Royal Caribbean have recently announced their new addition to their fleet, the Quantum of the Seas.
I have to say that Royal Caribbean certainly push the boundaries when adding new features to their ships, some people see these things as gimmicks but I say the more new and exciting things to do, the better.
The new ship will carry 4,180 passengers so she will be slightly larger than a Freedom Class ship like the Independence of the Seas but certainly not as large as the Oasis and Allure of the Seas.

Princess Cruises announces that Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge will name Royal Princess, the newest addition to the line’s fleet.
The ceremony at which The Duchess will name the ship will take place in Southampton on Thursday 13th June, and will be the highlight of week-long inaugural celebrations to welcome the vessel into service.
The spectacular ceremony will uphold British ship-naming traditions including the blessing, a performance by the Royal Marines Band and the pipers of the Irish Guards, together with contemporary highlights.

Norwegian Cruise Line are a 4* American cruise company that like to differ from other cruise line’s by offering what they call a “Freestyle” cruising experience.
