An Engineering Marvel Takes Guests to New Heights

MIAMI - Royal Caribbean International continues to deliver unprecedented and bold innovations with the introduction of North Star, one of the most anticipated features on the Quantum class of ships.  North Star is an exclusive and intimate experience that takes guests on a once-in-a-lifetime exhilarating journey - with the development of a jewel-shaped glass capsule that gently rises to more than 300 feet above sea level, and rotates upwards and over the sides of the ship to provide the most breathtaking, 360-degree views imaginable.

Located on the top deck towards the bow of the ship, North Star is a 15-minute journey that will elevate guests both physically and emotionally.  Available at sea as well as in port, guests will find the most spectacular and sought after viewing times to be at sunrise and sunset.  No two experiences on North Star will be the same, and every guest will walk away with a personal and awe-inspiring connection with the sea and the ship's destinations.

While North Star is complimentary, three premium packages also will be available for advance purchase and booking, including packages for Sunrise and Sunset flights, or a Private Flight, which is ideal for marriage proposals and wedding ceremonies.  All packages include a pre-flight reception, in-flight Champagne toast, a commemorative flight certificate, and a post-flight brunch or dinner.

Additional details about dining, entertainment and other unexpected features and amenities on Quantum of the Seas will be unveiled in the coming months.
