Yes, lots of innovations. The skydiving experience will be huge. Plus they will have more than a few solo cabins and some of them will have balconies, which is a major plus.

That sphere thing might be cool but it sure is ugly if the pics are any indication. Looks like some space alien probe like thing...bet they remove it at some point in its lifetime.

Quantum of the Seas will sail out of the Bayonne, NJ after it debuts in 2014 on seven- to 12-night trips.

Roller skating, Circus school with trapaze & North Star a giant mechanical arm that transports passengers high above the vessel in a glass capsule.

The RipCord by iFly attractions are vertical wind tunnels that simulate the experience of skydiving.

A multi-purpose performance venue called Music Hall. The two-story area will boast live performances, music with DJs, theme night parties and billiards.

Bookings for Quantum of the Seas start with the Crown & Anchor Society on May 27. The general public on June 4.

Next Royal Caribbean ship to feature gee-whiz ride

I hope the first voyage is not a 7 day! I could really get excited about a 12 day cruise!!! Or should I say MORE excited!!!

The North Star does nothing for me! It will not be on my list of things to do! Not in this lifetime anyway.

Anyone else notice the similarities in external design between Quantum and the Solstice class of Celebrity? It is especially true with the lines of the aft end, the long narrow hull, funnel layout. Lots of shared 'boilerplate' blue prints here.
