One of the most adventurous things to do on Royal Caribbean's Quantum of the Seas is experience skydiving with RipCord by iFLY. The first skydiving experience at sea allows everyone from first-time flyers to seasoned skydivers to enjoy the sheer thrill and exhilaration of skydiving in a safe, controlled, simulated environment. It's a great way to get active on the ship, take in the ocean views from the air and after trying it once you won't want to stop. The flying takes place inside a 23ft tall glass flight chamber surrounded by a viewing platform for friends, family and other spectators to watch and take part in the fun.
Ever had a robot shake your martini? At the Bionic Bar, robots take centre stage mixing cocktails ordered by you via tablets. The most advanced bar we have ever visited really needs to be seen to be believed. Watch as the single armed robotic bartenders put the ice, mint and lemon into a mixer before shaking to make your drink. The surprising sight and unique Bionic Bar is the first of its kind, not just at sea but anywhere in the world. It's a must-try for an interactive drinking experience.
It may look like a regular room with comfy seating and amazing 270-degree sea views, but entertainment venue, bar and lounge Two70 is so much more. Named after its panoramic ocean views, this revolutionary space features floor-to-ceiling glass walls that span almost three decks high and never-before-seen technology. Every seat promises to be the best in the house, with terraces at varying elevations and spacious lounge seating staggered throughout the room. By day, you can sit back and relax, take in the breathtaking views or socialise over a casual meal at The Café @ Two70. The second level has a library and activity workshop, where guest lectures, demonstrations, art activities and crafting classes take place. At night, Two70 unveils its spectacular, mysterious and unexpected entertainment. Performances take place all around - not just on the stage - and the glass walls become part of the entertainment, displaying projections of dazzling digital scenery. The most incredible feature is the set of six robot arms housed in the ceiling that control LED TV screens which extend down into the room to display spectacular video and imagery that can virtually jump from screen to screen. Look out for the swinging seat that anyone can sit in too!
Go on an exhilarating journey inside jewel-shaped glass capsule North Star, which gently rises more than 300ft above sea level, rotating upwards and over the sides of the ship to provide the most breathtaking 360-degree views for an intimate and exclusive experience. Located on the top deck towards the bow of the ship, North Star is a 15-minute journey, offering the most spectacular and sought-after views at sunrise and sunset. No two experiences in the glass viewing pod are the same and you will walk away with an awe-inspiring connection with the sea.
Quantum of the Seas was made to entertain you and that it does with its advanced line-up of shows, productions and events to leave you seriously wowed. Think one-of-a-kind productions involving Roboscreens that you can't even watch on land and spellbinding shows that you have to see to believe. Futuristic stage Two70 is where Starwater, an innovative musical unique to Royal Caribbean takes place. The highly visual, theatrical spectacle of video mapping, special effects and human artistry create an awe-inspiring experience - it's an absolute must-see. Theatre fans will be truly in their element on the ship as award-wining West End musical Mamma Mia! is also brought to the seas for the first time in the Royal Theater.
Whether it's rainy or bright outside, the sunny Solarium with its super serene atmosphere, is the place to visit if you fancy relaxing in a whirlpool, taking in the sea views from a comfortable day bed for two or sipping a healthy smoothie at the Solarium Bar. It's the perfect spot to while away an afternoon while sitting in the sunlight among palm trees. The adults-only pool area offers light bites and as it is located at the front of the ship, you can enjoy some of the best views of the sky and sea.
- Royal Caribbean has gone all out with its art offering and one of its best pieces include the gigantic magenta polar bear sculpture, 'From Afar,' located on the exterior deck of the ship and made up of 1,340 stainless steel triangles. Quantum's impressive 2,980-piece art collection can be viewed throughout the ship, with some hard-to-miss works, such as 'Crossing,' a wall of 210 butterflies representing 30 species, and sprawling, undulating structure 'Waves of Light' which explores the light’s potential as a structural element. Enjoy the amusing animal art in the elevators, the interactive art created by the world's best digital and video artists, as well as the awe-inspiring SMART art.
For thrilling indoor activities, head for SeaPlex where cruisers of all ages can enjoy the first-ever bumper cars at sea, a circus school with a flying trapeze and roller skating. This ultra-fun space was made for action and excitement, and allows you to hang out with friends in the live gaming suite playing Xbox games, play table tennis, air hockey and foosball. A floating DJ booth hovers above the activity providing music and a mix of lights, and when you fancy a bite, the first-ever food truck at sea, the SeaPlex Dog House, is located in the corner of SeaPlex, giving you a place to refuel.
Always losing your room key? No worries if you're cruising with Quantum as you will be given a wristband to wear during your holiday to serve as your room key (genius, right?). The RFID WOWbands require only a simple tap to quickly navigate the ship, make on-board purchases and more. Wear your band in the pool, while roller skating and booking a table at a restaurant. It won't demagnetize like a normal room key and comes in different colours, depending on the muster station you are assigned to.
With no set dinner times, no required formal nights and 18 eateries to choose from, dining at sea has never been so good. Quantum of the Seas has five complimentary restaurants and five Dynamic Dining restaurants exclusive to Royal Caribbean, including Coastal Kitchen, American Icon Grill and Chic. The first Jamie's Italian at sea is open for those who love the celeb chef's rustic Italian dishes and creative restaurants such as Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine and Devinly Decadence will keep even the biggest gourmands on their toes. Our favourite dining spot is Izumi Japanese Cuisine for its delectable sushi, as well as the signature soups and noodle dishes. Diners have full control over dining preferences with the smart reservations system allowing you to decide when and where you eat.
