North Star

On Royal Caribbean cruises, you can take a ride in what is called the North Star. It is a glass-enclosed pod attached to a giant mechanical arm that lifts the pod up and down and out over the side of the ship. The arm can raise the capsule some 300 feet above sea level and turn 360 degrees. The inspiration for North Star was the London Eye and North Star has been awarded a Guinness World Record for tallest viewing deck on a cruise ship.
