That’s what Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines are calling their new ship, that is, a smart-ship. They’re talking about the new Quantum Of The Seas and this is what they’re saying…

“There is a ship that provides blazing fast connectivity at sea to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Vine. A ship that lets its guests download music and stream videos from the cloud, Netflix, Hulu and more at speeds equal to those on land. A ship that lets you play Xbox Live with other gamers anywhere around the world.
A ship that provides connectivity that’s wearable, portable and shareable. A ship where technology is there at every turn to make the guest experience richer, fuller, more personalized than ever before. No manual required. This isn’t a ship. This is a Smartship. This is Quantum of the Seas. This changes everything.

  • Smart connect: Blazing internet connectivity speeds lets you post to Facebook, Tweet, stream Netflix, play Xbox Live with gamers worldwide and more
  • Smart concierge: Via wearable and portable technology, you can book shore excursions, make dinner reservations and more anywhere onboard the ship
  • Smart experiences: You’ll experience never seen wonders at sea like Two70°SM featuring dancing robotic screens; Virtual Balconies; smart art and our Bionic Bar
  • Smart check-in: Go from sidewalk to ship in 10 minutes with no lines to wait in. Plus, smarter luggage tags means you can track your bag as it makes its way to your stateroom”

I’ve been on the Allure of The Seas and it was fantastic, so I’m looking forward to sampling this ship.
