Royal Caribbean International will soon offer iPads in all staterooms aboard its luxury liner, Splendour of the Seas. The tablets will be pre-loaded with a list on onboard events and activities, personal daily itineraries including shore excursions, restaurant and room service menus (with ordering functions), internet access, and the ability to monitor a onboard accounts.
The iPads will be rolled-out from mid-February 2012 on Splendour of the Seas before being extended to all Vision-class ships over the next two years.
“Based on consumer research, we added the iPads to greatly enhance guest communication, interactivity and to continue to offer industry leading technology that helps enhance the guest experience,” said Lisa Bauer, Senior Vice President of Hotel Operations for Royal Caribbean International. “This is just one of the many exciting ways that Royal Caribbean continues to provide our guests with the ultimate cruise experience.”
The Splendour of the Seas’ iPads will feature English and Portuguese languages.
