Set to be outfitted with all the regulars expected and depended upon in a Royal Caribbean (RC) cruise-liner, Quantum will also boast skydiving, simulated by the use of air pressure, bumper cars and a 300 feet bird's eye lookout called The North Star.

It's a feature that has been offered at various land-based parks, but this will be a first for the 'high' seas. The North Star, described by the execs of RC as an 'observation capsule' is said to be a sea-bound replica of the London Eye.
