Royal Caribbean International has developed a Quantum Experience Advisors programme to provide the interior design, key amenities and activities on its Quantum-class ships, which will debut in November 2014 with Quantum of the Seas, and April 2015 with sister ship Anthem of the Seas.
The Quantum Experience Advisors team consists of a group of celebrity experts in fields such as design, sports and fitness and entertainment, all of whom will be actively involved in developing new guest programmes and onboard features.
“Our teams at Royal Caribbean are always leading the charge in terms of delivering innovative, industry-leading ships and programming,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, executive vice president of operations at Royal Caribbean. “Now, by teaming up with some of the brightest and most talented professionals in their respective fields, we are sure to make the Quantum-class some of the most amazing ships to ever set sail. Guest experience is our number one priority and our Quantum Experience Advisors are bringing fresh insights, opinions and perspectives to help us deliver the kinds of ‘wow’ moments that can only be found on Royal Caribbean.”
In May 2013, the cruise line appointed Genevieve Gorder, a popular American interior designer and HGTV personality, as the Quantum Experience Advisor for Design. Since her appointment, Gorder has been collaborating with Royal Caribbean's newbuild and design team on the decor and furnishings of the loft and suite accommodations onboard Quantum of the Seas.
“It’s exhilarating to work with Royal Caribbean, a brand known for pushing the envelope in ship design and innovation,” said Gorder. “This project has been like nothing I have ever worked on before and is giving me the chance to collaborate with a team of ship building experts to come up with designs that will work onboard a ship as well as inspire every guest that stays onboard.”
Royal Caribbean will reveal several other Quantum Experience Advisors in the coming months.
