Quantum of the Seas will also feature the industry’s largest and most advanced stateroom accommodations, including lofts and suites designed by HGTV star Genevieve Gorder, as well as sports and fitness offerings influenced by former NFL linebacker Dhani Jones, both part of the Quantum Experience Advisor program.

Last but not least, as part of Royal Caribbean’s Broadway at Sea offerings, Quantum of the Seas will feature a Tony Award-winning performance of Mamma Mia!, the smash hit musical based on the songs of Swedish pop group ABBA.
