Royal Caribbean Orders Third Quantum Class Ship

Royal Caribbean Cruises has signed a contract for a third Quantum class cruise ship for delivery in mid-2016. The 4,180-passenger vessel, as yet unnamed, will join sister ships Quantum of the Seas, due to enter service in 2014, and Anthem of the Seas, due to take to the seas in 2015. Royal Caribbean Quantum of the Seas

The cruise line said that the ships have a configuration with a greater proportion of higher priced staterooms, which “achieves some of the greatest energy efficiencies at sea”.

Adam Goldstein, President and Chief Executive of Royal Caribbean International, said: “We are encouraged by the very positive response we received from travel agents and consumers when we first announced some of the unprecedented offerings on Quantum class last month.

“The Quantum class will offer vacationers more unexpected activities in the most extraordinary spaces, and a third ship will offer even more opportunities for vacationers to experience Quantum cruising.”

Quantum cruising will have several ‘firsts’, such as a skydiving experience, the largest indoor sports and entertainment complex at sea with bumper cars, roller skating and more, and the cruise line’s largest and most advanced staterooms.
