Quantum of the Seas Overview

By Cruiseline.com - Updated Aug. 26, 2019

Packed with revolutionary amenities, exotic dining options, and the latest onboard technology, Quantum of the Seas appeals to active travelers who want the ultimate Royal Caribbean cruise experience while they explore popular southeast Asian destinations. As the first of its class, this mega-ship introduced a host of cutting-edge and previously unheard of amenities when it debuted in 2014. Passengers can catch a wave on the FlowRider, take flight in the wind-powered iFLY skydiving simulator, or enjoy family-friendly fun and games in the SeaPlex entertainment center which includes bumper cars, a roller rink, an arcade, and a high-flying circus school.

Whether you want to hit the dance floor, watch a live band, or catch a family-friendly show, Quantum has endless options for entertainment. Royal Caribbean developed three dazzling programs specifically for Quantum of the Seas: the Sonic Odyssey percussion extravaganza, the pop, and jazz-fueled Starwater, and Two70, a futuristic blend of traditional theatrics and music with advanced multimedia technology.

The Quantum of the Seas cruise ship also has a laid-back side. On the North Star observation deck, which is the highest at sea, you can experience 360-degree views from the best seat in the house. The ship’s Solarium offers a tranquil adult-oriented atmosphere exclusively for suite and diamond-level guests, and numerous lounges serve up signature cocktails and relaxed vacation vibes. Dining on Quantum includes Royal Caribbean fan favorites like sushi at Izumi, Tuscan fare at Jamie's Italian by Jamie Oliver, or a prime steak at Chops Grille. Since the ship is primarily aimed towards the Asian market, some options have a distinctly Asian feel, like the authentic hot pot experience at The Solarium Bistro.

Quantum of the Seas itineraries includes 4- to 12-night cruises that depart from Singapore, Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong for destinations across Southeast Asia. Popular ports of call include Phuket, Thailand; Nagasaki, Japan; and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Exiting Royal Caribbean Cruise by osmanaly1

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The Quantum of the Seas Ship is the largest ship I have ever cruised on. The state of the art theaters are outstanding. There are many venues to keep you busy and interested.

Very disappointed!!! by kuuleilovesdelane

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

I was very very disappointed with the service, staff, food, and people onboard... Service sucked, My stateroom host wasn’t consistent and I hardly ever seen her or got welcomed by her. The Man that was serving the ice cream cones had no gloves and we complained about that.

Unbelievable Ship by missmc123

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Quantum of the Seas is an unbelievably beautiful ship. It is brand new and gorgeous beyond expectations. The artwork throughout is stunning and the public areas are so beautiful.  I stayed in the owner suite and it was so roomy and deluxe. We were treated like royalty by the crew. Being on a ship that was almost 90% asian passengers may be difficult for some people, however, because we were in a suite, the amenities gave us a break from the general population.  The cruise is definitely catering to the Asian market, so do not be surprised to find that things are not like a RCCL that sails out of the US.  The food in the buffet was geared toward Asian tastes but the specialty restaurants were awesome and great fun. I highly recommend staying in a suite to have the ability to work with a concierge and get a little break from the crowds. Well worth the extra price for access to the private dining room alone!

Head to the Solarium - it's beautiful, quiet, and feels like a tropical oasis. Also - sign up for iFly and other special amenities as soon as you get on the ship!
