Royal Caribbean is counting down the days until its brand new Quantum of the Seas debuts and as of today, there are 99 days until that happens, so for the next 99 days we will be posting something every day about this amazing new ship.

Dreamworks Experience

Ever since Royal Caribbean partnered with DreamWorks to bring their characters onboard Royal Caribbean's cruise ships, it's been a big hit.  Not surprisingly, the DreamWorks Experience will be coming to Quantum of the Seas too.

Onboard Quantum of the Seas you will be able to meet DreamWorks characters such as Shrek, Fiona and the Penguins from Madagascar.  

In addition to character meets, you will find the DreamWorks characters in shows, 3D movies, parades, character meals and more.

Kids also get the chance to play with their favorite DreamWorks Animation characters at Adventure Ocean.

Of course, you will be abloe to watch DreamWorks films in your stateroom.

There's less than 99 days until Royal Caribbean's Quantum of the Seas debuts so we're counting down each day with a brand new blog post all about Quantum of the Seas. Read our blog each day for a new post all about this amazing cruise ship.

Solarium

One of the best things Royal Caribbean offers is the adults-only pool area known as the Solarium.  It's more than just an escape, it's an area for adults to really kick back and relax.

Quantum of the Seas will offer a glass-canopied Solarium pool complete with the Solarium Bistro, which will serve light-fare food.  There's also whirlpools in the Solarium for those looking to really forget their troubles.

The Solarium will be located at the front of Quantum of the Seas and will offer a fantastic view of the sky and sea.

In terms of the pool, you will find all of the Solarium features  guests love and, new to Quantum of the Seas, a series of cascading lagoons in the center of the Solarium, where guests can swim as well as in the main pool. 

For adults looking to relax, the Solarium on Quantum of the Seas will be the perfect refuge.

To celebrate the launch of Royal Caribbean's Quantum of the Seas in less than 100 days, we're counting down each day with some really cool about the ship.  Check out our blog each day for a brand new post all about Quantum of the Seas.

FlowRider

A signature Royal Caribbean onboard activity will be making its way to its newest cruise ship, Quantum of the Seas.

Quantum of the Seas will feature the 40-foot-long FlowRider surf simulator on the aft of the cruise ship.  The FlowRider has been part of every new Royal Caribbean ship for quite a while now.

In fact, the FlowRider first debuted on Royal Caribbean back on the Freedom-class of ships and it's been added to the Oasis-class and is even being retro-fitted onto select Voyager-class ships too.

The FlowRider allows guests to try their hand at stand up surfing in a controlled environment.  You can also opt to just do some boogie boarding if standing up just isn't in the cards.

There will also be stadium seating available to enjoy watching others (talented or not) give it their best effort on the FlowRider.

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!

Vistarama

Inside Two70, you'll find of the premiere shows Royal Caribbean is bringing to Quantum of the Seas, Vistarama.

Vistarama takes over Two70 and offers a floor-to-ceiling view of pretty much any scene, real or imagined.  This 12K resolution show (that's 12 times high definition!) is projected against Two70's windows and will amaze with stunning views.

READ YESTERDAY'S POST ABOUT GENEVIEVE GORDER

Using 18 projectors, Vistarama can create an ambient surface that is over 100 feet wide and over 20 feet tall. Vistarama promises to be a show that will overwhelm your senses.

The power of the projections is really at the heart of this show and they will transform Two70 before your eyes.

99 days of Quantum: Genevieve Gorder

Royal Caribbean's Quantum of the Seas debuts in less than 100 days so we're counting down all the great things about Quantum of the Seas. Each day we will post something about Quantum of the Seas to share with you.

Genevieve Gorder

Royal Caribbean went to interior design expert Genevieve Gorder to be the first Quantum Experience Advisor to help establish what the inside of Quantum of the Seas will look like and to make sure it was impressive.

What you see when you walk onboard Quantum of the Seas is important because in order for Quantum of the Seas to give passengers that "WOW" factor, the ship needs to say "WOW".

READ YESTERDAY'S POST ABOUT QUICK BOARDING

Genevieve has worked hand-in-hand with Royal Caribbean's design team, influencing the décor and furnishings aboard the ship with her unique style.

Royal Caribbean has set out to make Quantum of the Seas to be incredibly impressive and Genevieve's attention to detail for the ship's textiles, patterns and colors is among the most important functions of her position.

Genevieve's addition to the design team augments Royal Caribbean's established design structure with an outside voice that can help give a breath of fresh air to the process.

For Genevieve, her approach is to focus on the accessories, textiles and accessories that will help make the look of the ship really "pop".

99 days of Quantum: Quick Boarding

In:
04Sep2014

We're counting down the days until Royal Caribbean's next cruise ship debuts, Quantum of the Seas, with our 99 days of Quantum countdown.  Each day we will post something about this amazing new ship.

Quick boarding

One of the announcements Royal Caribbean made during its technology reveal event was guests would be able to board the ship "from the sidewalk to the ship" in 10 minutes. 

As any veteran cruiser will tell you, the embarkation process usually takes a lot of time.  Usually it can be anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes or more depending on a number of factors.  

READ YESTERDAY'S POST ABOUT DYNAMIC DINING

With Quantum of the Seas, Royal Caribbean promises to make it a whole lot quicker.  Guests can fill out all the important legal information at home and even take their own "selfie" photo to be used with their SeaPass card.

You will still be able to check-in the "old fashioned way" at the cruise terminal too but those that take advantage of the new system will get onboard a whole lot quicker.

I love to get to my Royal Caribbean cruise early and get as much time onboard as I can on embarkation day. After all, the faster you get onboard, the faster your vacation really begins and this is the perfect solution.

99 days of Quantum: Dynamic Dining

In:
03Sep2014

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.

Dynamic Dining

When Royal Caribbean announced Quantum of the Seas would completely change how dinner was served onboard, it caused quite a stir among Royal Caribbean fans.  This innovative new approach to dining is set to revolutionize cruise guests dinner experience.

The basics of Dynamic Dining are simple: no more main dining room, no set times to eat and no formal nights.  Instead, we get five complimentary restaurants along with a slew of specialty restaurants to choose from.

Each night, you pick the restaurant and the time to eat dinner.  Dynamic Dining gives the cruise guest more flexibility, options and choice when it comes to dinner with a lot less formality.

READ YESTERDAY'S POST ABOUT CHIC

Restaurants like American Icon Grill, Chic and Silk offer different choices and you can repeat favorite restaurants or keep trying out new ones. The assortment of specialty restaurants is also impressive with Wonderland, Jamie's Italian, Michael's Genuine Pub and more.  In total, there will be 18 restaurants to choose from!

While formal night was removed, you can still get the formal night experience in one of the restaurnts, The Grande, where it's formal night every night. Once again, Royal Caribbean wants to make guest choice the most important factor here.

There's no question Dynamic Dining is a big step for Royal Caribbean and for long time Royal Caribbean fans, it's something completely different.  The key will be in Dynamic Dining's execution and how well it works for guests. 

To help make picking restaurants easier, Royal Caribbean has developed an app that allows guestss to pick when and where they want to eat and alerting them when the restaurant or reservation time conflicts with something else on their agenda and suggesting alternatives.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post as we celebrate 99 days of Quantum!
