SHANGHAI, Dec. 1, 2016 – Royal Caribbean International has made it into the Guinness Book of World Records with its unique North Star attraction aboard the cruise line’s Quantum-class ships. The North Star is a one-of-a-kind and intimate experience that takes guests on an exhilarating journey high above the sea. This glass observation capsule gently rises more than 300 feet in the air and rotates upwards and over the sides of the ship to provide the most breathtaking, 360-degree views imaginable. These views helped the North Star break the record for “Highest Viewing Deck on a Cruise Ship.”
The three Quantum-class ships offer world-class vacation experiences to international guests. Two of the technologically advanced ships sail from Asia and the Pacific region, Quantum of the Seas from Beijing (Tianjin), China and Ovation of the Seas from Shanghai (Baoshan), China; Sydney, Australia; and Singapore. The third, Anthem of the Seas, cruises from Cape Liberty Cruise Port in New York Harbor to Bermuda, The Bahamas and the Caribbean.
First introduced in 2014, the Quantum-class ships boldly redefined the industry with unprecedented innovations in design, thrilling activities, game-changing technology, multidimensional entertainment and a robust, variety of dining opportunities that create the ultimate, contemporary cruising experience found only on Royal Caribbean.
