Quantum of the Seas was launched on Nov. 23, 2014. After the initial winter season sailing to ports in the Caribbean, the ship's itinerary was changed to run from New York Harbor to destinations all over the world, including China, Spain, Malaysia and Singapore.
Quantum of the Seas is one of three Quantum class ships built for the Royal Caribbean cruise fleet. Quantum class ships feature 16 guest decks, accommodations for over 4,000 passengers and host more than 10 different restaurants. On-board activities include bumper cars, trapeze lessons and a skydiving simulator. In 2015 Quantum of the Seas was chosen by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects to be the recipient of its Maritime Safety Award, the first cruise ship to ever earn this distinction.
