Royal Carribean officially christened their newest ship today, Quantum of the Seas, which is also their biggest, bestest and tech-savviest ship yet.

There is so much onboard this ship, it will take more time than we have to highlight all of them. What you need to know is that Quantum will have robots making drinks, bumper cars, an observation pod, a skydiving simulator, kids programs for every age and stage, family-friendly modular staterooms (see photos of a room here), and high-tech RFID bracelets that will act as your stateroom key and your credit card. For more info, go here. 

Cynthia Drescher of Jaunted.com the best travel know-it-all out there (seriously follow her on Instagram and you will become obsessed), just sent us some snapshots of the two-story kids play area on the Adventure Deck, called Aquanuts, and which features several characters from Royal Caribbean's partnership with Dreamworks. (There are other opportunities throughout the cruise to hang with Dreamworks characters, too.)

The ship also has a Royal Babies & Tots nursery area, where "trained professionals" will watch babies from 6 months to 36 months for an hourly fee. We saw a pic of it on Royal Caribbean Blog's instagram and it definitely wasn't as exciting as this room.

Something else that might put you at ease, aside from a fun place to send the kids for a bit? After the mandatory muster drill, the ship plays an animated video about washing hands. There are also hand sanitizer stations everywhere. Find them and use them. 

UPDATE: We just got some more photos from Cynthia!

The kids pool area: It has a baby pool, along with kid-sized chaise lounges, and a wave current pool that's shaped like a donut. 

Here's a shot of the Teen Lounge's "Living Room."

 

For an 8-night Bahamas cruise on Quantum of the Seas, a family junior suite starts at around $2,700 for the adults and about $880 for the children, bringing it to about $8,000 for the trip. Check out a sneak peek of a family junior suite here. A regular stateroom, which will be a tight squeeze for four people, start at around $1,200 for the adults and around $700 for the kids, bringing it to about $3,700 for the trip.
