The North Star which can be experienced on Royal Caribbean’s Quantum class ships has been voted Best Cruise Ship feature in this year’s Cruise Ship Awards by Cruise Hive.
The North Star which can be found onboard Quantum of the Seas, Anthem of the Seas and the upcoming Ovation of the Seas got more votes than any other cruise ship feature. Other features in the category were The plank on NCL’s Breakaway class ships, SeaWalk on Princess Cruises Royal class ships, The Lawn Club on Celebrity Cruises Solstice class ships and Thrill Theater on the Carnival Breeze.
The Plank which is featured onboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s Breakaway class ships came in second place and Princess Cruises SeaWalk which can be found on Royal Princess and Regal Princess came in third place.
