Royal Caribbean
North Star is now affixed to Quantum of the Seas
With Quantum of the Seas set to arrive at New York Harbor on Nov. 10, Royal Caribbean International is counting down the days with a big Manhattan media splash.

The ship is on New York City billboards, screens and digital displays. Plus, since one of Quantum's features its ultra-fast wireless capability, the cruise line partnered with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to bring free Wi-Fi to underground MTA platforms in Manhattan and Queens.

Also, Royal Caribbean released the first images of the ship with its North Star viewing capsule affixed. Installed in recent days, this glass pod attached to an arm rises more than 300 feet in the air to give 360-degree views for to up to 14 riders at a time.
