Royal Caribbean International’s Quantum of the Seas has arrived in Brisbane, Australia, for the 2023-2024 austral summer season, offering three to nine-night voyages to the South Pacific and Queensland coast.

Quantum of the Seas arrived in Brisbane Port on 28 October 2023 and will offer itineraries calling at Airlie Beach and Cairns in Australia, as well as Mystery Island and Port Vila in Vanuatu and Noumea in New Caledonia.

Quantum of the Seas will be one of three Royal Caribbean ships sailing in the region in what will be Royal Caribbean’s “biggest season ever”, with the operator expecting a 15 per cent increase in booked guests from 2022-2023.

Brilliance of the Seas made its Australia debut in Sydney on 22 October 2023, while Ovation of the Seas is scheduled to arrive in Sydney on 3 November and will offer three to 11-night voyages visiting destinations along New Zealand’s coast, such as Wellington, Dunedin and Christchurch.

“With the highly anticipated return of Quantum of the Seas to Brisbane, Royal Caribbean’s biggest and boldest season in Australia is in full swing,” said Gavin Smith, vice president and managing director of Australia and New Zealand at Royal Caribbean International. “Quantum and its signature line-up of experiences for all ages and types of travellers became a fan favourite right away during its first season in Queensland, and in response to that popularity, now there are 25 itineraries to choose from that vary in length and destinations. This unprecedented response to the idea of the ultimate family holiday is why we’ll see one-third more holidaymakers join us for a summer getaway like no other.”
