Royal Caribbean’s North Star Breaks World Record

Cruise News – Dec. 1, 2016

Royal Caribbean International has made it into the Guinness Book of World Records with its North Star attraction aboard the line’s Quantum-class ships. This one-of-a-kind glass observation capsule gently rises more than 300 feet in the air and rotates upward and over the sides of the ship to provide amazing 360-degree views, which helped the North Star break the record for “Highest Viewing Deck on a Cruise Ship.”

All three Quantum-class ships feature the North Star: Quantum of the Seas from Beijing (Tianjin), China; Ovation of the Seas from Shanghai (Baoshan), Sydney, and Singapore; and Anthem of the Seas from Cape Liberty Cruise Port in New York Harbor to Bermuda, The Bahamas, and the Caribbean.
