It’s fair to say that Jason Bradbury knows a thing or two about cutting edge technology, which is why one of the presenters of Channel Five’s The Gadget Show was eager to be one of the first people to get a look at Royal Caribbean’s new Quantum Class ships from a technical perspective.
Quantum Class ships are set to feature some world-firsts in cruising innovation, such as Ripcord, an exhilarating indoor skydiving simulator, SeaPLex – a indoor gym which can be converted into roller-skating rink and bumper cars space and the NorthStar observation tower, which is a glass-walled capsule on the end of an 135-foor crane arm, which offers some truly spectacular views.
A self-confessed geek, Jason enjoyed all the new technology, but what got him most excited was Two70, which he enthusiastically described as “a unique entertainments experience” and “a game-changer”. Offering stunning panoramic views by day, the space transforms by night into a state-of-the-art performance venue, thanks to retractable dividers, robotic LCD screens and a projection system, all elements which are each an integral part of each performance which takes place in Two70.
The first ship in the Quantum class, fittingly named Quantum of the Seas, is set to make her debut on November 23 this year and will take cruisers to some of the finest ports to be found throughout the Caribbean, Bermuda and the Bahamas. Royal Caribbean passengers will also enjoy the added bonus of calls at the line’s very own private islands, CocoCay and Labadee, where they’re sure to enjoy some private beach party fun, with plenty of BBQ, beach games, water sports and of course, sun-bathing opportunities.
Quantum’s sister ship, Anthem of the Seas is set for a Spring 2015 debut, with a third, as yet un-named vessel planned to debut in 2016.
