Royal Caribbean Beats Its Own Game With New Quantum Class

If you thought Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas were game changers, think again. It seems the cruise line is at it again, this time changing its own game. Vicki Freed, Senior Vice President of Sales for Royal Caribbean shed more light on the company's new Quantum class of ships at this year's International Conference in Orlando.

"We have an aggressive new build plan," Freed says. Coming soon will be the Quantum of the Seas, followed by the Anthem of the Seas.

Here is what future cruisers have to look forward to:

This titan of a ship will debut North Star, an observation pod that soars high above the ship and gives 360-degree views of the ocean. The ship will also have the "270" lounge area, which will transform throughout the day from a place to sit and snack, or have a sexy cocktail or enjoy nightly performances. There will also be a three-story video wall in the lounge area. Quantum of the Seas will be the first cruise ship to have bumper cars at sea. There will also be a music hall with two floors of music and entertainment.

This was just a taste of what cruisers can expect. To see a video of the ship itself visit
