A First Look at the First ‘Smartship’: 210 Original Photos of the Quantum of the Seas

Standard

What’s longer than five 747s and yet can turn on a dime in NYC’s Hudson River?

The Quantum of the Seas, Royal Caribbean‘s
newest cruise ship and the first to be branded a “smartship,” is
officially out on the ocean. Godmother Kristin Chenoweth christened her
at Cape Liberty, New Jersey on November 14 and, with that crash of a
massive bottle of Perrier-Jouët champagne, she begins a year of sailings
out of New York Harbor to the Bahamas and Caribbean.

We spent the weekend onboard the Quantum, pushing buttons and
opening doors to discover her secrets and put the much boasted about
technology to the test. But first, let’s take a long look at the
ship—all 168,000 tonnes of fun—with completely original photos:
