Ever Wonder What Soaring Like a Bird is Like

RipCord by iFly on Royal Caribbean Quantum of the Seas
Why Would Anyone Step Out of a Perfectly Good Airplane?

Have you ever wanted to experience the sensation of flying through the air, but didn't have the guts to step outside of a perfectly good airplane?

"The chance to fly and be balanced in the air is a wonderful feeling and I've tried it" - Richard Fain, Chairman &CEO Royal Caribbean, Ltd.
That's right: Fly! 

Another first you'll find only on Royal Caribbean is RipCord by iFly®.   This skydiving simulator lets you experience the sheer thrill and exhilaration of flying. RipCord by iFly®'s air machine will keep you afloat in a safe, controlled environment. So you can feel the wind in your hair, and utter WOW of flying, all without ever having to leave the ship.

You Can Soar Like an Eagle

The sensation of flying takes place inside a 23-foot tall glass flight chamber so guests will have stunning ocean views as well.  It is surrounded by a viewing platform for friends, family and other spectators.  It's located on the Sports Court at the aft of the ship, will overlook the FlowRider surf simulator and is situated adjacent to the Rock Climbing Wall.

Without the Risk

According to The Skydiving Fatalities Database, which is an unofficial record of fatal skydiving accidents since January 1, 2004, fatalities are declining but there were still 14 recorded in 2014.   If you don't have to step out of an airplane, but can have the same experience, would that be something you'd be more likely to try?


Royal Caribbean International® unveils a Quantum leap forward in cruising. With newly designed staterooms, innovative features, and transformative venues, Royal Caribbean's newest ship, Quantum of the Seas, elevates cruising to an entirely new level. Sailing Fall 2014 from the New York area.

You MUST Act Quickly

Royal Caribbean recently announced that Quantum of the Seas® stay in the New York area will be short-lived.  The ship will sail out of Cape Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey, as scheduled in November, 2014.   Following that it will be redeploying to China in Spring 2015 where it will homeport  in Shanghai, China starting in May, 2015.
