7. Quantum of the Seas
The Quantum group of Royal Caribbean is made up of three equally sized ships including: Quantum of the Seas, Anthem of the Seas and Ovation of the Sea. Although a bit smaller than the Oasis group, Quantum offers similar experiences.
“All have great outdoor spaces, promenades and the activities of a cruise ship. The Quantum trains bring cars full of tourists and circus schools,” McDaniel explained.
On this ship, you can experience a variety of culinary options from 18 restaurants, an actual indoor skydiving simulator or “North Star” and a jewel-shaped glass block taller than 91m , giving visitors a 360-degree view.
Bionic Bar, where there is a catering robot that will prepare you cocktails, is also worth a mention.
Designed specifically for the Asian market, Quantum of the Seas usually runs outside China. Some onboard services are tailored to meet local tastes and consumption habits such as bigger casinos, more Asian food options.
8. Anthem of the Seas
This is the only Quantum cruise ship that normally travels across the Atlantic. The ship made its first voyage, an 8-night cruise to France and Spain from Southampton, in April 2015.
It became the largest cruise ship to ever visit a Canadian port when it arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 2016.
9. Ovation of the Seas
Launched in 2016, the cruise’s voyage alternates between the two ends of the Pacific Ocean, spends the Northern Hemisphere summer in Seattle and travels to Alaska and the rest of the year in Sydney, Australia.
Like its sister ships, Ovation of the Seas owns the most advanced Royal Caribbean ballrooms, including the first Virtual Balcony screening room and a restaurant branch of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.
10. Norwegian Joy
This 333-meter-long ship was made specifically for Chinese and Chinese tourists, with artist Tan Ping’s design showing on the hull. Traveling between China and Australia, the Norwegian Joy operated since 2017 and can accommodate up to 3,883 guests.
