Quantum Adventures

RipCord by iFly

Using wind tunnel technology, RipCord by iFly let's you skydive...that's right skydive for the first time on a cruise ship. Only there's no need for a plane on this exhilirating adventure. You are enclosed in a glass tube, where beforehand you will be take a quick training class, suit up and then feel the the thrill of freefall in no time!

North Star

Go to the highest point on the entire ship, in an extendable eye-looking arm. This crane like device will extend you over 300 feet above sea level and you will get a complete 360 degree view of the ocean and beyond. If you have ever been on a plane over the open seas, you know what that view is like. But that's out of a little window. Imagine everywhere you look is nothing but ocean. Through crystal clear windows the ocean shining will be sure to capture you physically and emotionally.

Two70

Two70 is the most incredible cruising experience available. At sea by day and anywhere in the world by night, Two70 uses projectors and state of the art robotics to transform the windows of the main hall of Quantum of the Seas, into a paradise in the rainforest or an arctic tundra. They are ever changing and will make for an incredible dining, relaxing, or adventurous cruising.

Ports You'll Visit

On the inaugural cruise there are plenty of things to do at the ports you'll stop at

Port Canaveral

The theme parks including, Walt Disney World and Universal Studios is less than an hour away from port. If you have time and have never been, this should be the number one choice destination out of Port Canaveral. Kennedy Space Center is a mere minutes away and is home to a space museum the likes of which you can't see anywhere else, except for space...If you want to relax instead Cocoa Beach is just down the street and offers a different kind of experience.

Nassau and Coco Cay, Bahamas

A beach lovers paradise. Bahamas is lined with tree filled streets and soft sand. A lot of people like to travel to the Atlantis resort which is connected by bridge. There are casinos to gamble in and boat excursions to partake in. You can swim with dolphins or drink the day away in the beautiful sunshine.

Quantum Technology

Sometimes there is no price for comfort and accessibility. Quantum of the Seas makes that a reality. Whether its making sure your transition from Dock to ship is easy and fluid, or its easy access to your suite or stateroom. Royal Caribbean has you covered.

Smart Check-In

We know you hate that pesky check-in process that everyone must go through before boarding. Now you can get this process out of the way at home anytime before you leave. Upload a picture of yourself, your boarding information and receive a digital boarding confirmation. When you get to port simply show your confirmation and you'll be on board within 10 minutes. No Hassle or waiting or lines, because that's so 2013!

Speaking of mobility and being connected...

Smart Concierge

Royal IQ is a new app specifically for Quantum of the Seas. Available for iOS and Android Phones, this app helps you plan your entire vacation seamlessly beforehand or during your cruise. You can book excursions, make spa appointments or anything else. You get to choose or adjust what you do, when you do it and how you do it, all from your mobile phone.

Smart Connect

Quantum of the Seas has wireless internet throughout the whole ship based on O3B satellite technology that beams internet straight to the ship and gives you speeds of those equaled to land. Here's one for the record books....

FACT: Quantum of the seas has more bandwidth (amount of data available, for non-computer experts) than every ship in the world COMBINED!
