      Quantum of the Seas is the first ship in Royal
Caribbean's Quantum class.  At 168,000 gross tons, this
class is much smaller than Royal's Oasis class ships
(220,000 gross tons).  However, the Quantum class is
significantly larger than Royal's Freedom class ships
(155,000 gross tons).  Quantum entered service as the
third largest cruise ship in the world.
  However, Quantum is not just another large Royal
Caribbean cruise ship.  She offers a significantly
different cruise experience than her fleetmates.
  To begin, Quantum has a different look.  The style of
her interior is polished, restrained, contemporary and
upmarket.  Indeed, she could easily fit in with the ships
of Royal's premium sister cruise line Celebrity Cruises.
  The dining is different as well.  There are no assigned
tables or assigned dining times.  Indeed, there is no main
main dining room.  Instead, under Royal's new Dynamic
Dining program, guests can choose between dining in
one of the five complimentary dining venues - - each of
which has a different theme and menu - - or in one of the
specialty restaurants.  Royal is rolling out this concept
into its existing fleet but it means that those ships will be
changing to be like Quantum rather than the other way
around.
  Speaking of restaurants, Quantum has versions of some
of the more popular Royal Caribbean specialty venues.  
However, it also has four new specialty restaurants,
three of them conceived in association with celebrity
chefs.
  Quantum also has different entertainment options.  
These include the high tech Two70 venue, the Seaplex,
and the Music Hall.  As a result, guests have more
choices as to what to do with evenings onboard.
  As such, Quantum marks a step forward in the new
model of cruising.  Under the classic model of cruising,
guests had very few choices as to dining or
entertainment. An evening revolved around dinner in the
main dining room and a show in the ship's theater. Ships
like
Oasis of the Seas and Norwegian Epic forged a new
model in which guests have real options as to both
dining and entertainment.  Quantum takes the new model
a step further by presenting even more choices.
    
Note: In the Spring 2015, Quantum transferred its
base to China.  The ship was altered to appeal to the
Chinese market.  Among other things, changes
included expansion of the casino and changes to the
shops.  This article shows Quantum as she was when
she was serving the North American market.

PHOTO TOUR
AND
COMMENTARY
Quantum does not have a traditional Guest Services
Desk resembling the reception desk at a hotel.  
Instead,
Guest Services is a room containing
several small stations where guests can interact with
the ship's staff (right).

The
Shore Excursions Office (below) and the Next
Cruise Office
(below right) follow this same model.

In part, this non-traditional approach reflects the fact
that Quantum is a smart ship and many things that
once had to be done in person can now be done
online.

As has become standard on Royal Caribbean ships, Quantum has an extensive (and
sometimes whimsical) collection of contemporary art.  The most visible of the works is
Lawrence Argent's "From Afar," a 30-foot high magenta polar bear.  "Crossing" by Paul
Villinski extends through eight decks and contains 210 butterflies.  In the Via rotunda is
Soo Sunny Park's "Waves of Light."  Peter Sarkisian's Dreamride incorporates a video of a
most unusual drive.

In addition to the art works, the interior elements have been designed to be visually
appealing.

Running through the public
areas on Decks 4 and 5 is the
Royal Esplanade.  Done in a
sophisticated contemporary
style, this thoroughfare presents
a much different atmosphere
than the Royal Promenades on
prior Royal Caribbean ships.
Running aft on Deck 5 is the even more elegant Via.
