Looking to plan the perfect cruise getaway onboard Quantum of the Seas® while enjoying all of the free included activities and food delights? These are the top list of free things to do onboard this award-winning cruise ship.

Royal Caribbean is known for delivering incredible vacations for guests of all ages onboard each of their award-winning cruise ships. And while every class in the fleet offers its own unique vibe and experiences — with plenty of Royal Caribbean classics woven in, of course — Quantum of the Seas has been wowing cruise guests since its debut with its next-level blend of futuristic feats, thrilling onboard attractions, dazzling entertainment and world-class restaurants and bars.

One of the best things about choosing this ground-breaking ship for your next getaway is that so many of the best things to do onboard are included in your cruise fare. From tide-taming sessions on the FlowRider® surf simulator, to hours of play at SeaPlex®, the largest indoor activity space at sea, this cruise ship checks all the boxes for an epic escape that won’t stretch your budget. 

In between adrenaline-amping attractions, you’ll find a wide range of free places to eat onboard — like Windjammer, Dog House, Café Promenade and the Main Dining Room — each serving up tantalizing flavors from every corner of the globe. And once the sun goes down, it’s all about the nightlife and entertainment onboard. You’ll have your pick of show-stopping original productions that rival performances on Broadway, as well as a multi-level concert venue called Music Hall that hosts some of the best cover bands in the industry — all included in your cruise fare. Keep reading to learn more about the top free things to do onboard Quantum of the Seas.

Catch Waves On The Flowrider Surf Simulator

If you’ve cruised with Royal Caribbean before, you’ve likely seen or heard of the FlowRider. This top-rated attraction is a staple on many of the cruise line’s top ships, including Quantum of the Seas. It funnels 30,000 gallons of rushing water continuously, so you can catch the perfect swell all day, every day. It’s also included in your cruise fare and open to guests who meet the minimum height requirement. You’ll have three options for enjoying this epic, complimentary onboard activity — ride your board upright like a pro and try not to wipeout, go boogie-style on your belly or grab a spot in the stadium seating and cheer on your friends and family. Reservations for the FlowRider aren’t required — drop by any time and hang ten. 

Conquer The Royal Escape Room℠

If you’re looking for an intense mental workout — and a great way to bond with friends and family onboard — check out the cruise ship’s Royal Escape Room. Most Royal Caribbean cruise ships have one of these, and onboard Quantum of the Seas it’s all about unraveling the mysteries of the elusive and secretive Royal Society of Puzzles. You and your teammates will have less than an hour to puzzle your way through a series of increasingly difficult challenges, critical-thinking tests and mind-bending riddles in the ultimate game of quick wits and teamwork. If this sounds like your kind of experience, you’ll be pleased to know admission is free for cruise guests. Come play as often as you like!

Scale The Rock Climbing Wall

Here’s another classic cruise activity that guests come back to again and again when vacationing with Royal Caribbean — the cruise line’s iconic Rock Climbing Wall. This free onboard favorite is one of the best opportunities to score awe-inspiring views while sailing from one stunning destination to another. Guests as young as six years old can harness up for this vertical adventure and put their climbing skills to the test. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned speed climber, see how far you can make it up this towering, 40-foot wall of fun.

Fuel Up On Crave-Worthy, Complimentary Fare

In between fun, free adventures onboard, you can refuel at several delicious dining options that are included in your cruise fare. One of the top free spots onboard is Windjammer, a casual, laid-back restaurant that serves up global cuisine during breakfast, lunch and dinner. You’ll find dishes to please even the pickiest palates here, from fluffy omelets made your way to crisp salads, fresh-pressed paninis, burgers and more. Not to mention global culinary stations that change daily. Meanwhile, Cafe Promenade is your go-to for fast-casual bites around the clock. The antipasti, sandwiches and pastries here are out of this world — and serve as the perfect pick-me-ups in between onboard activities. Then there’s Dog House, known for its variety of artisanal hot dogs, and the iconic Sorrento’s Pizza — serving up perfection by the slice all day and late into the night. Of course, no cruise is complete without at least one dinner in the Main Dining Room, where every meal is a multi-course tour that takes guests from Jamaica to Jaipur. All of these dining options are included in your cruise fare, which means you can satisfy your cravings without spending a single dollar extra during your vacation.

Say “Goodbye” To Gravity

One of the most thrilling complimentary activities onboard Quantum of the Seas is RipCord® by iFLY®, an incredible skydiving simulator that lets guests hover weightless in midair, recreating the incredible sensation of free-falling right on the cruise ship’s top deck. Guests as young as three years old can suit up and soar in this adrenaline-amping onboard experience — and it’s completely free on sailings departing from the U.K., China, Singapore, the Caribbean and Alaska. Go ahead and ride again and again.

Fill Every Evening Onboard With Dazzling Entertainment

For years, Royal Caribbean has earned top marks for its onboard entertainment. If you’re sailing onboard Quantum of the Seas, you’ll have plenty of top-notch performances to choose from every evening — all included in your cruise fare. There’s Starwater, a multi-sensory spectacular that blends live performance and cutting-edge technology to explore the depths of human emotion. There’s also Sonic Odyssey, a spellbinding performance designed to immerse the viewer in a symphony of sound, light and choreography. Fans of traditional Broadway- and cabaret-style performances will love Sequins & Feathers, an original production that takes viewers on a journey from the glitzy theaters of Las Vegas to the classic sets of Paris. And of course, Music Hall beckons every night with an ever-changing lineup of world-class cover bands, playing hits from classic rock to disco to big band and beyond. 

Ready to start planning a memory-maxing escape that goes bold without breaking the bank?
