Building a cruise ship involves so many aspects, aside to just construction of the ship’s steel structure.
One of them is putting the final touches inside the vessel, bringing a dash of luxury to the guests at the same time.
Go behind the scenes at Meyer Werft’s cabin factory where Royal Caribbean International’s Quantum of the Seas staterooms are constructed using a production line.
The Quantum Class spans 18 decks, encompass 167,800 gross registered tons, carry 4,180 guests at double occupancy and feature 2,090 staterooms, the cruise line’s largest and most advanced staterooms ever.
The Quantum class of ships is expected to take a dramatic leap forward, introducing more game-changing “firsts at sea” such as a skydiving experience, a thrilling adventure that transports guests more than 300 feet in the air; indoor sports and entertainment complex at sea with bumper cars, roller skating etc.
The cruise ship will debut in November 2014, and will spend its inaugural season sailing from Cape Liberty in Bayonne, N.J., before repositioning to Shanghai, China in May 2015.
