Royal Caribbean is once again raising the bar. Their newest ship, Quantum of the Seas, will have more amenities and more dazzling displays than any other of its ships. Some of the new attractions will be a skydiving simulator, bumper cars, a huge wall of screens that change the view throughout the day, and the North Star, which is a jewel shaped capsule that will take passengers 300 foot above sea level. The North Star concept was inspired by the London Eye.
The two ships being built by Royal Caribbean as part of its “Project Sunshine” are Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas. Although the ships will not be as large as the Oasis of the Seas or Allure of the Seas, the 4,180 passenger ships will have more technology, features, and dazzle than any ships currently sailing.

“The new ship will be such a leap forward in terms of vessel design and guest experiences that we thought the name Quantum of the Seas was perfectly appropriate,” said Adam Goldstein, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International.
Royal Caribbean said today that Quantum of the Seas will sail out of the New York area after it debuts in 2014 on seven- to 12-night trips. Itineraries for Anthem of the Seas have yet to be announced. Bookings for Quantum of the Seas will be available to members of the line’s frequent cruiser club, the Crown & Anchor Society, starting on May 27 before opening to the general public on June 4.
