I'm at work and just got out of a meeting and, unfortunately, didn't get to see any of the news release. I tried skimming through a few of the other threads, but there is so much feedback that it's hard to get a real handle on the announcement without taking the time to truly skim through all the pages.
For those of us who are stuck at work and don't have time to skim through dozens of pages to get to the dirt. Can someone summarize what we will see on the Quantum? ANY and ALL information you have is great (not just the wow factors, but any details is appreciated). Did they announce any restaurants? Did they announce the Broadway Show? Again, ANY details would be FABULOUS.

I'm most excited to get the kids on the bumper cars at sea, and I can't wait to finally try one of those sky diving simulators! The inside cabin simulated windows are neat but I couldn't imagine sailing without a balcony.
( I have a photographic memory...I just never figured out how to develop the film.) O o . l8v0
Well, I like Royal Caribbean, but some of these "innovations" don't sound that great to me.
North Star: First of all I can get a 360 degree view of the ocean from over 200 feet up just by walking around the top deck. Raising the height a bit isn't going to change the view much. Second, I hope they take reservations, because I would hate to be the 27th person in line and half to wait a half hour for my turn.
RipCord: This one sounds interesting and I put it on par with the Flowrider.
SeaPlex: Circus school sounds interesting, bumper cars does not.
virtual balcony: Sounds like a good addition to the inside cabins. Kind of expands the promenade view cabin idea.
