Royal Caribbean International announced the Quantum Experience Advisors program which includes a group of celebrity experts in fields such as design, sports & fitness, entertainment and others who will work hand-in-hand with Royal Caribbean’s internal teams to provide their expertise to help shape interior design, amenities and activities on the Quantum-class. Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas are set to debut in November 2014 and April 2015 respectively.
The Quantum Experience Advisors are lending their professional insight towards ensuring every aspect of the guest experience has been maximized. They are actively involved in making decisions that will make a lasting impression on the Quantum class of ships, and developing new programs for guests to enjoy. Royal Caribbean is documenting the process through a series of online videos allowing guests to follow along and get an inside glimpse of the Advisors in action.
Starting with design, Royal Caribbean has partnered with interior designer Genevieve Gorder as the Quantum Experience Advisor for design. Gorder is collaborating with Royal Caribbean’s newbuild and design team to offer insights and opinions and influence the décor and furnishings of the loft and suite accommodations onboard Quantum of the Seas.
Since May 2013, Gorder has been participating in collaborative design sessions where she involved herself in the ship’s design process and has reviewed plans, fabrics, carpets and furnishings for the ship’s accommodations. The sessions allowed Gorder and the design team to provide a more cohesive look and feel to the onboard suites and lofts. Her soulful and whimsical style will be felt throughout the lofts and suites and many of her signature touches such as color, fabric and patterns will be incorporated throughout the design. The next few months will find the design team visiting Gorder’s hometown of New York City to see what inspires her as well as a trip to the see the ship being built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. The entire process will be documented and shared at www.RoyalCaribbean.com/QuantumoftheSeas.
In addition to Genevieve Gorder, Royal Caribbean will be revealing several other Quantum Experience Advisors in the coming months.
The new Quantum-class will debut in fall 2014 with Quantum of the Seas, followed by her sister-ship Anthem of the Seas in spring 2015. Quantum ships span 16 decks, encompass 167,800 gross registered tons, carry 4,180 guests at double occupancy and have 2,090 staterooms.
