Royal Caribbean Doubles Down on Tech

Lover of technology?  Then Royal Caribbean may have the solution for you! After a successful test run on the Allure and Splendor, Royal Caribbean is aiming to add an iPad to each of their Vision-class cabins regardless of category in the coming two years.

With these in-room iPads, guests will be able to do a variety of things, including:

  • Access the daily Cruise Compass of events and activities
  • Access personal daily itineraries, including shore excursions
  • Monitor their onboard account
  • Order room service
  • View restaurant menus
  • Access the internet
  • Watch movies
More complimentary games and activities have also been proposed, but we will have to see as the fleetwide rollout begins. Will this replace the old paper Cruise Compass, or simply supplement the current offerings?  Not sure yet.  One feature this definitely won't include is internet access, which will still be offered at an additional fee

Does having an iPad in your cabin make you lean toward Royal Caribbean for your next cruise?  Maybe not, but it sure does look cool!
