Wade and Paula Cunkelman sailed on this shake-down cruise and were able to evaluate the features of the very new and different cruise ship. This ship has bumper-cars, the North Star, RipCord by iFly (lets you simulate Sky-diving), and many very unique features like inside cabins with a virtual balcony view. The Cunkelmans enjoyed a full production of Mama Mia in the theater of this ship. This ship is truly a wow design.
The Quantum is 1,141 feet long and gross tonnage is 167,800 tons. Its guest capacity is 4,180. This ship will complete the scheduled sailings from Cape Liberty, New Jersey to the Caribbean, but will then move to the Orient for home base. However, a sister ship, the Anthem of the Seas, will be sailing the Caribbean when it is completed.
If anyone is interested in learning more about this new Royal Caribbean Quantum class of ship, they can contact Paula or Wade Cunkelman (cruise planners) at 480-883-1722.
