I couldn't imagine being so close to New Jersey without visiting the town where Jon Bon Jovi was born. Luckily, a local guide (Remo, who is Danish and very friendly) offers tours of places of interest for Bon Jovi fans. He picked us up in his car at Central Park, waving the flag of Denmark so we'd recognize him. Then he took us to JBJ's birthplace, school, concert hall where he first performed, mansion, the JBJ Soul Foundation restaurant, and his Soho apartment. The tour takes 4 and a half hours, although we were stuck in traffic so it actually lasted 6. Remo is a fun guy, and the journey is enlivened by the music of...guess who? I'd definitely recommend this tour to fans of Bon Jovi.
The Quantum of the Seas is one of the most high-tech ships of the Royal Caribbean line. You can spend time practicing stunts in the circus school or playing basketball on the court. Or you can take a bumper car for a spin (the first bumper cars on the sea!), or go skating. Feeling hungry after your exercise? Great, you'll find a variety of food trucks and snacks, and you can listen to a DJ spinning some great tunes as you eat. Lovers of video games will also find a space dedicated to the latest Xbox technology. Enjoy your trip on the high seas!
Robots bartenders? Yes, really! On the Quantum of the Seas boat, two robot arms will mix and serve your favorite drinks. For $12, these robots will make your drink, a technological spectacle where you can enjoy not just your cocktail, but also a really innovative show!
