Quantum of the Seas Virtual Tour
Broadway, T.V. and film star, Kristin Chenoweth, will serve as Quantum's godmother, leading to speculation about the ship's on-stage offerings. New, multi-level venue space Two70° promises an interactive experience, day or night, with 270-degree panoramic views of the sea scaling almost three decks in floor-to-ceiling glass. Meanwhile, Music Hall will channel a "rebellious and edgy" aesthetic, and will feature live performances, DJs and theme nights.
Two70° will be home to The Café @ Two70°, a gourmet marketplace providing passengers with casual dining in an enveloping atmosphere. A library and workshop can be found on the second level, and will feature guest lecturers, demos, and arts and crafts activities. By night, look for the spiraling staircase which will encircle Royal Caribbean's first ice bar. A combination of live performers (including aerialists) and audiovisual elements will transformTwo70° into a feast for the senses. Top to bottom, this event space will be outfitted with digital projections, 100-inch LED T.V. screens on robotic arms that descend from the ceiling, and illuminating floor lights.
You will know you are in the right place when you see the leather, chains and mirrors. Music Hall, a rock-and-roll inspired space, will be outfitted with a distinctive design, and daily activities from sun-up to sundown. Spanning decks three and four, Music Hall will host dance classes and improv workshops, along with bars and billiards. A raised main stage will feature live music with unobstructed views.
Billed as the largest indoor active space at sea, Seaplex will be a sporting and entertainment venue with everything from a full-size regulation basketball court to the first flying trapeze at sea. Did we mention roller skating and a bumper car rink which grooves to the sounds of a floating DJ booth above? Found on the mezzanine level will be four activity rooms with a view, each with a custom theme. Also on that level you will find the first food truck at sea, serving snacks up to the masses at-play. Seaplex, along with the outdoor sports court, will be located on deck 15 on both Quantum-class ships.
