Take a capsule from the London Eye Ferris wheel, attach it to a rotating 300ft arm, and then mount it on the deck of a monster cruise ship -- that's pretty much the North Star. Set to debut on Royal Caribbean's new "Quantum" class cruise ships in 2015, it will offer passengers an unrivaled view of, well, the ocean. And the Senor Frogs in Cancun, probably. Either way, check out the pictures below and marvel at how cool it will be.
