App based check-ins, chipped wristbands and luggage tracking are just a few of the innovations launched with Royal Caribbean's Quantum Class ships. Dubbed "Smartships",Royal Caribbean is changing the way we interact with our vacations.
If all works correctly, you'll be able to come aboard this ship minus long lines during the check-in process and track your luggage through to delivery in your stateroom. (what I wouldn't have given for THAT app a couple of years ago. My luggage sailed with me, but not WITH me!)
How would you like to have at your fingertips...what excursions are available, pre-book your dinner times at specialty restaurants and find out what entertainment is scheduled and when? It's all available now on the Royal Caribbean smartships, changing the way you cruise forever.
Let's face it, no matter how much we want to disconnect and unwind, we're still a wired world. I'm not sure about you, but I love sharing pictures with friends and family that can't be on my trip with me. Not to mention, finding information easily and quickly. Vacations are enhanced by apps today, and I've found the well crafted ones to be very useful in making my trip that much more fulfilling.
How far can these innovations go? Royal Caribbean's smartships not only include useful apps and features we've seen unveiled on other ships (virtual balconies and portholes), but they're adding a few twists.
Shaken, not stirred! James Bond would have loved one of the newest features on board the Quantum Class ships...the Bionic Bar. It's the first true robotic bar in the world, taking mixology to a whole other level. Smart Art is another innovation, creating giant walls of art, photography and interactive "magic".
If you're like me, and had to do business onboard ship, then you'll appreciate the best-ever-at-sea, 03B Satellite Internet service. Promising to be strong and fast enough to handle all the sharing and posting a guest could ever want, as well as offering traveling business people the confidence and speed they need. No more staying up for hours into the night, waiting for stagnant satellite speed, trying to get your work done or conferencing with clients!
While some may lament at these innovations, and staying connected on vacation, these technology change will enhance, engage and entice cruise guests all while changing what guests have come to expect from their cruise vacation.
