Royal Caribbean’s #QuantumOfTheSeas: World’s First Smartship is #RoyalWOW!

The Latina Mom Bloggers team was recently invited aboard Royal Caribbean’s newest cruise ship Quantum of the Seas that currently sails from Cape Liberty, New Jersey. The team was invited to experience the new wave of unprecedented first-at-sea features and amenities, including superfast wireless connectivity, the world’s first robotic bartenders, a skydiving stimulator, bumper cars, futuristic entertainment, and more.

New RFID WOWband wristbands

Quantum of the Seas allows every guest to be connected online 24/7 while on board. The ship will also offer new RFID WOWband wristbands, which require only a simple tap to quickly navigate the ship, make onboard purchases, serve as the room key and more.

Paving the way for at-sea entertainment, Quantum of the Seas features robotic bartenders at the Bionic Bar powered by Makr Shakr. Can you believe the idea of having robotic bartenders on board came up in April of this year?! Royal Caribbean wants the best for their guest so they sure know how to make their ideas come to life in a matter of months. Also, don’t think you can get away from tipping these amazing bartenders! Even though tips are not required, they are recommended because the money goes to the crew welfare fund.

As part of their technology upgrade, each crewmember onboard Quantum of the Seas will receive a personal Microsoft Windows tablet, with a suite of services and apps, and it’s theirs to keep. Crewmembers will be able to Skype with their families back home – definitely #RoyalWOW.

All Quantum of the Seas crewmembers will receive their very own tablet!

Our favorite was Wonderland. Beautifully decorated with a surreal theme, guests paint their own frames in order for the menu to appear before them. Dishes arrive in a myriad of sizes and variations to grasp the true whimsical nature of Wonderland.
