But, the main attraction is the North Star observation pod, inspired by London’s Millennium Eye. This jewel-shaped glass capsule can hold up to 14 people at a height of 300 feet above sea level providing 360-degree views over the sides of the ship.

The skydiving attraction, called RipCord, uses a powerful wind flow to keep participants aloft while floating and spinning over an outdoor deck. “You’re not touching anything but the air,” said Adam Goldstein, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International.

Tickets for Quantum’s first sailing will go on sale to the public June 4, with Royal Caribbean regular cruisers getting an early shot at tickets starting May 27. Prices are not announced yet. Richard Fain, chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., said there would be no extra fees for many of the ship’s attractions, including The North Star and skydiving.

Quantum of the Seas’ sister ship in the Quantum class, Anthem of the Seas, will sail spring 2015.
