Miami's Newest Cruise Ship Waves Off The Competition With Bird's- Eye Capsule

Royal Caribbean's newest ship loads up on bells and whistles!
A mechanical "North Star arm" will heft passengers to a glass-viewing capsule to give bird's eye view.

Best news of all -- it's free! Unlike the London Eye, which costs more than $25 per person to ride, the North Star will be complimentary to passengers on its Quantum of the Seas.

The Quantum and sister ship Anthem of the Seas, set to launch in fall 2014, and spring 2015, include: Virtual balconies for interior cabins, the first sky-diving style experience at seas and the largest indoor sports and entertainment venue at sea.
It will have bumper cars -- a cruise industry first -- as well as roller skating, a circus school with trapeze, a full-size basketball court, dancing and more.
