Sister ship in the Quantum class, Anthem of the Seas, will sail out of Fort Lauderdale, FL in the spring of 2015 and the third Quantum class ship will debut in mid-2016.

Quantum of the Seas will include several “firsts” at seas: a skydiving simulator called RipCord by iFly; SeaPlex, the largest sports/entertainment complex at sea; and The North Star, a glass capsule with a bird’s eye view that rises 300 feet above sea level.

Quantum’s sports complex, SeaPlex, offers passengers fun experiences with a bumper car rink, a circus school with trapeze instruction, a full-size regulation basketball court and table tennis. SeaPlex also converts to a dance floor for roller skaters, with a DJ that hovers above in a see-through pod. Two70 features a 270-degree panoramic view that will host aerialists and various performers. Along with SeaPlex, on deck 15, the first food truck at sea will serve snacks for everyone.

There will be an adults-only solarium and an outdoor pool, and a new indoor pool with an operable roof. Families will enjoy Royal Caribbean’s signature children’s programs along with DreamWorks entertainment and fun with characters from Shrek, Kung Fu Panda and Madagascar. And the kids will love the H2O Zone kid’s water park.

Quantum of the Seas will sail out of New Jersey to destinations in the Caribbean and the Bahamas.
