Yesterday, Royal Caribbean announced its entertainment lineup for their forthcoming ship, Quantum of the Seas. Known for quality entertainment, Royal Caribbean appears to be stepping things up with the debut of Quantum. Joining MAMMA MIA! at sea will be an interesting new concept, Sonic Odyssey.
“..an original Royal Caribbean Production, conceived and created by William Close, Under The Radar Chicago and Art House Live, is inspired by musician and innovator William Close and his variety of one-of-a-kind majestic instruments. This unbelievable production includes his signature Earth Harp, a unique Drum Wall consisting of 136 drums, a Vocal Percussion Jacket, Violin Dress and more. Sonic Odyssey is an original, theatrical masterpiece that weaves together a nine-piece live orchestra with a cast of singers, dancers, aerialists and gymnasts to envelop the audience in a spectacular show that must be seen and heard to be believed.”
One of the most interesting spaces on the ship to me, Two70, will feature its own shows, Starwater and Virtual Concert. Both shows will capitalize on the unique space featuring Roboscreens which I expect will make for stunning visuals. One might forget they’re at sea.
All in all, it looks like Quantum of the Seas is shaping up to be a spectacular ship. While not as large as her Oasis Class siblings, Royal Caribbean is doing some interesting things with their newest design. I can’t wait to sail on Quantum of the Seas later this year.
