I will not once again list the technical characteristics of the new liner, but I will draw your attention to the innovations of this ship. So in addition to the traditional entertainment, surfing simulator and climbing wall, a vertical wind tunnel will be presented on board. In addition, the most spectacular attraction will be the observation tower, located on the leading edge of the upper deck. This 7-tones design with a glass capsule at the end and a 41-meter «hand» can take on board a group of 14 people and carry over the ship at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level. One of the novelties will be a large indoor sports hall with a full-size basketball court, located on deck 15, which can be transformed into a dance floor.A two-story music hall between the 3rd and 4th decks will also serve as a night club and a small music hall.

Unlike the previously built Voyager, Freedom and Oasis liners, the Quantum-class will not have a traditional ice rink and a Promenade in the center of the ship.

Unlike previous projects, new liners will not have a main restaurant, where traditional lunches are served during cruises. Instead, the guests will be offered a concept of dynamic nutrition, used on the ships of Norwegian Cruise Line, which feature is the preliminary evening order of the upcoming day.
