Royal Caribbean Goes Quantum

Posted May 10th, 2013

Skydiving and observation capsules onboard a cruise ship? They're no longer just a possibility, thanks to a new entertainment innovation from Royal Caribbean.

The cruise line has a new class of ships named Quantum, which, among other world-first entertainment options, will include a skydiving wind tunnel and a unique observation capsule extending over the edge of the ship.

The iFly wind tunnel will allow passengers to experience the rush of skydiving from the very top of the ship's 18 decks. While for those travellers who prefer their thrills a little more down to earth, a North Star observation capsule will extend 90 metres above the waterline over the edge of the ship.

As well as these, passengers will also be able to enjoy a SeaPlex sports complex with basketball court, roller skating and even a bumper car ring.

A Music Hall is devoted to live performances, theme parties and DJs, while those travellers who simply want to relax and soak up the stunning ocean views will be able to do so in utmost luxury through a great room with floor to ceiling glass walls spanning three decks.

Even passengers staying in interior rooms on these cruise ships won't miss out on the views, as all such rooms on Quantum ships include a 'virtual balcony' screen displaying images of the ocean and destination, all in real time. The Quantum ships can carry up to 4180 passengers.
