HI-TECH UP­GRADE

Life & Style Weekend - - ESCAPE -

Royal Caribbean Cruises is rolling out tech­nol­ogy through­out its 48-ship fleet over the next two years that prom­ises guests faster board­ing and easy sign-ups for shore ex­cur­sions. A smart­phone app will be avail­able to guests that al­lows them to or­der drinks, sign up to shore ex­cur­sions and make din­ner reser­va­tions with­out leav­ing their seat by the pool. Other tech­nol­ogy in­cludes fa­cial recog­ni­tion soft­ware that will al­low guests to skip check-in lines. Vir­tual re­al­ity ex­pe­ri­ences will also be of­fered that trans­form ship spa­ces into vir­tual en­vi­ron­ments and in­ter­ac­tive games. State­room ceil­ings might be re­placed by starry skies, or restaurant walls might trans­form into the sights of an out­door cafe.
