Is this the newest "Oasis twin" being built by Chantiers de l'Atlantique in Saint Nazaire ?
No. Different class entirely. The Quantum
class, formerly dubbed Project Sunshine, will be similarly sized to the Freedom
class ships (Freedom of the Seas
, Liberty of the Seas
, and Independence of the Seas
), but will carry about 600 more passengers. I'm interested to see how RCI treats it. My wife and I are RCI fans and have cruised on Grandeur of the Seas
and Freedom of the Seas
- when I heard the original project name I was hoping that the Quantum
s would have some of the features of the Radiance
class ships that make them so beloved (particularly the amount of glass and views on the ship - as much as I loved Freedom
sometimes you need a reminder that you're on the water and in some places, especially the Royal Promenade, you feel completely disconnected from the sea).
South Carolina - too small to be its own country, too big to be a mental asylum.
