A record breaking North Star

Just when we thought Royal Caribbean had achieved about everything possible, they come and surprise us again. Allready recognized as having the largest cruise ships in the world they have now made it into the Guinness Book of World Records with their 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.”record-north-star-5
