Quantum of the Seas to debut next year

Royal Caribbean’s new ‘Project Sunshine’ ships will be named Quantum of the Seas, set to debut in autumn 2014, and Anthem of the Seas, which will follow in spring 2015.

The two ships will be part of the Quantum class of ships. This week saw the first piece of steel being cut for the two ships at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, where the two ships will be built.

“We are extremely excited to celebrate this important milestone for our first Project Sunshine ship. After three years of design and advance planning this is the first step of the construction of the ship and I look forward to seeing it all come together in the coming months,” said Adam Goldstein, president and chief executive, Royal Caribbean International. “The new ship will be such a leap forward in terms of vessel design and guest experiences that we thought the name Quantum of the Seas was perfectly appropriate.”

The line has promised that the new ships will feature a series of new features and attractions, after it has successfully pioneered the likes of ice-skating rinks and surf simulators onboard.

“Throughout our history we have made huge strides in cruise ship design and innovation and the Quantum class will be no exception,” said Richard D. Fain, chairman and chief exectuive, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd. “We look forward to introducing consumers to Quantum cruising.”
