Quantum of the Seas has many speciality restaurants with its dynamic dining concept, I will cover more of this tomorrow but today i thought I would share pictures of Silk and Wonderland which really is an Alice in Wonderland experience.
Walking into to Music Hall was the biggest wow of the day for me, Royal Caribbean have decided to use two floors to create a live music venue with a real groove, pool tables plenty of seats and a bar on both floors, this really is the place to enjoy music live and loud as it should be. This is like chalk and cheese to the bionic bar a concept where a bionic arm actually mixes your cocktails.
One of the new concepts on board Quantum of the Seas is Michael’s Genuine Pub. This is the place to try a craft beer including Michael’s Genuine Pubs very own Home Brew, this is combined with gourmet snacks and I’ve just tried a sample of the peanut butter pie which was a very well balanced mix of sweet and savoury. Quantum of the Seas does not have a Royal Promenade but instead the Royal Esplanade which in my opinion flows a lot better and with a large choice of dining and entertainment venues in this area every guest will be able to find a favourite spot to enjoy. Below I have a few pictures of Michaels Genuine Pub plus the menu as this is one of the additional charge dining options.
I feel like a big kid again, just been on the Dodgems in the amazing SeaPlex area which also converts to a roller disco and a basketball court. In the same area is the Sea Plex Dog House where I have just had the most amazing smoke house hot dog on cheese bread – wow, my children would love this, who am I kidding they would have to drag me out of here.
The modern contemporary feel also applies to the stateroom, my home for the next two days is a Spa Junior Suite. Hopefully my pictures will show the well designed stateroom in all its glory. The balcony is well appointed with very comfortable lounge chairs and there are separate WC facilities and separate bath and shower units. New on Quantum of the Seas is the ‘wowband’ a wristband that acts as a keycard.
First impressions last and my first impression is Quantum of the Seas is very positive, a bright, contemporary, modern feel and this ship is going to take cruising to the next level. I have a few photos below of the interior including the Two70 lounge and their signature drink ‘the balancing act’ which is champagne with a crime de cassis foam balancing on top.
