Imagine a world where you can kick back with your feet up and robots serve you exquisite cocktails, your dreams come to life on a big screen and everything you need is literally within reach – it sounds too good to be true, right? Think again.
Royal Caribbean have set the bar higher than ever having just announced the launch of their innovative ship: Quantum of the Seas. Tech-savvy travellers will be wowed by the revolutionary new features that will make holidaying on a cruise even more exciting.
SMART Check-in: from shore to ship in record time
The new technology introduced by Royal Caribbean aims to change the travel experience for cruise goers. A Quantum vacation is made simple from the moment you book with new digital technology that makes boarding documents accessible online – guests can upload their own ID photo and receive boarding confirmation straight to their device. This will not only mean a paper-free holiday, but will minimise journey time by allowing guests to check-in digitally, avoiding those lengthy queues and tedious forms!
In addition, guests will have the ability to track their luggage from their own device. With new radio frequency identification (RFID) tracking technology, luggage will be tagged at point of drop off and users can use their device to track its journey from the port to their cabin.
SMART Concierge: flexibility at your fingertips
The RFID technology doesn’t just stop at tracking luggage; it has also been incorporated into WOWband wristbands. With one simple tap they can act as a room key, can be used for on-board purchases and can even navigate the ship.
With two new mobile apps, guests can plan and tailor their full cruise experience. The apps allow you to make dinner reservations, book shore excursions and make appointments at the spa. As if that wasn’t enough, they track your program, which means keeping on top of your itinerary is simpler than ever.
SMART Connect: Downloads at the speed of modern life
With new exceptional bandwidth at sea, guests will have access to fast broadband connections that match that of onshore speeds. Cruise goers can be online day and night – checking e mails, streaming videos, updating social media and keeping in touch with family and friends via video calling – just like they would at home. This new technology enables people to stay connected whilst out at sea. It has also made it possible for one of the SeaPods in the SeaPlex to come alive with video gaming that allows you to compete with other gamers worldwide.
SMART Experiences: shaking martinis and spinning screens
Technology powers new experiences on board that set a new level of luxury. In the Bionic Bar users can place drink orders via their tablet and sit back and relax while a robot mixes it up. The new Two70 venue brings your imagination to life with a troupe of six agile Roboscreens that rotate, soaring and twisting solo before uniting as one to create scenes for the entertainment of passengers.
Guests will also have the opportunity to experience the brand new Vistarama which incorporates floor-to-ceiling glass walls that transform into an expansive ambient surface displaying any scene you want: real or imagined.
The Quantum cruise holiday combines three types of visual media: Kinetic; Video; and Interactive. Cabins have virtual balconies that bring the outside in – 80” LED screens display whatever is outside the ship in your cabin to create a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere. This cutting edge innovation and digital technology makes the Quantum of the Seas a game changer in the cruise industry.
These are just some of the many features that can be found on board. Royal Caribbean International have a created a truly memorable ship that has helped to create a one-of-a-kind experience for cruise holidays. The Quantum of the Seas can offer you more than you ever thought possible, so much so that it is about to change the future of holidays forever.
