That is truly innovative! I would love the pod that swings over the water! Well, I would love all the new innovations!

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.

 

Eagerly awaiting the details :):):):)

ME!

 

I've never been one for ice skating. Hub and I lasted about 30 seconds at an ice rink before we decided we like our ankles too much to risk it, but roller skating? Finally!

 

That Eye-crane actually looks amazing. And as far as the bumper cars, that's a lot of maintenance that RCI may not want to do. I'll bet it won't make it past the first dry dock.

Now I have to decide between my Oasis TA or maiden voyage of Quantum:confused:

I'm afaid I might forget to get off this ship! Maybe it could just sail around in a circle for a week so everyone could try out all the new stuff.:)

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.

Probably no balcony discount.. but I wonder how many people will "Fall Off" their Virtual Balcony. :eek:

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.

I wonder how long it will take for the virtual cigarette smoke to blow over to my virtual balcony from next door? :eek:

The Quantum certainly looks interesting and I look forward to cruising on it or its sister one day.

 

But since we live in Florida it is unlikely that we would ever go to the trouble to fly to the New York area to board the ship.

 

We are 90 minutes from Port Canaveral and 4 hours from Port Everglades by car.

The virtual balcony concept is fantastic! Perhaps there could be other options than the real time view of the ocean like views of a pacific island, jungle or sunsets. Sort of mood setting for your cabin.
