The Top Things to Do Onboard Quantum of the Seas

Adventure is always a given when you sail on this award-winning vessel, considered by many as the best cruise ship around! Here are ten unforgettable experiences to look forward to onboard.

Latest Update -  April 30, 2024


The original Quantum Class cruise ship, Quantum of the Seas®, set the standard for innovative onboard experiences and activities infused with state-of-the-art technology. From robotic bartenders and augmented-reality quests to a skydiving simulator, and a cutting-edge viewing capsule. This groundbreaking cruise ship offers endless opportunities to fill all your sea days with family-friendly indoor adventures, wow-worthy top-deck attractions, world-class, imaginative cuisine, and some of the most awe-inspiring entertainment at sea. This list spotlights ten of the top things to do when you book a cruise onboard Quantum of the Seas — though, be ready, as there are plenty more incredible feats to discover while sailing on this iconic luxury cruise ship.

1. Turn Up Your Tide-taming Game As You Surf On The Flowrider®

Did somebody say “cowabunga?” FlowRider® is a Royal Caribbean mainstay and a reason guests say Quantum of the Seas is one of the best cruise ships they’ve ever sailed on. This 12.192 metres-long surf simulator circulates more than 30,000 gallons of rushing water to mimic the rolling waves of the ocean. Grab a board and try to shred standing upright like a pro, or hit the waves horizontally and go bold boogie-style. If you’re looking to level up your surf skills, you can opt for a private lesson while on your travel vacation with one of the cruise ship’s trained instructors. Or watch — and get splashed — from the sidelines as adventurous tide-tamers try not to wipe out.

2. Buckle Up And Take A Bumper Car Beyond Far

Did you ever think you’d book a cruise only to find…bumper cars onboard? Nobody does this classic activity like Royal Caribbean®. Head to SeaPlex®, the largest indoor cruise activity space at sea, for a rush-hour adventure where the only traffic law is to have a great time. New to the driver’s seat? It’s simple. Just settle into your car, buckle up, and bounce, bang, bump, and zip to your heart’s content. You don’t need a driver’s license to hit this track — you just need to meet the 42-inch height requirement.

3. Level-up Your Onboard Cruise Experiences At Seaplex

The biggest indoor activity space at sea is also home to some of the biggest thrills onboard. In addition to its epic bumper car track, the SeaPlex® on Quantum of the Seas offers plenty of other ways to fill every moment with fast-paced, action-packed fun. Team up with new friends and dribble it out on the full-size basketball court. Take a high-flying trapeze lesson at circus school. Grab a controller and reach a new top score in the space’s video game zone. Or wild out on wheels at the roller skating rink. All while jamming to tunes from a floating DJ booth that hovers over all the action below.

4. Jump Into Indoor Skydiving On Ripcord® By Ifly®

There’s nothing like the thrill of free falling as you skydive — however this time you don’t have to jump out of a plane or helicopter to experience it firsthand. Quantum of the Seas is home to RipCord® by iFLY®, the only indoor skydiving simulator at sea and one of the most epic attractions onboard this groundbreaking ship. Change into a special skydiving suit and step into a translucent capsule. Then get ready to soar as a strong blast of air lifts you up, up, and away from the ground, simulating the feeling of weightlessness. The whole family can get in on the zero-gravity thrills, too — this activity is open to guests aged three and older.

5. Enjoy A Taste Of Tuscany At Jamie’s Italian By Jamie Oliver

Star chef Jamie Oliver serves up Tuscan-inspired flavours at Jamie’s Italian — the perfect onboard dining eatery for a tasty lunch, intimate family dinner, or romantic date night. The shareable dishes here spotlight seasonal ingredients and authentic recipes, from homemade pasta and classic Old-World entrees to contemporary creations. Guests love the creamy burrata served with slow-roasted tomato, tender arugula and traditional carta di musica bread. The truffle tagliatelle and Chianti-braised short rib are also top hits. And if you like seafood, try Jamie’s famous prawn linguine, tossed with garlicky prawns, shaved fennel, saffron, and vine-ripe tomatoes. Buon appetito!

6. Get Starstruck At Starwater For The Best Entertainment

The award-winning entertainment team at Royal Caribbean knows how to deliver show-stopping spectaculars that push the boundaries of music, art and innovation. Their original production Starwater, performed onboard Quantum of the Seas, will keep you spellbound from start to finish. This visual feast fuses live performance artistry and groundbreaking technology to explore the depths of human emotion — and you’ve got a prime seat to enjoy every moment. Admission to Starwater is included in your cruise fare — just reserve your spot through the Cruise Planner app or onboard at the box office for the best onboard entertainment.

7. Groove To The Most Melodic Cover Bands At Music Hall

This huge, multi-level concert venue onboard Quantum of the Seas hosts leading cover bands from around the world. The music varies from night-to-night. Sometimes it’s pulsing disco, sometimes it’s classic rock, and other times it’s big band and swing. One thing's constant, though — the atmosphere is always electric. Jam out and bust a move or kick back and settle in for the performance — the space offers plenty of comfy lounge seating to rest your feet after a whirl on the dance floor. Your favourite drinks are always close at hand, too, thanks to a talented team of bartenders skilled in shaking, stirring, and muddling up crave-worthy creations.

8. View Reality Through A Multi-sensory Marvel In Ar

Building on the Quantum Class’s reputation as the best cruise ships for high-tech wonders, Two70® is an engineering marvel that’s sure to wow any guest. By day, this sprawling space is where you’ll find Expedition Two70®, a series of fully immersive augmented reality games and challenges for players of all ages. Come back after sundown and you’ll find the venue totally transformed into a theater and lounge showcasing some of the most awe-inspiring entertainment at sea. Like Sonic Odyssey, an original production that blends live performance with cutting-edge technology to create an immersive arena of sound. All the shows here are included in your cruise fare, but it’s always recommended to make a reservation via the Cruise Planner app or onboard at the box office.

9. Venture Down A Culinary Rabbit Hole At Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine

Entertainment and onboard attractions aren’t the only innovative feats you’ll find onboard Quantum of the Seas. The ship is also home to one of the most forward-thinking dining experiences at sea — Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine. This brand favourite is all about pushing the culinary envelope with unexpected flavour pairings and out-of-the-box presentation. Like pepper spheres served with bread foam, crispy crab cones topped with frothy avocado mousse, and smoky-spicy Buffalo chicken eggs. Even the cocktails — called “elixirs,” here — are crafted to delight all your senses.

Book a cruise onboard fan-favourite Quantum of the Seas for an amazing experience brimming with onboard activities and next-level experiences for everyone in the family. Whether you’re a foodie, a theater lover or a thrill-seeker chasing your next adrenaline rush, you’ll never be bored when you sail on this award-winning luxury cruise ship.
