Welcome to Michael’s Genuine® Pub, the first American gastropub on the seas onboard Royal Caribbean’s new Quantum-class Ships! Quantum of the Seas will sail out of the New York Harbor from her homeport of Cape Liberty on 7- to 12-night itineraries during the winter 2014/15 season. Anthem of the Seas will call Southampton, UK, home in April 2015 and offer cruises to the Mediterranean. It’s been a lot of hard work to get to this point of being able to finally share it with you, and we have lots more cut out for us from now until the first sailing this fall but it’s time to celebrate with a little homecoming after yesterday’s New York City reveal! Please join us next week for happy hour on Thursday, April 3 from 4:30-6:00p.m. where complimentary Michael’s Genuine Home Brew will be flowing with snacks from the Pub menu from our flagship kitchen. First sailing is the Transatlantic crossing from Southampton, UK on October 31 after we train in Bremerhaven, GR!
A bar with a galley of its own, the Pub offers a menu of Michael’s signature savory snacks and sweets, artisan charcuterie and cheeses, specialty cocktails, craft beer on tap and in the bottle like Michael’s Genuine® Home Brew and a small but focused wine and spirits list. The Pub is a place to meet for food and drink made fresh, simple and pure using only the best ingredients sourced from America’s best producers. We kinda can’t hardly wait to sidle up to the bar for the first time and settle into our neighborhood on the high seas!
And there’s a bonus with this news — a chef we respect immensely for his fresh approach and social entrepreneurialism also joins the Quantum Class as a partner, Britain’s Jamie Oliver, bringing aboard rustic, homemade favorites at Jamie’s Italian. Lots of learning and fun in store with our new mates, and we are excited to get to know his team as we work to bring both projects online. I know where we’re eating onboard when we aren’t at the Pub!
