Skydiving at Sea? It’s here now

Quantum of the Seas gives passengers a virtual lift.


Each time a new ship is launched it is a source of excitement in the cruise world. But this week, Royal Caribbean’s new 167,000 ton Quantum of Seas is an extraordinary event in that the ship has several new amenities causing extended applause throughout the cruise industry. In addition to interesting features such as inside staterooms with virtual balconies and a crane arm lifting passengers 135 feet above the deck there is also a virtual “sky-dive” experience which gives the passengers the sensation of being weightless.

For the adventurous guests, the sky-dive experience has to be one of the most intriguing on the ship. Royal Caribbean has supplied a video on this ride which is called Ripcord.
