Quantum of the Seas: A Concise Guide to Royal Caribbean’s Newest Cruise Ship

The Quantum of the Seas is the newest cruise ship in Royal Caribbean International's fleet. It is the first ship to enter service in the "Quantum class," which will consist of three ships in total.

The ship has only been in operation for a few months, but it has already garnered a lot of attention, in part because it is huge, flashy new ship from one of the largest cruise lines in the world, and in part because the vessel aims to be the most energy-efficient cruise ship sailing today.

Although nominally similar, Freedom Ship and Freedom of the Seas are entirely different entities. One is a cruise ship, the other a plan in the works, so Freedom Ship and Freedom of the Seas don't even share the most basic ontological trait, namely, existence. Below is a little bit about Freedom Ship and Freedom of the Seas, which we have supplied to make the difference between the two crystal clear. Read more [...]
