Quantum of the Seas

German shipbuilder MEYER WERFT has delivered the new cruise ship Quantum of the Seas to US cruise operator Royal Caribbean International.

The 167,800gt vessel is the first Quantum-class cruise ship of Royal Caribbean.

Quantum of the Seas was constructed in Meyer Werft’s Papenburg shipyard and the steel cutting was held in February 2013.

Equipped with diesel-electric engines powered by two Azipod XO thrusters, the vessel will be able to cruise at a speed of 22k.

"The vessel will offer RipCord by iFLY, the first skydiving experience at sea [and] the North Star, which carry guests more than 300ft above the ocean." 

Quantum of the Seas features high energy-efficient systems, optimised hydrodynamics, heat recovery, an effective underwater paint coating, exhaust gas treatment plant and energy-saving LED lighting systems.

The 348m-long and 136m-wide vessel will be able to house 4,180 guests in its 2,090 cabins.

The vessel will offer RipCord by iFLY, the first skydiving experience at sea, the North Star, which carry guests more than 300ft above the ocean, SeaPlex, the largest indoor sports and entertainment complex at sea and a Bionic Bar powered by Makr Shakr.

On 23 November this year, the ship will start its maiden voyage from New York (Cape Liberty) to the Bahamas.

The sister vessel of the cruise ship, Anthem of the Seas, is being built at the facility of Meyer Werft and is expected to be delivered in early 2015.
