Quantum Of The Seas Review
Review of Quantum Of The Seas
The 2014-built Quantum of the Seas is the first Quantum-class Royal Caribbean vessel, with sisterships Anthem OTS (2015) and Ovation OTS (2016). Similarly designed are the "Quantum-Ultra Class" Spectrum OTS (2019) and Odyssey OTS (2020).
Next is shown a Quantum-class ship as looked from above.
History - construction and ownership
Royal Caribbean International (RCI) is a US company, trademarked brand and subsidiary owned by Royal Caribbean Group (RCG/shipowner). RCI was established in 1968 and currently has over 1/5 of the worldwide cruise market. RCI also has RCG's largest fleet by both vessel number and GT tonnage (ship sizes and capacities).
All RCI liners have names ending with "of the Seas".
The 4200-passenger ship Quantum OTS is a next-generation Quantum Class ship. The new class of ships was known in the past under the name "Project Sunshine". The Quantum-Class is larger than the earlier Freedom by 13,000 GT. With these new dimensions, the class became the second largest in the fleet of the cruise company after the Oasis class.
Decks and Cabins
Quantum Of The Seas staterooms (2094 total, in 33 grades) include 125 Suites, 1446 Balcony, 148 Oceanview, 375 Inside (including Virtual Balcony) and also 28 Studios (Balcony and Interior). Most cabins are sized 180-200 ft2 / 17-19 m2. Most cabin balconies are sized 55 ft2 / 5 m2. The largest is the Royal Loft Suite (1660 ft2 / 152 m2 plus 620 ft2 / 58 m2 wraparound terrace). Wheelchair-accessible cabins are 22.
The boat has 16 decks, of which 15 passenger-accessible and 9 with cabins.
The new “Royal Suite Class” booking category (suite accommodations only) provides the ship’s highest paying passengers with the ultimate all-inclusive cruise experience of Royal Caribbean, marked by Coastal Kitchen exclusive access, 24-hour personal butler service, included gratuities, all-inclusive drinks, free Internet and thermal suite unlimited access.
Quantum OTS also has RCI's Virtual Balcony Interior cabins (with floor-ceiling 4K UHD screens that receive real-time video streaming from the ship's outside cameras). Compared to the Oasis-class, Quantum-class liners have larger staterooms, more connected cabins (for families with kids) and Studios (designed for solo travelers).

Quantum of the Seas itinerary program is based on 4- and 5-day short Asia roundtrip cruises from Shanghai and Hong Kong. During her Inaugural season, Quantum operated on Caribbean voyages out of Bayonne (Cape Liberty) New Jersey.
During winter 2019-2020 (November through April) the Quantum ship was homeported in Singapore for a total of 34 itineraries to Penang Malaysia, Phuket Thailand and Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon Vietnam. This deployment increased the Royal Caribbean's passenger capacity in Singapore by 30%.
Starting on December 1, 2020, the homeported in Singapore Quantum OTS became RCI's ever-first ship in operation since the fleet pause on March 14. The season (later extended through February 2022/14 months) had scheduled only Cruises to Nowhere (2-3-4-night "Ocean Getaways"/roundtrips) available for Singapore residents only and with no call ports along the route. The liner's max passenger capacity (4819) was limited to just 1000.
During summer 2021 (May through September), RCI planned to deploy Quantum OTS in Alaska - joining there the fleetmate Ovation OTS. Both liners were scheduled to operate 7-night roundtrips from homeport Seattle WA (leaving on Mondays). RCI's Alaskan season 2021 also had itineraries planned for Radiance OTS and Serenade OTS - both homeported in Vancouver BC and Seward AK (7-night one-ways). However, in late-January, RCI canceled Quantum's Alaskan 2021 season (April 25 through October 14) and the ship remained in Southeast Asia. Ovation-Serenade-Radiance ships' Alaskan schedules remained unchanged.
Following Ovation OTS, Quantum OTS became the second RCI boat deployed in Australia for season 2022-2023. Quantum's inaugural Australian season (Nov 1, 2022, thru April 12, 2023) was based on homeporting in Brisbane QLD, and 6- to 10-day roundtrips visiting NSW (Sydney), Tasmania (Hobart), Queensland (Airlie Beach, Yorkeys Knob, Willis Island), South Pacific island ports in New Caledonia and Vanuatu, as well as 2-night/3-day Samplers (cruises to nowhere).

Quantum Of The Seas Wiki
On February 11, 2011, under “Project Sunshine”, the shipowner RCCL announced the order of a new vessel. It represents a new passenger ship class of all three units, the first of which (Quantum) was delivered in 2014. On February 29, 2012, RCCL announced the order of the second “Sunshine” ship – Anthem (launched in 2015).
On January 31, 2013, the new vessel class was officially named “Quantum Class”. On this day were also officially announced the names of the first two vessels – Quantum and the Anthem OTS. The third vessel of this class (Ovation) was scheduled for launch in April 2016.
Quantum OTS is Royal Caribbean's first Quantum-class vessel, with "WOW" sisterships Anthem of the Seas (2015) and Ovation of the Seas (2016). There is a possibility the RCCL cruise company to order a fourth Quantum-class ship, as such an option was included in the contract.
Ship's godmother is Kristin Dawn Chenoweth (1968-bornUS actress and singer). It was delivered to RCI on October 28, 2014. Quantum OTS was initially homeported at Bayonne's Port Cape Liberty (New Jersey). The Inaugural Cruise (maiden voyage) was on November 2, 2014. The itinerary was a Transatlantic crossing from the UK to USA (Southampton to NYC / Bayonne NJ). In 2016, Quantum was homeported in Shanghai China for roundtrips to ports in Japan and South Korea,
