Shipping Minister Thodoris Dritsas, Alternate Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura and the US Ambassador to Greece David Pearce were at the port of Piraeus on Monday morning, 18th May to welcome the Quantum of the Seas, one of the largest cruisers to dock at the Greek port.
Launched in 2014, the 1 billion dollar Royal Caribbean dream ship has 2,090 staterooms plus 28 for solo travellers, 16 guest decks served by 16 lifts, 18 restaurants ranging from Asian and Italian to pub-style and steakhouse options, and a total 1,500 crew members from 68 countries serving its passengers.
But what makes the Quantum of the Seas special is the latest in technology as well as the limitless recreational activities on board including bumper cars, simulated skydiving and circus trapeze classes, a rock-climbing wall, roller-skating, basketball, a shuffleboard court, the North Star observation dock that swings daring passengers some 92 meters above the sea so they can catch a bird’s-eye view and robots mixing drinks at the bionic bar.
On a more human level, super chefs Jamie Oliver, Michael Schwartz and Devin Alexander have drawn up innovative meals for passengers, who book their meals and activities via apps.To read more, please visit Greek Travel Pages.
