It isn’t just the tech pundits we see being gung-ho about iPads. The Apple tablet is fast becoming the top-most preferred choice when it comes to in-flight entertainment or even on luxury cruises. Royal Caribbean has elevated the level of privileges for their guests by announcing that each their stateroom on their luxury cruise line Splendor of the Seas will now have an iPad.
Royal Caribbean’s romance with technology
The Royal Caribbean International took this step of stationing an iPad in every stateroom after a thorough research which suggested that iPad was the most proffered tablet and it has the potential to greatly enhance guest communication, interactivity and to continue to offer industry leading technology that helps enhance the guest experience. The cruise line company has already established their name for being the first when it comes to embracing technology and offering state-of-the-art privileges to their guests. Their sister company by the name Celebrity Cruises recently unveiled their very own iPhone app which is an epitome of a natural evolution of their programming, thus setting the red carpet for a new generation of cruise passenger. These ships are also the authorized retailer of Apple products and accessories where they also have an “enrichment center” that offers classes on the iLife suite of programs and other general topics.
The Royal Caribbean experience with iPad
iPads will empower their guests as an additional medium to access information on their cruise vacations. Daily shipboard newsletter of events and activities personal daily itineraries and shore excursions, monitor their onboard account, order room service, view restaurant menus, access the Internet and watch movies are some of the things that can you do with it.
