Quantum of the Seas

Quantum of the Seas is the name of Royal Caribbean International's new cruise ship that is billed as the industry's first at sea to offer attractions like bumper cars, simulated skydiving and an observation capsule called The North Star, with a bird's eye view 300 feet (91 meters) above the water. It was designed as a game changer with technological innovations never imagined aboard a cruise ships.

Inspired by the London Eye, the ship's North Star bird's eye view capsule can hold 14 people and is attached to a crane-like arm. The skydiving attraction, called RipCord, uses a powerful wind flow to keep participants aloft while floating and spinning over an outdoor deck. An indoor complex called SeaPlex hosts basketball, table tennis, trapeze instruction and bumper cars. The space converts to a dance floor for roller-skaters, with a DJ hovering above in a see-through pod. Another space, Two70, has a 270-degree panoramic view and hosts aerialists and other performances.

Royal Caribbean also owns the largest cruise ships in the world, the Oasis of the Seas and the Allure of the Seas, which carry more than 6,000 people apiece. Quantum of the Seas can carry 4,180 passengers.
