99 days of Quantum: FlowRider champ tests out FlowRider on Quantum of the Seas

We're counting down the days until Quantum of the Seas debuts later this year with our 99 days of Quantum blog series. Each day we will post something about Quantum of the Seas to share with all of you!

FlowRider champ tests out FlowRider on Quantum of the Seas

Everything on Royal Caribbean's Quantum of the Seas needs to be tested and that includes the FlowRider surf simulator.  FlowRider employee and flowboarding legend Sean Silveira, who is a five time world champion, went aboard to put the final touches on the ride and train the sport staff on the wave.

“It was fun training with the sport staff; they are a great group of individuals who were stoked on riding,” Silveira said.

Royal Caribbean has had a long-term relationship with FlowRider, having brought the simulators onboard its cruise ships since the Freedom class of ships. 

“Customer Intimacy is is not just two words – it is a mindset throughout our organization and one concept that we live day in and day out” explained FlowRider COO Marshall Myrman. “We want to create the best experience for not only our customers, but also our clients customers, and everyone else associated with our value chain” added Myrman.

"Having Sean onboard the ship provided a great opportunity for their staff to get excellent hands on training and catch a glimpse of world class riding. It is important for the attraction staff to be knowledgeable and experience the thrill of the wave, so they can better relay the experience to guests."

Quantum of the Seas will feature the FlowRider Double, which is the most popular FlowRider.

99 days of Quantum: Royal Esplanade

We're counting down to the 99 days until Royal Caribbean's newest cruise ship, Quantum of the Seas, launches with a brand new blog post every day. Be sure to check back for something new everyday here.

Royal Esplanade

You've probably heard by now Royal Caribbean has opted to offer a Royal Esplanade instead of a Royal Promenade on Quantum of the Seas, but this new innovation will offer a brand new experience that is not to be missed.

So what is the difference between the Royal Esplanade versus the Royal Promenade.  Personally, I think of the Royal Esplanade as more of a shopping and entertainment district onboard the ship than the cavernous strip that the Royal Promenade is.  

The Royal Esplanade runs the length of deck 4 with a mezzanine level on deck 5 both of which offer shopping, a variety of restaurants, pubs and the brand new Music Hall.

The Royal Esplanade is a combination of shops, luxury boutiques, restaurants and lounges.  The Via is part of the Esplanade and will offer luxury boutiques whereas the main part of the Esplanade will offer other shops, including a new collection of logo items that will be available in 2015 in a new boutique called "The Shop".

Just like the Royal Promenade, there will be entertainment offered throughout each cruise on the Royal Esplanade.  

You will also find Michael's Genuine Pub and Wonderland specialty restaurants as well as Vintages, Chops Grille, Izumi, Cafe Promenade, Sorrentos and more.

You may also notice the incredible art work in the Royal Esplanade, including digital and traditional sculpture and artwork.

From the sounds of it, the Royal Esplanade will be the kind of place you will be spending a lot of time onboard Quantum of the Seas with everything going on.

We're counting down to the 99 days until Royal Caribbean's newest cruise ship, Quantum of the Seas, launches with a brand new blog post every day. Be sure to check back for something new everyday here.

Chef's Table

The Chef's Table has become a coveted experience on Royal Caribbean ships.  It's an intimate dinner with just you and a few other guests who get a five-course meal created by the Chops Grille chef just for you.

Located inside a special part of Chops Grille, the Chef's Table offers just 16 spots for a culinary adventure.

GUEST REVIEW OF CHEF'S TABLE ON OASIS OF THE SEAS

If you like gourmet food and good wine to accompany it, Chef's Table is for you.  The idea behind the Chef's Table is to give guests an unique five-course dinner with wine pairings.

It's meant to be educational as well, as with each course the Chef de Cuisine specially prepares and presents each course, while explaining its cooking techniques, ingredients and flavors.

With each course, a sommelier pairs every course with wine chosen to enhance your enjoyment of the dish. 

Chef's Table is the premier dining experience on Quantum of the Seas and it's also going to be the priciest but if fine dining is what you desire, this is the place for you.

Chef's Table is a specialty restaurant and has a cover charge to dine there. There is a formal dress code and it will be open for dinner.

Quantum of the Seas will feature a brand new area called, The Via, which is an "enclave of elegant dining and boutiques for leisurely moments spent in good company".

In the Via, you can enjoy a fine wine, do some shopping for fine jewelry, watches, fragrances and more. 

The Via will be home to Vintages wine bar and Jamie's Italian restaurant.  

Right around the corner you will find boutique shopping at Hublot and BVLGARI shops.  The Via is the place for high-end indulgences.

The Via is a brand new area that we've not seen on any other Royal Caribbean ships before.  It's part of the Royal Esplanade and looks to be a neighborhood within a neighborhood.
