Yesterday was such an exciting day. I was finally able to share some of the amazing work that’s been taking place for my godchild, Quantum of the Seas. It was even more exciting that we shared the details of Quantum of the Seas entertainment via a Google Hangout, a first for me. Nick Weir, who is Royal Caribbean International’s VP of Entertainment, was my co-host as we highlighted the first-of-its-kind entertainment that will bring venues like Two70, Music Hall and the Royal Theater to life. To see all the fun we had, check out the Hangout below:
The leap in technology that will be featured on Quantum of the Seas is out of this world. One really cool feature is the video projection screen called Vistarama, which is going to completely transform the great room in the back of the ship which is named Two70°. Vistarama, together with the massive Roboscreens and the live performers, will offer an immersive multi-media experience in Two70° that I challenge you to find elsewhere.
Another exciting thing I want to talk about is the Royal Theater, the largest entertainment venue onboard Quantum of the Seas, which can seat up to 1,300 guests! One show in the Royal Theater that you absolutely must see is Sonic Odyssey, a completely original production inspired by performance artist William Close. This show is larger-than-life and has to be seen to be believed. William and the Royal Caribbean production team have created and introduced a variety of one-of-a-kind majestic instruments that will take guests on a highly visual and experiential journey of music, sound and performance.
And let’s not forget about Music Hall. You may remember me rocking out in this space when we first announced Quantum of the Seas’ features. This venue is brand new to Royal Caribbean and it’s going to offer a wide range of live music opportunities, from house bands to fully produced late-night parties like Wink, a premium adults-only diversion that infuses the best of cabaret-style performance art and club life.
I could go on for hours here, but I think you need to see for yourself all of the great innovations Royal Caribbean is introducing on its’ Quantum-class ships.
