Sophisticated Cruise Specialists at Crown Cruise Vacations Provide Exclusive Offers, Exceptional Value & Unparalleled Service
PRINCETON, N.J., (Sept. 23, 2014) – Marking one of many Quantum-class firsts, Crown Cruise Vacations President Ross Spalding joined Royal Caribbean International for an exclusive onboard preview of Quantum of the Seas, the most highly anticipated cruise ship in the industry to launch in November 2014. In an exclusive group of U.S. and Canadian travel partners and news media, Spalding joined Royal Caribbean's Senior Vice President of Sales, Trade Support and Service Vicki Freed to inspect the progress of the ship's construction at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. Spalding also was among the audience for the globally telecasted Quantum Technology Reveal, when Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.'s Chairman and CEO Richard Fain and technology expert David Pogue announced that Quantum of the Seas will be the first Smart Ship in the world.
"The preview of Royal Caribbean's Quantum of the Seas was an amazing experience and I was pleased Crown Cruise Vacations was included in this event so that we can recommend first-hand to our clients this ship as the perfect cruise vacation," says Spalding.
Aboard Quantum of the Seas, Spalding had a chance to view some of the ship's never-before-seen-at-sea amenities, such as RipCord by iFLY, the first skydiving simulator on a cruise ship. The exclusive travel partners group also visited the perch where NorthStar, a jewel capsule that takes guests 300 feet above the ocean for breathtaking views, will be installed within a few weeks' time. Spalding also surveyed Quantum of the Seas' cutting-edge transformative venues, including SeaPlex, the largest indoor sports and entertainment complex at sea featuring bumper cars, roller skating and more, and Two70º, a great room which will offer entertainment never seen before on land or sea, and where they took in a demonstration of the venue's six Roboscreens, each measuring more than seven feet high and controlled by powerful robotic arms.
"We are so glad to have Crown Cruise Vacations' Ross Spalding with us on this very special shipyard preview of Quantum of the Seas," said Freed. "Some of Quantum of the Seas' new experiences are so innovative that you have to see them in order to believe it. While the ship is only launching in November, it's important that we offer our valued travel agent partners a chance to personally examine what they are selling in order to best help guide their clients on an unforgettable vacation with Royal Caribbean."
The Quantum Class spans 18 decks, encompasses 167,800 gross registered tons, carries 4,180 guests at double occupancy and features 2,090 staterooms. Quantum of the Seas launch takes place in November 2014 at her New York Harbor homeport of Cape Liberty in Bayonne, N.J.
