“This is one of the most amazing ships I've ever seen and I know our clients will love it,” said Mysza of the Quantum of the Seas.

Marking one of many Quantum-class firsts, Montrose Travel Co-President Andi Mysza 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, Mysza 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.

Montrose Travel 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. “This is one of the most amazing ships I've ever seen and I know our clients will love it,” said Mysza of the Quantum of the Seas. “I’m most excited to be able to get a real internet signal at sea. Royal Caribbean has developed a game changer!”

Aboard Quantum of the Seas, Mysza 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. Montrose Travel 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 week’s time. Mysza 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 Montrose Travel 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 late October, 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 in November 2014 at her New York Harbor homeport of Cape Liberty in Bayonne, N.J.
