Hey All Sarune here. I was absolutely delighted for an opportunity to spend two days on board the newest and most innovative cruise ships in the world – Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas. More importantly I got the chance to experience The North Star, the most iconic attraction on board this amazing cruise ship and I would love to share my experience with you
Quantum of the Seas North Star
If, like me, you are not too keen on heights, there is no need to worry! Safety is priority!!
There was a walkway of about 10 feet between the control panel and the doorway complete with a little bridge that swings away from the capsule when it’s ready for lift-off. The capsule holds 14 people and is made of glass so you have fabulous 360 degree views of the ship and beyond.
Once I had my feet firmly on board the capsule, I completely forgot about my fears and about the fact that I am about to be lifted 300 feet into the air above the ship. It moved so slowly and smoothly, I did not feel a thing, and all you get is the best experience of all – the views!!!
You can enjoy the North Star throughout the day on board. I had tried it out around three in the afternoon, and given the time of year, there was a lot of reflection from the sun, which can make take photos, a little difficult. So keep this in mind when you plan your time on board this amazing “smart” ship
The North Star is certainly the most iconic attractionn onboard Quantum of the Seas. The experience lasts approximately 15 minutes and will leave you feeling exhilarated, as I have to say, you will be from all the other amazing on board attractions.
So when you get a chance to experience it don’t let any doubts get in your way. Just do it!
