Quantum of the Seas’ ‘North Star’ will offer bird’s eye views

As details emerge for Quantum of the Seas, you can tell the execs at Royal Caribbean can hardly contain their excitement. Any why not? We expected Oasis of the Seas to be a hard act to follow. But guess what? The cruise line known for innovation has delivered another “WOW” in spades with this ship.
