Royal Caribbean's Quantum of the Seas to Sail Transatlantic Voyages from Southampton

Royal Caribbean International's Quantum of the Seas will be making its inaugural eight-night westbound transatlantic voyage from Southampton on Nov. 2, 2014, arriving in the New York area at Cape Liberty Port, New Jersey, on Nov. 10. Bookings for Quantum of the Seas opened to loyalty program members on May 28, 2013 and to the general public on June 4.

This is another first for the port of Southampton, which will also play host in 2014 to the world’s largest cruise ship, Oasis of the Seas, on its first ever European season and transatlantic sailing out of a UK port of call, which generated the highest ever volume of pre-booking registrations ever seen by Royal Caribbean International.

Quantum of the Seas will offer a skydiving experience, the largest indoor sports and entertainment complex at sea with bumper cars and roller skating and the cruise line’s largest staterooms. For an overview aboard Quantum of the Seas, visit here.

Quantum class will debut in autumn 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 feature 2,090 staterooms.  More information on Quantum of the Seas is available at
