Mamma Mia!, Gatsby twenties parties,virtual concerts, roboscreens and shows featuring William Close’s Earth Harp are among the entertainment lineup guests can expect to experience aboard Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas.
Debuting in November, the 4,180-passenger ship will not only boast a range of at-sea first activities, but also shows never before seen on land or at sea.
Pairing advanced technology with dancers, singers, aerialists and musicians to create highly visual productions, executive vice president operations Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said the line is taking a “quantum leap” in all aspects of the ship to create “especially remarkable” entertainment.
“The level of ingenuity, creativity and sheer imagination that has gone into the creation of the entertainment onboard Quantum of the Seas is staggering,” she said.
Forget about props and cardboard sets, the Two70° room is made up of floor-to-ceiling windows, which convert into any scene using 18 projectors over 100 feet wide and 20 feet tall surfaces.
Additionally, the room has six seven feet high moving Roboscreens that are used for their very own performances.
Controlled by robotic arms, the Roboscreens twist, soar and unite as one for an imaginative and original digital production.
“The entertainment in Two70° is simply magical,” vice president of entertainment Nick Weir said.
Main shows in the room include Starwater and Virtual Concert, which incorporates all six Roboscreens to transport guests to a world-class concert.
Seating 1,300 guests, the Royal Theater will be home to Royal Caribbean’s two main shows.
Among the shows is Sonic Odyssey – a show inspired by musician William Close and his variety of one-of-a-kind instruments. The production includes his signature Earth Harp, a Drum wall consisting of 136 drums Vocal Percussion Jackets and Violin Dress.
