribbean? Well let me be the first to tell you how amazing this ship is! Not only did the technological aspects of this ship wow me but the entertainment and food were extraordinary too!
Number 1- RipCord by iFly®,
I was dying to see and try the RipCord by iFly®, the first skydiving simulator at sea. How cool is this idea? You are taken into an area and shown an instructional video, then you change into your own flight suit, complete with helmet, goggles and ear plugs. You then venture up a winding staircase to the wind tunnel. Your anticipation mounts as the instructors take you one by one into the wind chamber for your flying experience. They make sure you are in the right position and then they let you fly. Awesome!
Number 2 – North StarSM
Next on the list, North StarSM, an awe—inspiring experience where a jewel-like glass capsule takes guests on a spectacular journey more than 300 feet in the air to deliver unprecedented 360-degree views. The lines for this feature were long on this inaugural sailing but totally worth the views and photos. We were lucky enough to be the first ones on line for this site and were joined by Chairman Richard Fien for our ride in the North Star. You could tell how much pride he has in this new vessel by his retelling of stories of when it was being built. A purely memorable experience.
Number 3 – SeaPlex Sports Complex
Bumper Cars and roller-skating too? Oh my what a treat for the kids and adults alike. The indoor Seaplex offers a variety of different activities on different days. They offered circus trapeze school, pick up basketball games, XBOX lounge, arcade and many other activities.
Number 4 –The Music Hall
One of my favorite places on the ship was the Music Hall. They offer nightly entertainment so you can kick up your heels and dance the night away. We saw a Journey cover band and they had the entire room up on their feet dancing and singing along to “Don’t Stop Believing”.
Number 5 – The Artwork
Something else that I thought was really interesting was the choice of art work on the ship. There were many kinetic sculptures and contemporary technical installation pieces. I loved that they all evoked a sense of whimsy and fun from the monumental bear sculpture located by the outdoor rock wall to the art in each stairwell.
Disclosure: I was given the opportunity to be a part of the pre-inaugral sailing. All opinions are my own and yours may vary.
