Quantum of the Seas is a Quantum-class cruise ship currently operated by Royal Caribbean International and is the lead ship of her class. At her time of delivery in 2014, Quantum of the Seas was the third largest cruise ship in the world by gross tonnage. She is currently deployed to serve the Asian market.

The first of its class, Quantum of the Seas is a groundbreaking ship filled with revolutionary feats from bow to stern. Think show-stopping entertainment that blends art and music with cutting-edge technology. Thrilling activities the whole family can enjoy in any weather. And unparalleled views from every room — even Interior staterooms let you scope out the sights in real-time from a Virtual Balcony.

In the summer of 2021, it sails for the first time ever from Seattle to Alaska’s wildest destinations, including the forested fjords of Icy Strait Point, charming and secluded Ketchikan, and glacier-studded Endicott Arm.

Each of the Quantum Of The Seas cruise ship deck plans is conveniently combined with a legend (showing cabin codes) and a detailed review of all the deck’s venues and passenger-accessible indoor and outdoor areas. A separate link provides a piece of extensive information on Quantum Of The Seas staterooms (cabins and suites), including photos, cabin plans, and amenities by room type and category.

Quantum OTS deck plan changes 2019 refurbishment review

The ship’s first drydock refurbishment was in 2019 (October 19 – November 16) done in Singapore (at Sembcorp Marine Shipyard). The USD 65 million drydocking projects included general maintenance works, technical overhauls, refreshed interiors, and new attractions. Deckplan changes include adding two new team gaming experiences – a Laser Tag and an Escape Room.

In comparison to the fleetmates, Quantum ships don’t have the following signature RCI facilities: Ice Rink, Bowling, Zip-Line, Water Slides, Rope Course, Golf Simulator, Boxing Ring, Smoking Lounge, Royal Viking Crown (Observation Lounge). The traditional Royal Promenade is replaced by a 2-decks high walkway (location decks 4-5, connected with staircases). The new walkway passes through the centre (roughly half of the vessel’s length). New dining venues replace RCI’s traditional Main Dining Room concept and serve the new “Dynamic Dining” concept.

Several dining venues replace the traditional Main Dining Rooms with the Royal Caribbean’s new “Rotational Dining” system. This was implemented to replace the previous “Dynamic Dining” concept. The new Rotational Dining system allows guests to dine at different restaurants (complimentary venues only) each night on the ship (based on a rotational dining schedule). Just like on Disney ships, Anthem cruise ship passengers are served by the same wait staff and enjoy the same table companions each evening.

In March 2018, due to a contract conclusion (between RCI and celebrity chef Michael Schwartz), the Quantum ship’s “Michael’s Genuine Pub” (midship on Lobby Deck 4) was renamed “Harp and Horn Pub”.

All Quantum-class “WOW ships” feature numerous unique facilities and onboard activities (never available at sea before), including:

  • “RipCord” (deck 16) – the world’s first skydiving simulator at sea
  • “North Star” (deck 15) – the world’s first rotating capsule (300 ft above the sea level) for 360° ocean views
  • “Seaplex” (deck 15 & 16) – the world’s first bumper cars at sea
  • “Two70°” (3-decks high – decks 5-6-7) – with huge LED screens on which (via a mapping system) live views from the ship’s outside can be projected
  • the world’s first “Virtual Balcony” staterooms (373 of them, an Inside cabin category). They are located on decks 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11, among them, 34 are wheelchair accessible, and some are connecting). Passengers have the option to switch the virtual balcony room’s view on and off. These large screens cannot be used as a TV or for displaying commercials, business logos, etc.
  • RFID cabin door locks and RFID wristbands (an optional choice to replace the traditional SeaPass cards) allow passengers to purchase items on the ship and access their cabins. The new wristbands are placed in envelopes in the passenger rooms.
  • the new Interior cabin type is called “Virtual Balcony” (decks 7 through 11)
  • new Studio cabins with balconies (with single occupancy rates for solo travelers)
  • over USD 5 million invested in the ship’s art collection.
