Royal Caribbean’s brand-new Quantum of the Seas doesn’t arrive in its Bayonne, New Jersey homeport until November. But anticipation has been building, particularly for some of the features that will be among the first seen at sea.
Take the North Star, a jewel-shaped glass capsule that rises 300 feet over sea level. This ship will also offer a skydiving simulator, studio cabins with balconies and virtual balconies that will bring sea views to inside cabins.
We here at Cruise Critic are excited for Seaplex, designed to be the largest sports and entertainment complex at sea. Among its attractions: a circus school, where you can try the trapeze, roller skating and for all you amusement park lovers, the first bumper cars at sea.
As you can see from the video above, Royal executives had a lot of decisions to make when choosing the bumper cars – everything from the type of floor to the color of the bumper cars themselves. We have photos of the prototypes, which leads us to our latest contest: Guess what model the new bumper cars will be.
While technically each bumper car is the same, the differences lie in the aesthetics: What the seats look like, where the lights are and so on. Royal Caribbean’s team was looking for a nostalgic feel, so you might want to think back to your childhood amusement park as you make your decision.
You have until 10 a.m. Friday to leave your answer in the comments — either blue, red, green, yellow or purple. A winner, who will be selected randomly, will receive “Bold Visions, Blue Seas” a limited-edition commemorative Royal Caribbean book that contains photos and descriptions of all of the brands under the Royal Caribbean Cruises Limited corporate umbrella. The book is not available for public purchase at this time.
