We can always travel to China and cruise in that area.


I wish that we were allowed to travel to Cuba.

I'm pretty sure a pink polar bear would be a novelty in Cuba!!!

Cuba is on my bucket list. My dad and his buddies used to sail down for weekends when he lived in South Florida.

American vacation dollars would transform that country in a matter of a few short years! As long as the money stayed in the country and out of politicians hands.

Cuba is on my bucket list as well and it would be easy to get to since I live in Florida.

It is just ART. From all of the art I have seen put on to ships and what RCCL has spent on Quantum for its art, this coloured bear is great. Also like the wall of thousands of butterflies.

Quantum of the Seas float-out features 30-foot pink bear

Royal Caribbean International’s Quantum of the Seas was floated out of its construction berth at the Meyer Werft shipyard sporting a 30-foot pink bear on a top deck.

The sculpture, entitled “From Afar,” is part of the ship’s 2,980-piece art collection. It is formed from 1,340 stainless steel triangles, weighs eight tons, and is intended to provoke thoughts about “What Makes Life Worth Living,” the theme of the ship’s art collection, according to Royal Caribbean.

“The pieces we have commissioned for Quantum of the Seas are stunning, engaging and, in some cases, completely unexpected,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, executive vice president of operations at Royal Caribbean.

The 18-deck, 4,180-passenger Quantum will undergo two months of finishing before being delivered. It’s first voyage is scheduled for mid-November in New York.

Default pink bear

Well, the pink bear is certainly unexpected....and, in my opinion, out of place on top of a beautiful cruise ship. Very tacky and classless.

Of course you are entitled to your opinion.


But some people do like bears, pink or otherwise.


Think of it as a big ' Teddy Bear ' and cruise on.

Take care,

Prefer having a picture taken with "Puss in Boots" but I also like the Pink Polar Bear.
