Royal Caribbean Takes a “Quantum” Leap Forward

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Royal Caribbean InternationalRoyal Caribbean is growing by leaps and bounds. The contemporary cruise company announced that they are hard at work on a new Quantum Class of ships. The Quantum Class will consist of two ships, Quantum of the Seas, which will make its debut in the fall of 2014, and Anthem of the Seas, which will follow in the spring of 2015.

These ships are currently being constructed at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany and promise to “WOW” with innovative features and designs. “Throughout our history we have made huge strides in cruise ship design and innovation and the Quantum class will be no exception,” said Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd.

Allure of the SeasThis announcement comes just weeks after Royal Caribbean informed the world that they are  adding an additional ship to their latest Oasis Class of ships. The addition will be a sister ship to the very popular Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas and is expected to embark on its first cruise in 2016.

The new addition will allow Royal Caribbean to showcase innovative features like the FlowRider surf simulator, ice skating rinks and rock climbing walls to a significant number of additional guests. The Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas both have 16 decks and hold 5,400 guests in 2,700 staterooms, and this third Oasis Class ship will be similar.

This third Oasis Class ship is being built by STX France, which has also offered Royal Caribbean plans to develop a similar fourth Oasis Class vessel. Royal Caribbean has a year to decide on this contract. If they move forward, STX France estimates a new ship arriving mid-2018.

Are you excited to sail on these new ships? What new features do you think will debut on the Quantum of the Seas?

We missed our first cruise on the BIG ships, were scheduled for the Oasis in early February. Spent the next four months in the hospital from late January.
We went on the Allure last year and are booked on the Adventurer for next week. Love those big ships.

I can’t wait for the inaugural cruise of the Quantum of the Seas.
We were on the maiden voyage of the Allure…awesome. Then booked the Oasis a few months later. Both ships were great….no lines….we were wondering where all the people were. Was on the Allure again this year with a Boardwalk balcony instead of outer balcony. Still was able to see the ocean from the bow. Great ships…kudos Royal Caribbean you’re the best.
