There are many activities to keep you occupied both night and day when travelling aboard Royal Caribbean’s brand new liner, Quantum of the Seas.
The vast range of activities means you may not get to experience all that the cruise has to offer, especially on some of the shorter voyages, such as the four-day round trip from Singapore to Port Klang in Malaysia. Whatever you do, be sure to not miss out on some of the big-ticket highlights.
During the day, head up on deck and hop onto the North Star. Inside this transparent capsule hanging from a motorised arm, get transported more than 90 metres into the air while enjoying the uninhibited, breathtaking views of the sea.
If that doesn’t get your heart racing, then indoor skydiving will. Ripcord by iFly lets you experience the thrill of the extreme sport without facing the actual dangers of aerial freefall.
For something less intense, the Royal Theater is home to Royal Caribbean’s two main shows. Its own original production, Sonic Odyssey, is a blend of live orchestral music, singing, dancing, gymnastics and stunts, and also features a drum-wall housing 136 percussion instruments.
Or sit in on something more familiar with Broadway’s smash hit musical Mamma Mia!, set to Swedish pop group Abba’s timeless tunes like Dancing Queen, The Winner Takes It All and Money, Money, Money.
At night, head down to Music Hall which bursts into life when the sun sets. Expect live bands to be paying musical tributes to the likes of The Beatles, Bee Gees, Journey and Bon Jovi as you dine or enjoy a pint.
There is even a party area, complete with a live DJ, for you to get your groove on. The venue also plays host to Mamma Mia!’s Broadway-styled after-party featuring cast members from the show at the Royal Theater.
And if you are not tuckered out by then, there is Wink, an adult-only late-night programme for those who enjoy some classy, unadulterated entertainment.
