Quantum Tidbits

Some Little Tidbits about Quantum and Anthem of the Seas

As practically everyone knows by now, construction is underway on a new class of Royal Caribbean ships.  The first, Quantum of the Seas is due in November, 2014, with her sister, Anthem of the Seas debuting in April, 2015.  

In size, the Quantum class ships will fall in between two existing classes:  Larger than Freedom of the Seas and her sisters, but smaller than the Oasis class cruise ships.

Cruising solo?  Line up one of the 28 single cabins, called 'studio staterooms,' 12 of which will have balconies.

If you liked the self-leveling pool tables on Royal Caribbean's Radiance class ships, you be pleased to know you'll e able to enjoy them on the new ships, too. 

And, finally, Bayonne.  You could be sailing on the Quantum of the Seas on a 7 - 12 days voyage out of the NEW Bayonne, NJ cruise terminal facility to be constructed by Royal Caribbean.  

If you're anticipating being one of the first to experience her while she still has that 'new ship' smell, then you probably already know that bookings are open for November 2014 through early April of 2015. 

A third ship in the class, due out in 2016, has yet to be given a name.   RCI also has an option for a fourth.
