Default Poll: Quantum of the Seas

We're seriously excited about Tuesday's reveal of Quantum of the Seas (and are told that it's a really big reveal, with at least two or three never-ever-been-seen-in-cruising features). We'll be there to cover the unveiling (and, thanks to Royal Caribbean, we'll be live streaming from the event on Cruise Critic -- more details to come).

In the meantime, we've created a poll, with Royal Caribbean's help, that asks: Which one feature on this list do you predict will be found onboard Quantum of the Seas? We actually don't know the correct answer at this point; only Royal Caribbean does. And remember: Out of the nine choices, just one is real.

The answer will come at 10 a.m. on Tuesday....

Is there something really cool you'd like to see on Quantum of the Seas that's not on the list? After you vote, tell us about it here.

It has to be The Revolving Restaurant, the whole Viking Crown will spin Yippeeee

Trouble is others will call it The Revolting Restaurant, just to be nasty.

Default First at-sea vineyard

I'd love to see a small vineyard (part of Central Park) at sea, would be fun to do a "stomp the grapes" theme cruise on Quantum

I agree. But lets hope they build it right. They can't seem to keep the revolving bars working on Radiance Class.

Wasn't the rumor that there would be a roller coaster on Oasis? Maybe that is the one.

So Royal Caribbean has given Cruise Critic a clue? It seems obvious from the options given. Good thing there is more than 1 big exciting thing to reveal on Tuesday.

They actually tried to have a hot air balloon with the Oasis, so that's my guess

So many revolving restaurant picks - is it people on here know it's going to be a revolving rooftop restaurant or is that just the pick they hoping for? Because that would seem like an expensive addition to a cruise ship and one which would most likely be prone to breaking down like the bar on Radiance.

I wouldn't be surprised to see either the ferris-wheel or hot air balloon. Maybe the engineers figured out balloon concept since their trials on Oasis?

For me, neither. I just picked it because it seems most likely of the options.

I would like the Go Kart track but I expect it will be the revolving restaurant.

Same here, seems like the most likely out of the options, kinda goes along with the Rising Tide Bar theme. Although the ferris wheel does go along with the carousel on Oasis class.

I'm thinking it my be the water skiing platform. Think it may look like a Flowrider, but the rider has a bungee or rope to hold onto as they ski.
