GALVESTON, TX – Finally, cruise ships are in the news for something not related to mass illness.

Royal Caribbean’s first ship with virtual balconies is currently on its maiden voyage out of the port of Galveston.

What is a virtual balcony, you ask? Well, it’s a giant 80-inch TV that livestreams video of what’s going on outside the ship. It basically gives you the illusion that you shelled out a ton of cash for a room with a view, when in reality you decided to be frugal and stay in an interior room.

So while you won’t get the feeling of sea breezes whipping through your hair, soak in the view, and think of all the money you saved.
